How To Reset Your Airpods To Sell

Share This:

Are you looking to sell your AirPods? Transferring ownership of your AirPods is possible, but it requires a few steps. In this blog post, we’ll explain how you can reset your AirPods and remove them from your Apple ID so that the new owners can connect them to their devices.

First, you’ll need to perform a factory reset on your AirPods. This will erase all settings and data associated with the headphones. To do this, press and hold the button on the back of the charging case until you hear a chime. Then open the lid of the case with your AirPods inside, then press and hold the button again until you hear another chime. This will indicate that your AirPods have been reset.

Next, you’ll need to forget your AirPods from your phone or another device. To do this, go into Bluetooth settings and look for “My Devices” or “Connected Devices” and select “Forget Device” next to your AirPods. Once they have been forgotten, they will no longer show up in Bluetooth settings or be connected to any of your devices.

Finally, you’ll need to remove your Apple ID from the AirPods so that they are ready for their new owner. To do this, open Settings on an iPhone or iPad with iOS 10 or later and tap into iCloud > Find My iPhone > My Devices > Select Your Device > Remove Device From Account (this step may be slightly different depending on which device you are using). Once this is complete, the new owner will be able to pair their device with their newly acquired AirPods!

We hope this guide has helped explain how to transfer ownership of your AirPods by performing a factory reset and removing them from your Apple ID account! Good luck!

Changing Ownership of AirPods

To change the ownership of your AirPods, you need to perform a factory reset. To do this, press and hold the setup button on the back of each AirPod for about 15 seconds or until you hear an audible chime. This will reset the AirPods to their original settings.

Once the reset is complete, you need to forget the AirPods from your phone by going into Bluetooth settings and selecting “forget this device”. You will also need to remove your Apple ID from them by entering your iCloud password when prompted on the setup screen.

Once all these steps are completed, your AirPods will be ready for the new owner to connect their device and start using them.

Can AirPods Be Tracked After Resetting?

Unfortunately, AirPods cannot be tracked if they have been reset. Apple’s ‘Find My AirPods’ feature allows users to locate their lost AirPods if they are still connected to the user’s iCloud account, but this is not possible if the AirPods have been reset. Resetting AirPods will remove them from the user’s iCloud account and make them impossible to track.

Removing an Apple ID From AirPods Pro

To remove someone’s Apple ID from AirPods Pro, open the Find My app on your device. Tap the Devices tab and select the AirPods Pro that you want to remove. Swipe up on the handle for the AirPods Pro and tap Remove This Device. You will then be prompted to confirm. Once you tap Remove, the AirPods Pro will be removed from that Apple ID and no longer associated with it.

Forcing Deletion of an Apple ID from AirPods

To force delete an Apple ID from your AirPods, first put your AirPods in their case and close the lid. Wait 30 seconds, then open the lid. On your iOS device, go to Settings -> Bluetooth and tap the circled “i” icon next to your AirPods. Then tap Forget This Device, and tap again to confirm. This will remove any stored authentication information for that Apple ID from the AirPods.
