When it comes to phone accessories, AirPods have always been a crowd favourite. You must be able to notice any problems with your AirPods and their case in order to properly care for them. As a result, we’ll be answering your queries about why your AirPod case is blinking red.
When it comes to storing your AirPods, an AirPod case is a must-have. Not only do they protect your AirPods, but you can also customise them with a case cover, which you can even match to your phone case.
If you’ve just bought a new pair of AirPods, you might be perplexed by the many coloured lights that show on the case. Don’t worry, we’ll explain what these flashes mean.
It’s helpful to know what your AirPod case is trying to tell you so you can figure out what’s wrong. On this case, there are a few distinct colours that can appear, and these colours can either shine continuously or flash.
Why Is My AirPod Case Blinking Red?
On this case, the light flashing a colour is known as the status light.’ When you open the case, you’ll notice a light on the exterior or on the inside. It usually emits a single colour light, but depending on the situation, this light may flash or change colour.
‘Which AirPods have a light on the case’s outside?’ The light on the first-generation AirPod cases is on the inside of the case, however, the light on the second-generation and Burga cases is conveniently on the outside.
Flashing Red Light
If your AirPods case is flashing a red or amber colour at you, it’s likely that something went wrong. It’s nothing to be concerned about; it usually indicates a pairing mistake, and all you have to do now is reset your AirPods.
Put your AirPods in the case, close the top, and wait 30 seconds to reset them. Then, without removing the AirPods, open the lid. Go to settings and then ‘Bluetooth’ on your phone.
Click the ‘devices’ button and search for the name of your AirPods device. ‘Forget this device’ by clicking the I button next to the device’s name. To confirm, click one more.
To properly disconnect your AirPods from all connected devices, press and hold the button on the rear of your AirPods case. You’ll have to go through the setup process again once you see the white light again to reconnect.
If this does not work for you, you should have it checked by a professional.
If you notice a red light on your AirPod case, it means your battery is low. While the AirPods are not inside the case, an amber or red light on the case indicates that the case needs to be charged. At this point, you should be able to get one more charge out of the case before it’s fully dead.
If your AirPod case displays a red or amber light while the AirPods are inside, it implies your AirPods are low on power and are being charged by the case. Remove them only when they are fully charged.
When your case is plugged in, the red or amber light will illuminate to indicate that the case is charging. Keep the case plugged in until a green light appears.
A solid red light on your AirPods case is not a problem; you simply need to charge your case. There’s nothing you can do if your AirPods are inside the case and the light is blinking because the AirPods themselves are already charging.
What Do The Chimes On The AirPods Mean?
AirPods will play one of three distinct chimes to keep you informed:
Chime with a Connection
When you connect your AirPods to a device for the first time, they will create a chime sound to indicate that the connection was successful.
Low Battery Chime
When one or both of your AirPods reach 10% battery life, they emit a chime to alert you that it’s time to charge them.
Power Down Chime
You’ll probably hear the last sound shortly if you ignored the battery-low chime. It means the AirPods have run out of battery and are shutting down.
If Amber Blinking Lights Appear
There aren’t many issues with AirPods in terms of functionality.
So it’s nice to know that the one problem that could arise is readily rectified without having to go somewhere.
All you need to know is how to reset your AirPods quickly.
Don’t worry, it’s not too complicated.
Simply follow these steps and you’ll be back to listening to your podcasts in no time.
Disconnect your AirPods
When the earphones blink amber, it usually means there’s a problem pairing them to the device.
You’ll want to make sure that your iPhone or iPad is totally turned off so that you can start over.
Simply go to your Bluetooth settings on your device, click on your AirPods, and select “Forget This Device.”
Now that the signal has been restored, it’s time to delete your AirPods’ memory.
On the rear of the case, look for the setup button.
Hold the button down until the LED light flashes amber and then becomes a steady white blink.
Your AirPods will be reset and ready to reconnect after roughly 20 seconds.
Connect your AirPods to your iOS or Android device.
It’s time to reconnect and enjoy your audio experience now that the device’s memory and the AirPods have been cleared.
Simply Pair the AirPods.
The white LED light should start blinking.
This indicates that they are in the process of pairing. Return to the Bluetooth settings on your iPhone or iPad and look for your AirPods in the list of discoverable devices.
To reconnect, tap them.
Why is the charging case for my AirPods orange?
We've already discussed what a red light indicates on an AirPod case, but what does orange mean on an AirPod case? Any hue of red, amber, or orange, regardless matter how it appears on different devices, implies the same thing.
Either your case needs to be charged, charging is in progress, or a pairing error has occurred. This is dependent on whether or not your AirPods are inside the case and whether or not the light is blinking.
What does the green light on the AirPods case indicate?
You may have also noticed a green light on the front or under the lid of your AirPod case. When the AirPods are inside the case, a solid green light indicates that both the AirPods and the case are fully charged. When the AirPods are removed from the case, it just indicates that the case is completely charged.
So, when charging, does the AirPod case light stay on? That's not the case. The status light will only be illuminated for a few seconds.
If you see a green light while charging the case, it implies the case is fully charged. At this time, you can remove the case from the charger.
Why is the case on my AirPods flashing green?
If the green light is flashing rather than solid, it usually means there's a problem. It usually means that the case is having trouble recognising one of the AirPods.
In this situation, try factory resetting your case and, if that fails, contact the retailer where you purchased it. They should be able to aid you in locating the issue.
What Happens If My AirPod Case Isn't Colorful?
Your AirPod case has run out of juice if there is no light coming from it at all. When the battery is low, the light will turn red, and when the battery is fully charged, the light will turn off. Until the signal turns green, you should charge your case as soon as feasible.
