Apple’s AirPods are Bluetooth earbuds that are entirely cordless and developed specifically for iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad. However, AirPods are compatible with a wide range of other devices, including a Windows laptop.
This article will show you how to pair and connect your AirPods to your computer.
Put your AirPods in the case and press and hold the little button on the rear until the status light on the back starts blinking white. Your AirPods should appear in the “Add a device” window in your laptop’s Bluetooth settings, where you may pair and connect them with a click.
Here’s a whole step-by-step guide with photos.

Open Settings from the Start menu on a PC.
Select devices, then go to Bluetooth and other devices and press the + sign next to “Add Bluetooth or other device.”
Once your AirPods appear on the screen, open the case lid, hold the button, and pick your AirPods.
After the headphones have connected, click “Done.”
Not all PCs, especially desktops, come with Bluetooth. If you have a laptop, though, your computer is likely to have Bluetooth capabilities satta.
That’s all there is to it, guys. Enjoy your strange new world, in which your AirPods and PC work in unison.
