How Do I Connect My Airpods to a Different Apple ID?
If you want to use your AirPods with a different Apple ID, you can do so by unpairing them from your current iPhone and then pairing them to the new iPhone using the new Apple ID. This process is simple and only takes a few steps.
First, make sure that your AirPods are in their charging case and that the case is charged.
Then, on your current iPhone, go to Settings > Bluetooth and find the listing for your AirPods. Tap on the “i” next to it and then tap “Forget This Device.” Next, open the lid of the charging case and hold it close to your new iPhone.
A popup should appear on the screen asking if you’d like to connect the two devices; tap “Connect.” Your AirPods will now be paired with your new iPhone using the new Apple ID.
How to Switch Airpods to a Different Apple Id?
If you own multiple Apple products, you may find yourself wanting to use different sets of AirPods with each device. Maybe you want to keep your work and personal AirPods separate, or maybe you want to share your AirPods with family members who also have Apple devices. Whatever the reason, it’s easy to switch your AirPods between different Apple IDs.
Here’s how: Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad. Tap “Bluetooth.”
Find the listing for your AirPods in the Devices section and tap the (i) icon next to it. Tap “Forget This Device” and confirm when prompted. Now go back to Settings and tap “iCloud.”
Tap “Sign Out” at the bottom of the screen. Enter your password if prompted and then tap “Turn Off.” Once iCloud is turned off, go back to Settings and tap “Bluetooth” again.
Find your AirPods in the list of devices and tap the (i) icon next to them. Tap “Connect” and then enter the new Apple ID that you want to use with these AirPods when prompted. You may be asked to enter a verification code; if so, follow the instructions onscreen to complete verification.
And that’s all there is to it! Now you can easily switch between using different Apple IDs with your AirPods without having to factory reset them each time.
If you have multiple Apple IDs, you can switch between them and use different iCloud features with each one. You can also connect your AirPods to a different Apple ID than the one you use with your iPhone.
