Apple Airpods manual

AirPods are wireless Bluetooth earbuds designed by Apple Inc. They were first announced on September 7, 2016, alongside the iPhone 7. Within two years, they became Apple’s most popular accessory. They are Apple’s entry-level wireless headphones, sold alongside the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max.

Apple produces other instructional materials such as Product and Safety Info, and QuickStart user guides for each model. Identify which model you have and then download the user guide you need. Getting the most out of your AirPods requires some understanding of how to use them. That’s where having the owner’s manual comes in handy. With proper usage, there is less risk of damage, and you’ll learn how to get the most out of it.
