Depending on the type of Mac you own, there are a few steps you should take to make sure your Airpods are connected properly to your Mac. Whether you’re using a MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Pro Retina, there are a few simple things you can do to ensure you’re getting the best possible audio.
Turn off other speakers
Putting up a drool worthy Macbook or MacBook Air and using the same Bluetooth enabled headset or pair to play the game of chess might be a daunting task, but there is a work around. The best bet involves plugging and unplugging the AirPods several times, and then using a different headset or pair of headphones to play the game of chess. If you do this correctly, you should end up with a much more enjoyable experience, and a far more enjoyable experience for your mate. The process is also a lot less intrusive than it sounds.
Of course, you can also eschew the hassle of plugging and unplugging the AirPods, and play the game with your own acoustic acoustic headset or pair of headphones. This will also free up the Macbook or MacBook Air to play the game of chess with your mate. The trick is in choosing a headset or pair of headphones that will play nicely with your mate, and not a pair that has not been tested out of the box.
Turn off Spatial Audio
Whether you want to turn off spatial audio on your AirPods or other Apple devices, there are some steps you need to follow. Spatial audio is an advanced feature that can improve movie sound and provide a more immersive experience. Spatial sound uses AI technology to mimic sound waves coming from all around the room.
Spatial audio was introduced with iOS 14. Apple’s version of spatial audio works by using Dolby Atmos technology. This technology lets audio follow the movement of your head. It can also be used on compatible AirPods to provide surround sound.
To turn off spatial audio on your AirPods, you must first scan your head. You’ll hear a distinct beep when the scan completes. If you don’t hear a beep, try scanning your left ear and rescanning. Once the scan is complete, you’ll hear a bright blue icon in the top right corner of the screen. If you hear a black icon, the spatial audio feature is disabled.
Turning off Spatial Audio will also allow you to disable Head Tracking. Head Tracking is a feature that turns on Spatial Audio and adjusts audio based on the movements of your head. This feature is only available on iPads running iOS 15.1 or later.
Turning off Spatial Audio on your iPhone or other iOS device is easy. Just open the Settings app. Once you open the Settings app, select Audio/Visual. Once you select Audio/Visual, you’ll see a box for Audio/Visual Settings. Select the Spatial audio box and turn the feature off.
You can also turn Spatial Audio off or on by using the Control Center. To do this, open the Control Center and go to Bluetooth. If you don’t see a Bluetooth icon, you can switch it off by tapping on the Bluetooth icon and swiping down.
You can also turn off Spatial Audio on your iPad. Just open the Settings app and go to Bluetooth. Once you open the Settings app, go to Audio/Visual and turn the feature off.
If you’re not sure how to turn off spatial audio on your AirPods, check the Spatial Audio section of your device’s Settings. Once you know what the settings are, you can make sure that they’re set correctly.
Reset the Bluetooth connection
Whether you are having trouble pairing your AirPods to your Mac or if you’re experiencing a Bluetooth issue, you can quickly and easily reset the Bluetooth connection. To do this, follow these simple steps.
First, turn on Bluetooth on your Mac. If you’re using macOS Sierra or later, you’ll see a blue Bluetooth icon in your menu bar. It’s usually next to the WiFi symbol. If you don’t see the Bluetooth icon, open System Preferences and click Bluetooth.
Next, click on the AirPods in the Bluetooth device list and make sure that they are paired. This will usually require that you hold down the charging case button until the amber light flashes white. If the AirPods are not paired, it’s time to restart your Mac and reset the Bluetooth connection.
Next, connect your AirPods to your Mac using the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar. You can also use the Bluetooth menu in System Preferences to check if your AirPods are paired.
Finally, connect your AirPods to your iOS device. This will require that they are charged, dust-free, and signed with the same Apple ID. If they are not signed with the same Apple ID, you may need to rename them.
If all else fails, you may need to contact Apple Support. You can reach them by phone or through live chat. Their customer service representatives can help you with any questions you may have regarding your Bluetooth devices. They can also help you fix any problems you may have with your Mac’s Bluetooth hardware.
If you’re using macOS High Sierra or later, you can use the same shortcut keys to reset the Bluetooth connection. Alternatively, you can use a terminal. You will need to type a password. You may not see a visual confirmation if you’re using a terminal, but you can be sure that you’ll be able to access your Bluetooth devices again once you’ve restarted your Mac.
If you’re using macOS Big Sur, you can also reset the Bluetooth connection by clicking Reset Bluetooth module in the Bluetooth menu. However, this option isn’t the default, so you’ll need to use the terminal to get it done.
Clean the earbuds and charging case
Getting your AirPods and charging case cleaned can help avoid some of the annoying problems you might be experiencing. This guide will walk you through the steps you need to take to get your headphones looking as good as new.
The first step to cleaning your AirPods is to remove the buds from the case. This can be done with a pair of detachable silicone tips that are often included in the box. If you don’t have a pair of detachable tips, you can purchase them separately on Amazon.
Next, you need to clean the charging port. You can use a soft bristled brush to gently clean the area. You don’t want to use anything sharp because it could damage the charging port. You can also use a tack to remove any lint or wax build-up.
Depending on the brand of AirPods you have, you can use either a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe or a disinfectant wipe. You don’t want to use a cloth that’s soaked in alcohol because it can damage the speaker mesh. You should also be sure to use a cloth that’s lint-free to avoid getting it into the charging port.
You’ll also need to wipe the AirPod Pro tips. You can do this by soaking them in warm soapy water for at least 30 minutes. When they’re completely dry, you can put them back on the AirPods.
You can also clean the AirPods’ external surface by using a basic microfiber cloth. You can also try a disinfectant wipe, but Apple recommends against using a wipe on the speaker mesh.
If you have earwax on the AirPods or the case, you can use a dry cotton swab to remove it. For stubborn earwax, you can use a toothpick or Fun-Tak to clean it up.
If you have any dirt or grime build-up on the AirPods’ tips, you can also use a thin toothpick to remove it. You can also use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean the charging port connector.
The AirPods’ charging ports can also collect dust and lint. You can clean the charging port with a clean cotton swab and a soft bristled brush.
