How To Reset Your Airpods Before Selling

Share This:

Are you looking to sell your AirPods? Whether it’s an upgrade to a newer model or you simply need the cash, here are some tips to help you clear your AirPods for the sale.

First and foremost, resetting your AirPods is essential for anyone who wants to buy them. Resetting not only clears out any personal data that may be stored on your AirPods but also removes any link between them and your Apple ID. Once reset, they will no longer automatically recognize any of the devices linked to your iCloud account. To reset, simply put both AirPods in their case, then press and hold the setup button located on the back of the case until the light flashes white.

It’s also important to make sure that your AirPods are in good condition before selling them. Make sure that they are clean and have no damage such as cracks or dents. If there is any visible damage, it’s important to point this out to potential buyers so they can decide if this is something they are comfortable with before buying.

Lastly, you’ll want to make sure all of the accessories included with the AirPods are included in the sale. This includes their charging case, charger cable, and any other accompanying items such as ear tips or stickers that may have come with them.

Following these simple steps will help ensure that your AirPods are ready for sale! Good luck!

Does Factory Reset Remove AirPods from iCloud?

Yes, factory resetting your AirPods will remove them from your iCloud account. When you reset your AirPods all the settings and configurations associated with them are deleted, including any iCloud information that was previously linked to them. After the reset, you’ll have to pair them again with any of your Apple devices in order to use them.

Removing Previous Owner from AirPods

In order to remove the previous owner from your AirPods, you will need to follow these steps:
1. Go to the Devices tab in the Bluetooth settings of the device that was previously connected to your AirPods.
2. Select your AirPods from the list of paired devices.
3. Swipe down to the bottom of the page and select “Remove This Device”.
4. If you are not within Bluetooth range of the device that was previously paired with your AirPods, then you will need to reset them before you can set them up as new. To do this, follow these same steps again.

Can AirPods Be Reset or Erased?

Yes, AirPods can be erased. To do this, you must first place your AirPods in their case and close the lid. Wait for 30 seconds, then open the lid. On your iOS device, go to Settings -> Bluetooth and tap the circled “i” icon next to your AirPods. Tap Forget This Device, and tap again to confirm. This will erase all pairing informaton from your AirPods so they can be set up with a new device.
