How to Pair Airpods with iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV
Apple ditched its 3.5 mm headphone jack and gave iPhone users AirPods instead. These high-quality wireless headphones are now available to not only iPhone buyers but can be bought on their own too.
Among features that make them great is how easy it is to pair them with your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac and Apple TV. Even better, pair them with your iPhone and they automatically connect to the rest of your Apple devices.
How to Pair Airpods with iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV:
Pair Your AirPods with Your iPhone
It’s easy to pair your AirPods with your iPhone running iOS 10. Your first tip? Leave the AirPods in their case while you pair them with your iPhone.

Unpairing your AirPods work the same as pairing them. When you unpair them with your iPhone, you also automatically disconnect them from your iPhone, Mac and Apple Watch. Here’s how to do it. However, if you unpair them from your iPad, they will only be unpaired from your iPad.
