Before getting started, make sure that your AirPods are charged and that your MacBook is running the latest version of macOS.

Step 1: Turn on your AirPods

In the Bluetooth settings, you will see a list of available devices. Look for your AirPods in the list and click on the “Connect” button next to them.
