No user wants to spend their time troubleshooting technical issues. But if you have a pair of AirPods or wireless BeatsX, you might have to do just that sooner rather than later. Since they aren’t as universally compatible as wired earbuds, there are some things that can go wrong when connecting them to your Mac computer. In this post, we will show you several ways to fix AirPods that won’t connect to Mac or other devices.
