The most common reason for your AirPods overheating is exposure to high temperatures. This can occur if you leave them in direct sunlight for an extended period of time, or if you leave them in a car or oher area that is particularly hot for long periods of time. Additionally, hardware issues can cause your AirPods to overheat as well. This can include a faulty charging system or damaged wiring in your AirPods, which can result in higher voltage being supplied than necessary and thus cause an increase in temperature.

Another potential issue when it comes to overheating is built-up dust and magnet currents between the earbuds and charger. If these magnet currents become too powerful, they can cause your AirPods to become very hot very quickly.

If your AirPods case is becoming too hot, the first step is to remove it from the charger immediately. Wait a few seconds until it has cooled down before opening up the lid and taking out the earbuds. After doing this, put them back into the case and close the lid again for 10 seconds before putting it back on the charger.

It’s also important to remember that when charging your AirPods with an external battery pack or power bank, make sure that it’s rated for use with Apple devices or else you may risk damaging both the power bank and your AirPods due to overheating caused by mismatched voltages or amperages.

If you find that none of these solutions seem to work for you, you may want to consider contacting Apple Support as thee may be an underlying hardware issue with either the earbuds or their charging system that needs addressing by a professional technician.

Overall, while having your AirPods get too hot isn’t ideal, it doesn’t have to be a major issue if you take proper care of them and keep an eye out for any potential problems that could arise from using them in extreme temperatures or environments where dust buildup may occur more often than not. With a few simple steps outlined above you should be able to keep both your earbuds and their case cool and functioning properly at all times!
