Is New AirPod Pairing With The Old One?


It won’t be worth buying one AirPod if it doesn’t pair with the other one. You need to check if your existing AirPod is pairing with the new one because there are three versions of AirPod.

  • AirPods (The Original or The First-Generation)
  • AirPods 2 (AirPods 2 or The Second-Generation)
  • AirPods Pro

These 3 versions will not pair with each other. Some reasons behind this are:

The Original AirPods uses a chip which is called the W1.

The Second- Generation AirPods and AirPods Pro use the new proprietary chip called H1.

H1 chip of the new AirPods allows connecting to calls up to 1.5x faster. It provides a more stable wireless connection to Apple devices.

The AirPod Pro and Second-Generation AirPods can invoke Siri handsfree while wearing them into the ear.

But in The First-Generation AirPods,you have to double-tap the earbuds before you talk.

The AirPods (1st Generation) will help you to listen to the audio for up to 3 hours and 1 hour talking on a single charge. 

The AirPods (Second Generation) will provide you up to 2 hours of phone calls and 3 hours of listening.

The AirPods Pro will provide 4.5 hours of listening time on one charge and takes only 5 minutes to get charge the AirPods.

H1 Chip Offers 50% More Talk Time Than W1 Chip.

For your better understanding. I am showing you :-

The differences between AirPods (The First-Generation), AirPods 2 (The Second-Generation), and AirPods Pro.

Hey!! Wait!!! Think Again. I would like to suggest you think again if it is really lost before purchasing the new one. Maybe you can find it.

How Can You Find Only One AirPod?

I’ll let you know how you can find only one AirPod.


If your AirPods are separated in different places, you can see only one location at a time.

Need To Do:


At first, you need to find 1st AirPod, which is showing on your map.


Then put the 1st AirPod into the charging device.


Then reload the map and find the other one.

Here the location of the AirPod which is already in the case will not show on the map. So you can easily find the lost one.

If you are unable to find it. Already I have discussed with you “How can buy one AirPod.” You can buy one by following those steps.

How To Set Up Your Replaced AirPods?

Did you get your replaced AirPods? Great. Congratulations!! Now a question may arise- “How to set up the new one?

Let’s Know The Steps:


For the very first time, you need to put both AirPods in the charging case.


Then, open the lid and check the status light if it is flashing amber or not.


If it is flashing amber, then press and hold the set-up button for a few seconds. The set-up button you will find on the back of the case. Now the status light should be flashing white


Go to the Home Screen on your Apple device.


It’s time to open the case-with inside the AirPods and hold it next to the Apple device.

Facing Problem???


The status light of your case is not flashing white? Then my suggestion is to connect the case with power or charge. It may need to be charged. Close the lid and wait for 20 minutes.


After 20 minutes, again open the lid. Press and hold the set-up button once again for some seconds. (Hope this time it is flashing white)


Suppose it is not flashing white. You should contact the service provider as soon as possible.
