Out of all the tricky (albeit nifty) features I had to learn about the AirPods Pro, checking the battery life had to be the easiest one I missed.

Seriously! If you have an iPhone, then it's just two steps and takes less than a minute to check the battery levels of your AirPods Pro and the AirPods Pro case.

But just in case you don't have an iPhone, I'm going to show you three ways to check the battery of your AirPods Pro, depending on your device.

In this guide, I'll show you how to check the battery levels of your AirPods Pro:

  • on iPhone
  • on Mac
  • on Android Phone

Let's get into it!

We know that Apple does not like to make things easy unless you use the complete suite of Apple products. So it's no surprise that checking the battery levels of your AirPods Pro on your Android phone or device is not as easy as with an iPhone.

No fear. We'll show you how to make it nearly as easy!

  1. Make sure you first connect your AirPods Pro to your Android device.
  2. Download and install the "AirBattery" app from the Google Play Store.
  3. Once the app is installed, then simply open your AirPods Pro case near your Android device.

A pop up will appear that displays your AirPods Pro battery levels. The app also gives you other information about your AirPods, too, so you'll have bonus AirPods Pro information!

Check out the new WWDC22 Apple Keynote Highlights

With a superhero, futuristic theme and a focus on next generation technology, Apple WWDC22 (Worldwide Developer's Conference 2022) approached Apple's newest software and technology from the mindset of world-change, equality, and ethical impact. Introduced with the statement "Code one, code all," Apple largely focused on providing education, jobs, and equal opportunity to developers, while employing a fun superhero theme complete with Craig Federighi doing a full on superhero run and combing his hands through his hair. While WWDC22's introduction was slightly less exciting and action-packed than in previous years, it focused on big-picture issues that are indisputably more important than some flashy WWDC introduction. Don't worry, though, if you were hoping for some flashy new products to buy this Fall, you won't be disappointed. Though the Apple Summer WWDC's tend to be more about software and less about hardware, there are two new products announced that you can spend the next four months or so drooling over! If you are as eager as I am to scope out those two new, next generation products, let's get into it! Note: Not every new Apple feature is listed in this article. The purpose of this article is to give you an easy-to-read version of an otherwise long event, since I know not everyone has two hours on a Monday to watch the Apple Keynote.
