Plug your AirPods Pro case into a power source, using your lightning to USB-C charging cable.
The case will light up orange, if the case needs a charge. It will light up green, if the case is fully charged.
If the case does not light up when plugging it in, then it's not receiving power. Check to make sure your outlet is working and that your charging cable isn't damaged.
- Put each individual AirPod Pro earbud into its slot with the little metal part facing down.
- Once they are completely in the case, close the lid of the case.
The indicator light will either—show orange, if the earbuds need to be charged or show green if the earbuds are already fully charged.
Note: the light is not an indicator of how much charge is missing from the earbuds. That's what the final step in this guide tells you.
It took me a while to figure this one out, so let me save you the time by telling you how to check your charge levels with the AirPods Pro.
- Have a device open that you've synced with the AirPods Pro (such as your iPhone or Mac).
- Put your AirPods Pro's earbuds into the case and close it.
- Now, simply open up the lid of your AirPods Pro case.
- Look on the screen of the synced device.
You should see the charge levels for both the AirPods Pro case and earbuds (as displayed above).
With college semesters approaching right around the corner, it's more important than ever to be proactive in making sure you select the right product for you.
