Make them like new. So you can reset some AirPods Max — 2022

The fact of restoring the factory settings of a device is something that must be internalized in all users. Even some 'simple' headphones like the AirPods Max have this type of possibility. In this article we tell you how you can reset the settings of some AirPods Max.

When should AirPods Max be reset?

AirPods Max, like any other technological device, can have faults. These will make the user experience look muddy, something that obviously nobody wants to suffer. Most of the problems that can occur are related to the software, such as failures when pairing with a device or distortion in sound or microphone pickup. This is undoubtedly the solution that Apple will give you before starting other repair processes.

But this operation is not only limited to the technical failures of the AirPods. If you plan to sell them to someone else on the second-hand market, you should know that you always have to factory restore them. This is because the headphones are linked to your Apple ID and that is why in no case can you sell it with this active link, both for security reasons and for the convenience of the buyer. As is logical, when you are going to send them to be repaired, you must also deliver them 'clean' with this system, leaving the least information of yours in them.

If the restart has not finished working, you will have to do a return to the factory settings or restore. In this way they will be as if you had taken them out of the box with everything configured by default. This is the best way to solve all problems, since if any process has been constantly in a loop, this will end up solving it. The main problem that can be found obviously is that you will be forced to do the first configuration and to link it with all the devices in your ecosystem. But without a doubt it is worth making this 'sacrifice' in exchange for having AirPods Max working correctly.

To restore them, you simply have to charge them for a few minutes so that they are not with a 0 or very low charge. Once you have made the previous load you will have to carry out the following steps:

  • Hold down the noise control button.
  • At the same time press the digital crown.
  • You will see how the bottom LED flashes amber. Don't stop pressing the buttons.
  • As soon as the white LED appears, you can remove your fingers from the buttons.

From this moment on, the AirPods Max will be fully restored and you will be able to reconnect them to your iPhone, iPad or Mac. As we have mentioned, this connection will be made like the first one you made when you took the AirPods out of the box. This will end up solving all the problems you have or simply to be able to sell them in a comfortable way.
