Check AirPods Battery Life Straight from Apple Watch without Pulling Out Your iPhone

If you're anything like me, then you probably have this odd habit of checking battery life on all your wares from time to time. I'm sure AirPods is one of those devices. And today, we'll highlight that you can check AirPods battery life straight from your Apple Watch. It's a fairly simple process and something which you will find super useful.

Step 1. Make sure your AirPods are connected to your iPhone or Apple Watch. If they are inside their case and charging then this method won't work.

Step 2. Once your AirPods are connected with your iPhone or Apple Watch, bring up the Control Center on your Apple Watch by sliding up from the bottom of the display.

Step 3. Now tap on the Apple Watch battery percentage.

Step 4. Alongside your Apple Watch battery, you'll also get a handy indicator showing you the battery life of your AirPods too.

While this feature is great and all, I really wish there was a proper percentage number showing the amount of battery left for both earbuds. With that being said, it would have been if there was some way to check your iPhone battery from the Apple Watch as well. The chore of pulling out your iPhone every single time just to see how much battery you have remaining is something which you can do right from your wrist. But since this is Apple we are dealing with, then we have to face these omissions on a daily basis.

But hey, who knows that we might actually end up seeing the feature in the next software update from Apple some time later this year. If that happens, a lot of users are going to be happy.
