Resetting Your AirPods Max
Apple AirPods Max does not have a power button on the back, unlike the AirPods Pro. You can’t power cycle them as you would with an Apple device. Resetting the AirPods Max is your best option if you are experiencing connectivity issues or other problems.

A reboot does not always fix all glitches. If the first option doesn’t work, then you should try the AirPods reset.
You can reboot your AirPods Max by holding down the Digital Crown button and the Noise control button for between 5 and 7 seconds until the status light flashes amber.
After rebooting, your AirPods Max should be repairable.
Your iCloud account can be used to unpair the AirPods Max.
The factory setting is achieved by holding down the Noise Control button, Digital Crown, and the Digital Crown for at least 15 seconds. The status light will change from flashing amber into flashing white.
You should be able to re pair the new device to your iOS device after you have reset it.

When Should You Reset Your Airpods?
AirPods are not designed to be reset for every problem. Resetting your AirPods is a good idea for sticky situations. Resetting your AirPods will relieve you of the frustration and wasted time trying to fix it.
These are the most common problems that can be solved with a simple reset.
Syncing Problem: The AirPods charging case should automatically pair to the nearest device when the lid is opened. Sometimes they might not sync, despite repeated attempts.
Charging Problem: After charging your device for a few minutes, the power does not come on. This could be a problem with your AirPods’ power management firmware.
Batteries: Are your AirPods dying too quickly because of a battery issue? This could be due to the battery management or the small battery inside the AirPod stem.
Apple products have a high resale price. We often sell older models to make way for newer models. Before you sell your AirPods, unpair them from iCloud. This will allow you to unpair all of your AirPods, preventing confusion when you pair AirPods with the same name.
You can also remove your AirPods’ iCloud accounts and reset them before you sell them. This prevents anyone buying them from having access to your iCloud. It gives the AirPods a fresh start to their new journey with their new owner.
Resetting your AirPods can be as easy as pairing them. However, even if you pair your AirPods to the same Bluetooth device (your iPhone), they can still be reset to fix problems. We hope that our guide can help you learn more ways to reset your AirPods.
