Checking the battery life of your AirPods on a Windows 10 or Windows 11 PC involves using the built-in Bluetooth settings.
Here are the steps:
Checking AirPods Battery Life on Windows 10/11:
- Ensure Bluetooth is Enabled:
- Make sure Bluetooth is turned on on your Windows 10/11 PC. You can usually find the Bluetooth toggle in the system tray or in the Settings app.
- Connect AirPods to Windows PC:
- Pair your AirPods with your Windows PC if you haven’t already. Go to the Bluetooth settings and select your AirPods to establish a connection.
- Access Bluetooth Settings:
- Right-click on the Bluetooth icon in the system tray (bottom-right corner of the screen) and select “Go to Settings” or open “Settings” from the Start menu and go to “Devices” and then “Bluetooth & other devices.”
- Check AirPods Battery Level:
- In the Bluetooth settings, you should see a list of connected devices. Find your AirPods in the list.
- Click on your AirPods to expand the details.
- The battery level of your AirPods should be displayed.
Please note that as of my last knowledge update in January 2022, Windows support for showing the battery level of AirPods or other Bluetooth devices may vary based on your PC’s Bluetooth hardware and drivers. If you’re having trouble viewing the battery level, make sure that your Bluetooth drivers are up to date. You can check the manufacturer’s website for your PC or Bluetooth adapter for the latest drivers.
Additionally, Microsoft may introduce new features or improvements in future updates to Windows 10 or Windows 11, so it’s a good idea to check for updates and review any changes in the Bluetooth settings.
