You have entered the realm of ultra-realistic sound with the AirPods Max. Listen to music like never before with these stylish over-ear headphones. But the AirPods Max aren’t like other headphones—they don’t have a power button. Because of this, people may not know how to power down their AirPods to save battery life. Never fear! Learn all you need to know about controlling the power of your AirPods Max in this detailed tutorial.
Understanding the “Off” State
For starters, you can’t just press a button to turn off your AirPods Max. They may go into a low-power mode when they’re not in use, which drastically cuts down on battery life.
Two Routes to Power Management
1. Utilizing the Smart Case:
The Smart Case is the simplest method to switch your AirPods Max to a low-power mode. A condition that reduces battery drain can be activated by this situation.
2. Without the Smart Case:
Do not fret if the Smart Case is not at your disposal. If the AirPods are not in use for five minutes without the case, they will go into low-power mode automatically. Once they’ve been out of the Smart Case for 72 hours, they enter an even more power-saving mode.
Tips for Maximizing Battery Life
- Regular Charging: If you want to keep your AirPods Max from going through cycles of deep discharge, charge them periodically.
- Bluetooth Disconnection: If you want to save power, you may stop them from turning on because of Bluetooth or alerts by manually removing them from your smartphone.
- Firmware Updates: If you want your AirPods to work at their best and save power, make sure you update the firmware.
Checking Battery Status
There are a few ways to check the battery life of your AirPods Max:
- On iOS Devices: By connecting your AirPods Max to your iOS device, you can see the remaining battery life in the battery widget.
- On Mac: You can check the battery life by clicking the Bluetooth icon on the menu.
- Auditory Indicator: Upon activation, the headphones emit a tone that serves as a battery life indicator.
Troubleshooting Power Issues
If you’re having trouble with your AirPods Max, try this simple solution:
- Resetting: To silence the device, press and hold the Digital Crown and noise control button for 15 seconds, or until the light turns amber and then white. This will turn the headphones back on.
Do not use your AirPods Max for lengthy periods if you do not intend to:
- Charge to About 50%: For storage over an extended period, this charge level is ideal.
- Store in a Cool, Dry Place: Battery life might be impacted by very hot or very cold weather.
- Keep in mind that you can’t directly switch off AirPods Max. They still need very little power, even while inside the Smart Case, to keep Bluetooth working and for other necessary purposes.
- Only by letting the battery die fully can you turn off your AirPods for long periods. Nevertheless, you should avoid doing this as it might gradually harm the battery.
You have the option to customize the Auto-pause sensitivity in the settings of your AirPods Max on the device you’re using. You may adjust the speed at which they go into low-power mode following removal.
Disable “Hey Siri”:
To further extend the life of your AirPods’ battery, you may disable “Hey Siri” to lower the microphone’s continuous activity.
Check for Firmware Updates:
For optimal battery life and low-power capabilities, make sure you’re using the most recent firmware version for your AirPods.
If you want to get the most out of your AirPods Max—a technological marvel—you need to learn how to control their power. Keep in mind that a conventional “off” switch isn’t as important as intelligent power management. Let your ears be blown away by the cutting-edge technology of your AirPods!
