Here’s how to charge your Apple AirPods. You can charge your AirPods two different ways.
Option 1: Put your AirPods in the case and connect your case to a Lightning cable. Your AirPods and your case will charge simultaneously.
And you cannot charge your AirPods without the case, but you can charge the case without the AirPods. When you’re not plugged in, the case recharges your AirPods while you’re on the move.
Option 2: You can also charge your AirPods wirelessly. Simply place the AirPod case onto a Qi charger. This is bought separately.
Wireless charging comes standard for AirPods Pro but not the regular AirPods. Now your AirPods are charged and ready to use.
