Connecting AirPods Through iCloud

Everyone knows AirPods is for the users of the iOS device. In case you connected AirPods to use with the iOS device which is signed in to the “iCloud Account,” this means you are ready to use AirPods on MacBook or another system which is also signed in to the “iCloud Account.

You will also get many other options which show the remaining battery percentage on the MacBook screen.

Connecting AirPods without using iCloud

In case you had not started to use AirPods on the iPhone gadget, then starts’ using the AirPods by following the easiest way here and it is not compulsory that the AirPods should be kept outside from its charging case.
