AirPods communicates using one language. Light flicks. From the color of the light and the blinking, you can differentiate between the various states of your AirPods. What do these colors mean?
In case your pads are in the case and the case blinks amber, this implies that the AirPods are charging. But if the amber light shows with no AirPods inside, then the power in the charging case is less than a full recharge. Green light implies enough charge in the charging case. If your AirPods shows no light, this implies they are dead and recharge is required. White flashing light implies that the AirPods have been reset and are ready to pair while amber flashing light infers an error in the pairing process.
Use your AirPods with non-Apple devices
