Just Got AirPods? Here's How to Connect Them to Your Phone

With each new Apple release, the company's products seem to get more and more advanced. Whether it's smartphones with zero buttons, devices that double as a scanner, or offering full magazines at the touch of a button, Apple is truly modernizing the way we stay connected. And one of their more recent (and massively popular) releases are AirPods, or wireless pods that act as headphones. And good news: despite being so high tech, connecting AirPods to your phone is actually incredibly easy.

If you're connecting your AirPods to your phone for the first time, you'll need to make sure that your smartphone is operating at iOS 10 or later. After you have this confirmed, open the pods' case (keep the headphones inside, they don't need to come out yet!) and hold the case directly next to your phone. An image of your pods and its case should pop up on the screen. Tap "Connect," "Done," and that's it! If you're already logged into iCloud, your pods become instantly linked with whatever device is associated with that Apple ID.

From here, all you have to do is throw in your AirPods and select what music you would like to listen to. But want to know what's even cooler? When you remove them from your ears they automatically stop playing. That means no more fiddling to hit the pause button!
