There are times when one of your Airpod is damaged but the other side of the same is working well. Or sometimes when you lose a part of your AirPods you replace it with a new one.
The question that now arises in your mind is can we use two different Airpods together? All your queries will be answered in this article below.
Can we use two different Airpods?
Now, the answer to your question is, Yes. You can connect two different Airpods but there is a condition for this. You would need to have the same generation Airpods as the one you currently have as that is the only way you would be able to connect two different Airpods.
Now, the process of connecting both Airpods (with the same generation) is not as difficult as one may think. You would just need to follow these small steps:
Firstly, you would need to put both your current and new Airpods in the charging case.
Now, keep the lid open, do not close the lid yet.
Hold down the button at the backside of the charging case which denotes the reset button.
Now, the AirPods would be reset. Now synching is needed to make them work.
Did we lose our Airpods?
Sometimes when people cannot find their Airpods, they believe that they have lost them. Because of its small size, it even gets difficult to locate, and therefore, people purchase a new pair of Airpods. While that may sound easy to you, there is something even easier than that which is using the ‘Find my iPhone’ feature. This is a special feature by Apple to find your Apple devices.
Though this feature can only be properly used if your Airpods are within your Bluetooth range. This special feature from Apple can be very beneficial as you would prevent spending money for no reason which can be saved and also would not have to go through the process of pairing two different Airpods.
How to pair two different Airpods?
This may feel like it would be quite difficult to do so but it is not as hard as it looks. You just need to follow the steps given below to pair the Airpods
Place both your Airpods in a rechargeable case.
The case’s lid should remain open and the Status Light should be amber in color. (Amber lights when your pods are inserted mean that your AirPods are not fully charged).
Press the button on the backside of the case for about 5-7 seconds. The light should change into a flashing light and then into white light. If it stays as amber, you would need to charge the case immediately.

How to connect two Airpods to one phone?
Before the launch of iOS 13, it was quite impossible to pair two different Airpods to one phone device. Although, with later upgrades on the software, now it is possible. This is due to the launch of the Audio Sharing feature which enables you to connect two different Airpods to an iPhone. To do this, you would need to follow the following steps:-
Connect your AirPods by placing them near your phone and then open the case and click on Connect option.
Then follow the instructions and when you’re ready, click on the Done option.
Swipe down from the top right corner of the screen and choose the Airplay icon in the Control Center.
Below the pre-connected headphones, click on the Share Audio option.
Hold the 2nd Airpods case next to your phone, and then open the Charging Case. OR if you’ve Airpods Max, then just hold them next to your connected device.
When you see your other headphones’ connection on the screen of your device, click on the Share Audio option.
