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.
