AirPods part deux
After the tech support session with Apple an a few days with a cheap Chinese Bluetooth earbud set I reached a conclusion. I needed to figure this one out.
I cleaned the AirPods with some alcohol making them usable by someone else. I then passed them to my wife. She doesn’t have an Apple Watch, no Bluetooth conflict.[link]
Fortunately, eBay had sent me a £5 voucher so I looked for AirPods on there. A few minutes searching an a boxed Apple set were available at £22.
Deal. The new ones arrived. The serial number appeared on the device. No conflicts.
I am suspicious my old ones were dodgy Chinese copies. Maybe.
Finding bargains in the Apple ecosystem is possible.
