How to Factory Reset AirPods Pro & Beats Fit Pro

With the recent introduction of Beats Fit Pro and a rumored new version of AirPods Pro on the horizon, you might be wondering what to do with your previous-generation earbuds—you can’t just hand them off to a friend or colleague when they are already synced with all of your devices. And even if you are sticking with your existing pair for a little while longer, resetting them now and then is a good idea since they can sometimes get buggy. If you’ve never done it, resetting them isn’t difficult, though (steps below).

Resetting your AirPods Pro with an iPhone or iPad

  1. Put your AirPods Pro in their charging case with the lid closed.
  2. Wait at least 30 seconds and then open the lid.
  3. Go to SETTINGS > BLUETOOTH on your iPhone or iPad and tap the circular blue “i” icon next to your AirPods Pro. (Note: If you don't see your AirPods Pro in Settings > Bluetooth, skip to the next step.) 
  4. Select FORGET THIS DEVICE, and then a second time to confirm.
  5. With your case’s lid open, press and hold the button on the back for about 15 seconds, or until the status light blinks orange, then white.



Resetting your AirPods Pro with an Android phone


Follow the first two steps above, and then:

  1. Go to SETTINGS > CONNECTED DEVICES, then hit the cog icon next to your AirPods.
  2. Select FORGET and then FORGET DEVICE.

Resetting your Beats Fit Pro with an iPhone, iPad or Android Device

  1. Place earbuds in the charging case and leave open.
  2. Press and hold the system button on the case for 15 seconds or until the LED indicator light flashes red and white.
