How to Clean Your AirPods?

How to Clean Your AirPods?

Do you want to know how to clean your AirPods? Hence, you will require water, alcohol, a cloth, and a fine-edged tool such as a toothpick. It helps to improve audio quality and decrease contact with germs. In this case, ensure that water or alcohol must not get inside the earbuds or case.

For iPhone users, these have become the most famous earbuds on the market. But these also get dirty like other earbuds and devices. For instance, these can get clogged up with earwax. In addition, these can accumulate grime while being lost under your car seat. However, everything we touch daily must contain germs and grease anyway.

We are fortunate that the process is easier. Using a toothpick or pin, water, and a lint-free cloth can simplify the task. But if dirty spots will not come out, you should use some rubbing alcohol.

How to Clean Your Airpods:

In this case, you should use a soft, lint-free cloth (microfiber cloth ) and a tool with a good end. Hence, you can use a toothpick, dental floss stick, bobby pin, needle, or another household item as a fine-edged tool. However, a cotton swab can also do your job if you are unwilling to use something sharp.

Firstly, use the cloth to wipe the outside of the earbuds. Hence, ensure to dampen the cloth with water. After that, you should use another cloth to dry them. Ensure that no liquid should get inside of any openings.

How to Remove Earwax on AirPods:

If earwax gets stuck in the earbuds' speaker hole, you should try grabbing the fine-edged tool or dry cotton swab. You should dig the earwax out carefully. Ensure that you should focus around the speaker edges. Whether you use a sharp object, ensure not to cut yourself or pierce the speaker.

Do you use AirPods Pro? If yes, then remove the silicone tips covering each earbud's speaker. Then, rinse these in water. Besides, you should not add soap or other household essential items. Use a soft cloth to wipe these dry. Ensure that these are dry. As soon as these get dry, reconnect these to the earbuds.

If you are willing to remove the tips, you should pull firmly from the tip base, which is attached to the earbud. Whether you want to reconnect it, you should align the tip with the oval-shaped connectors on the speakers and firmly push it in. After aligning the connectors, it must connect easily with a click.

How to Clean AirPods Case:

Hence, you should first remove the earbuds. After that, wipe the outside of the case with the help of a dry lint-free cloth.

If there are any tougher spots, use alcohol to dampen the cloth, but ensure to dry the spots afterward. Ensure that no moisture should get in the case's holders or the charging port. A soft bristle brush can help you to get rid of debris from the charging port.

How to Clean AirPods Max:

You must not run these under the water. It is better to take the help of a soft, dry, & lint-free cloth. Sometimes, you might expose these to anything which causes stains or other damage. Soaps, shampoos, conditioners, lotions, perfumes, solvents, detergents, acids or acidic foods, insect repellents, sunscreen, oil, or hair dye are a few examples.

  • You should wipe these clean using a cloth dampened with fresh water. After that, use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth to dry it. 
  • Never use these until they are completely dry. 
  • Ensure no liquid should get in the openings. 
  • Remember that you shouldn't use sharp objects or abrasive materials.

How to Clean the Cushions and Headband Of Your AirPods Max:

  • After that, your job is to remove cushions from the ear cups. 
  • While cleaning the headband, hold the device upside down to prevent the liquid from flowing into the attachment point. 
  • Use a lint-free cloth and dip it into the soapy water solution. After that, you should wring out it slightly. Rub the cloth on the cushions slowly for one minute. 
  • Now, you should wipe these clean using a separate cloth dampened with fresh water. 
  • Use a soft cloth to dry the cushions and headband to remove extra moisture. 
  • Lay the device flat to dry for a minimum of one day before reconnecting the cushions and using these again.

How to Clean the Case of AirPods Max:

Use a dry & soft cloth to clean Smart Case. You might dampen the cloth using isopropyl alcohol. After that, you should dry the Smart Case. Remember that you should never use abrasive materials in this case.

How Clean the Case of Your AirPods Pro:

The steps you should follow are as follows:-

  • You must not use abrasive materials in this case. 
  • If you want to avoid damage to the metal contacts, remember not to put anything in the charging ports.

How to Clean Ear Tips of Your AirPods Pro:

  • If water has accumulated in the ear tip, you should use a dry lint-free cloth to remove the ear tip facing downward. 
  • Now, your task is to put off ear tips from every model and rinse them with water. Never use soap in this case. 
  • Using a lint-free cloth allows you to wipe the ear tips. Ensure that these are dry entirely before reconnecting to every earbud. 
  • Tap on the ear tips back on every earbud. 
  • Ear tips come in an oval shape. Therefore, ensure to align these before tapping on them back.

Are These Waterproof?

You must not run these underwater because they are not waterproof. The water resistance relies on the type of device you use. These come with a water-resistance rating of IPX4, while the earlier versions don't come with a water-resistance rating. However, these can handle moisture like a sweaty workout or light rain. Ensure that you should not expose them to water for a long time. In addition, you must not shower or swim with them.

Conclusion:

Whether your iPhone takes a dip, you can try the solutions to save it. If you are willing to get water out of these earbuds, act fast. Then, keep these upsides down in a container full of desiccant packets. After that, you should seal the container & leave it for some hours.

Not only that the wireless charging case too adds to the appeal. However when it comes to anything earbuds or earphones, they get a lot of usage. With usage too comes a lot of dirt. Over time these earbuds build up with wax, dirt and other sorts of grime. Ok yeah it is easy cleaning out the white portion of these earbuds. But what about the black grille portion? If you’re interested in cleaning them out, in this post we’ll be showing you how to clean AirPods & Charging case. If you haven’t thought of cleaning it, then there’s definitely going to be some build up. So without further ado let’s get to cleaning.

Here are some things you’re going to need: 


You will need:

  • A cotton swab
  • Tooth Pick
  • Microfiber cloth

Now to getting started in how to clean AirPods & Charging case:

A micro fiber cloth is great for the outside of your AirPods, but when it comes to the inside, it is better to use a tooth pick or a cotton swab. But whatever use make sure you’re using it with care. You don’t want anything getting damaged or any free cotton fiber getting stuck inside.

Cleaning the Charging Case: 


When it comes to cleaning the charging case, it is the charging ports that tend to get dirty. Before you try anything else, it’s better to use a blow dryer to get out any of the dirt. Whatever you do be gentle as that spot can get damaged easily.

In case you’re in a tough spot and that too literally, you can always head on to your local Apple store for some help.

The new Airpods or Airpods 2 will deliver faster connectivity pairing times. The new Airpods are slated to deliver more talk time and even come with hands free Siri connectivity.

The new Airpods was launched by Apple along with the new iPad Air, iPad mini and a new iMac. Apple launched these new hardware ahead of its video streaming launch. The new Apple streaming service is expected to be launched on March 25.

The new airpods can be ordered from the Apple website or Apple Store app. You can also buy the Airpods 2 from the physical Apple Stores, in the coming week.

Apple to Unveil High-End AirPods

Apple Airpods

AirPods Slated for 2019 Release

According to sources, Apple is planning for the release of high-end AirPods, HomePod and over-ear headphones for as early as 2019. The AirPods are slated to pump up the volume and will also come with noise cancellation and water resistance. When we talk of water resistance, the AirPods will not be suitable for swimming, but essentially to protect it against rain and perspiration.

Apple will be working on increasing the range that the AirPods can work away from an iPhone or an iPad. The AirPods will cost more than the $159 per pair. They are working on a wireless charging case which will also be compatible with the AirPower charger.

The company is also looking at biometric sensors to be added to the AirPods. It could be a heart-rate monitor which could be handy like the Apple Watch and thus expand their base in the health-related field. However, the AirPods that are currently available are slated to be enhanced later this year with a new chip. This will allow hands-free Siri activation.

Features of the AirPods

The cordless AirPod headphones can connect instantly with all your other devices as soon as you put them into your ears.

The AirPod has a W1 chip which allows 5 hours of non-stop listening on a single charge. It also has a charging case which accommodates additional charges and gives more than 24 hours listening time. In case you require quick charge, then put the AirPods in the charging case for just 15 minutes and you will get 3 hours of listening time.

Siri can be activated by double clicking on any of the AirPods, without any need of taking your iPhone out of your pocket.

The AirPods will connect with all the other Apple devices that you have. The AirPods connect with your Apple Watch and iPhone simultaneously. You need to just choose AirPods on your iPad or Mac in case you want to listen on those devices.

With the AirPods, you receive high quality AAC audio. Whenever the user wants to make a call or talk to Siri, then the background noise is cancelled by dual beamforming microphones.

The AirPods will help you hear more clearly in a noisy environment through the iOS 12 operating system which is slated for a launch in the fall.

The AirPods through the iOS 12 can be used for “Live Listen”, which is an assistive hearing technology developed by Apple. This is available on the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with compatible hearing aids or cochlear implants since 2014. The AirPods need to be paired through the Bluetooth on your iOS 12 device.

The AirPods from Apple have raised the bar since you can not only walk around with them in your ears but you can also understand what people are saying more clearly.

In addition to the AirPods, Apple is said to be coming out with a new HomePod and over -ear headphones in early 2019. The headphones will be competing with those from Bose and Sennheiser. These headphones will be a higher-end alternative to the company’s Beats line.
