How Do Airpods Work?

A pair of AirPods are housed in a charging case that connects to a wireless network using Bluetooth protocols.

Bluetooth protocols enable connectivity between AirPods and their charging case, but not between them and the case. On the other hand, the charging case is designed primarily to:

  • Charging your AirPods
  • First time pairing the AirPods
  • Protecting and holding the pods

Other than these, the AirPods case has no objective function from the factory. If you’ve previously connected your AirPods to your iPhone or iPad, you don’t need the case to continue pairing.

Yes, if your AirPods’ battery isn’t dead, you can connect your AirPods to your device.

If you lose your charging case, you can get a replacement at an Apple store. Amazon has them for about $70.
