One of the most frequently asked questions for Apple users is reflected on Google’s most-searched list – how to connect AirPods without case?
A more important question is whether or not it’s possible to connect AirPods to an apple device without the case.
The simple answer is that you need the case to connect your AirPods to the Apple device for the first time. After the initial connection has been established, you will no longer require the case to connect your AirPods to your device. As long as you don’t unpair the AirPods and the Apple device, you won’t need the case.
Let us now look at the issue thoroughly by discussing the many capabilities and limitations of the AirPods when it’s left without its case.
Is it Possible to Connect AirPods without the Case?
As we mentioned before, the case is only required to establish the initial connection between your AirPods and your Apple device. Once the AirPods and your preferred device are paired, you don’t need the case – the connection will be established automatically each time you turn on your AirPods.
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to connect your AirPods to a new device, or an unpaired device if you do not have the case with you.
Despite all the rage surrounding the AirPods case, it only serves two main functions – charging the AirPods and being responsible for the initial pairing of the AirPods with any new device.
The button on the back of the case has some of its functions including resetting, reconnecting and connecting your AirPods manually via Bluetooth.
Is it Possible to Connect my AirPods with a Different Case?
Trust me, it’s easy to lose an AirPods case; I’ve lost quite a few myself! In that situation, I don’t have a substitute available immediately. But I need my music while working out, right? So I can just borrow a different AirPods case from my friend and use that to pair my iPhone with the AirPods.
All AirPods cases are interchangeable, which is a good thing as it enables you to buy a replacement from the store in case you lose it.
The process of connecting your AirPods with a different case is quite familiar – all you need to do is put the AirPods in the case, hold the button until the AirPods are reset, and then sync them with your device.
Can you Connect your AirPods to a Device when its Case is Dead?
I often forget to charge my AirPods case. Sue me, it’s just too many things to charge at once! So what happens if my AirPods case is dead, and I have to connect my AirPods with my Apple device?
Fortunately, Apple allows you to connect your AirPods to a device even if the case is dead provided that the AirPods themselves have sufficient and they have been already paired with your device before.
Moving on to the shortcomings, you won’t be able to connect your AirPods to a new device if your case has run out of battery.
Is there any Way to Charge the AirPods without the Case?
Unfortunately, that just sounds too good to be true. There is no alternative method to charge your AirPods. If you have lost your case, then you need to buy a replacement as a permanent solution.
Using your friend’s case to connect your AirPods to your device won’t give you a long-term fix for the issue. Fortunately, Apple allows you to buy a replacement for the case in case you have lost it, so you won’t have to buy the AirPods again.
