Where to find the status lights on an Airpod?
Depending on your AirPods model, the Status Light can be found inside or outside the charging case of your AirPods. If you’re using the 1st or 2nd-generation AirPods, then you’ll find the Status Light within the charging case of the AirPods between the two earbuds. Simply open the lid of the charging case to see the Status Light of the AirPods.
If you’re using AirPods Pro, then the Status Light is on the front side of the Charging Case, just below the lid. The Status Light will stay on for some eight seconds when you put it on the Wireless Charger for charging.
What do these blinking lights on the Status Light mean?
AirPods and AirPods Pro cases have a single LED-Light section which is capable of changing to 4 different colors where every color denotes a message to the user about the AirPods like are the Airpods charged or not, how much battery is left, connection issue, etc. Let’s decode the meaning of the blinking lights of AirPods and AirPods Pro.
- Flashing White light: This light occurs when you press the button on the back side of your Airpod’s charging case. It tells that your Airpods have entered pairing mode and are ready for a Bluetooth connection with a device.
