There are several things you can do to fix your AirPods or AirPods Pro that are flashing white. The quickest option is to restart your device, as well as your AirPods.
If that doesn’t work, then make sure the AirPods are fully charged. If so, check to see if they are updated with the latest software.
Your next step is to charge your iPhone and ensure it is also updated with the latest software. Check that your iPhone’s Bluetooth is turned on and then open up the AirPods and wait for the animation of the headphones to show on your phone’s screen.
Another option is to go into your device’s Bluetooth setting and select to forget the AirPods or AirPods Pro. Then completely shut down your device.
Hold the button on the back of the AirPod’s charging case until the light turns amber in color and flashes three times. This will cause the AirPods to factory reset.
Perform a hard rest on your device by either holding down the home button and power button at the same time (depending on your device, you may have to hold down the volume button and power button simultaneously to do a hard reset).
Once your device is back up, open the AirPod’s charging case and pair the headphones to your device.
If, after all that, the AirPods are still flashing white but not connecting, reach out to Apple Support for further assistance. Apple Support can be reached at their toll-free 1800 number or by visiting the Apple Support App.

What does flashing white mean on Airpods?
AirPods and AirPods Pro have limited ability to communicate, so they rely on their LED light to let you know what is happening.
When that light is flashing white, that means they are ready to be paired with your device, such as your iPhone or iPad.
A green light means the case or the AirPods are completely charged, while an amber light shows that the case or the AirPods are currently charging.
If, however, the amber light is flashing, then that means the AirPods or AirPods Pro are experiencing an error and cannot recover without intervention.
Why won’t my Airpods flash white?
If your Airpods or AirPods Pro won’t flash white, unfortunately, you won’t be able to pair them to your device. Thankfully, there are a few tricks you can try to get your Airpods to flash white.
Ensure the AirPods are completely charged and then close the lid to their case. Wait about 15 seconds before opening the lid. This should cause the AirPods light to flash white.
If it doesn’t press and hold its setup button until the LED light starts to flash white.
If the light still won’t flash, hold down the setup button on the AirPods or AirPods Pro case until the light starts to flash amber. It should flash amber three times before flashing white.
Once the light starts to flash white, pair them with your device by going into the Bluetooth setting on your device, locating your AirPods or AirPods Pro on the Bluetooth page, and then click on Connect.
