Signs You Need Look Out For To Charge Your AirPods

AirPods are essential for many Apple device users, especially after the WFH culture gained popularity. However, many a time, people report, “Why are my AirPods Flashing Orange?” If you’re facing the same issue with your AirPods, there’s a problem that needs fixing. But don’t worry! The fix is pretty simple.

We are all aware that the AirPods case contains an LED light indicator that effectively tells us how long the Case and the AirPods will last on their respective batteries. But is it the only purpose the LED light is meant to serve? Actually, the AirPods case’s light indicator may flash in various colors, each of which has a distinct message.

If your AirPods Case displays a steady orange light when the AirPods are not within the Case, this indicates insufficient power in the Case to fully charge your AirPods.

How Can You See Your AirPod’s Battery Percentage?

Here’s how to tell if your AirPods are completely charged or need to be recharged by checking the battery on your iPhone.

  1. Hold the open AirPods case next to your unlocked iPhone while keeping your AirPods inside.
  2. Your AirPods’ and their charging Case’s battery life will be displayed on the screen.
  3. A little black lightning bolt may be seen next to the battery symbol. This denotes that charging is active. For example, the AirPods are charging in the screenshot above, but the Case isn’t.

Recharge the Case and the AirPods

If the AirPods still aren’t charged after being in the Case for some time, it simply implies that the Case’s battery is dead. In that situation, you must charge both your AirPods and the Case. Therefore, just place the AirPods inside the Case and plug the Case into a charger so that both devices charge up at once.

You may try to connect the AirPods with any of the devices you wish to use them with after it’s finished and they are fully charged.

Battery Life

You receive a notification on your iPhone or iPad screen when the battery power of your AirPods is low. For example, you are notified when the charge has 20, 10, and 5 percent left.

When the battery is low, both or one of the AirPods emits a tone. When the battery is at 10% charge, you hear the tone once and again just before the AirPods shut off.

You can use Siri to monitor how well your AirPods and Case are charging without ever opening the case. However, be careful to listen closely and ask Siri again if the response sounds odd since it is possible that Siri can misinterpret and tell you how much phone battery you have in place of what you asked for.

You just need to ask Siri, “How much battery do my AirPods have?” then Siri will respond with the status of both batteries.


Anyone with an AirBuds Pro will attest to how wonderful they are. Unfortunately, airPods are not impervious to all problems, either. Fortunately, they include an indicator light to let you know when anything is wrong.

However, if you don’t know what this light represents, it might be perplexing when its color changes.
