How to Check Your AirPods Battery Status

If you're like me, you always have AirPods with you whether you're working out, commuting, or just relaxing at home. What I love most about them is that they last a long time on a single charge.


Even though AirPods have a long battery life, it's still important to check their health from time to time. After all, you don't want to be stuck with your AirPods when you need them the most! Here's how to check the health of your AirPods battery.


How to Check AirPod Battery with Siri

The easiest and quickest way to know the battery level of your AirPods is to ask Siri. Siri can tell you the battery status of your AirPods through a quick voice prompt. You can ask "What's the battery level of my AirPods?" and Siri will instantly answer you with the current battery percentage of your AirPods and tell you if they need charging. This method is very simple, you don't need to turn on other devices, just your voice.


How to Check AirPod Battery Using the Case

Another easy way to get battery level information is to put the headphones in their case and check the status light on the AirPods case.

  • Green light:

It means that the charging case is fully charged and the current battery status is very sufficient.

  • Amberlight:

When the charging case is not charging, it means that the power is low, and the remaining power is less than a full charge, reminding the user to charge the case immediately. If you are charging the case, the amber light also means that it is charging. When the power is full, it will change to green.

  • White light:

The white light is rare and appears when resetting the AirPods charging case or when searching for a Bluetooth device.
