Here’s how to connect your AirPods to all of your Apple devices
After unboxing the AirPods, unlock your iPhone then open the AirPods charging case next to your iPhone (you can also do this on your iPad). Don’t do anything else. After a second or two, there will be a pop-up on your iPhone asking if you want to connect the AirPods to it. Tap Connect. A few seconds later, the popup will display the current battery level of your AirPods and the charging case.
