Why Is My AirPods Case Flashing Blue?
The AirPods case is not supposed to flash blue. However, you may be confusing it for a white light.
A flashing white light on a set of wireless earbuds can mean many things. The light can mean that the earbuds are connected to the iPhone, and they have a healthy connection with the unit. This situation may be true if the blue light you see is constant.
However, a pulsing white light may indicate that you are still in pairing mode, and you need to complete the process of pairing your buds to the device you want to use them with.
In some cases, a white light means your connection is unstable. You might just be too far away from the Bluetooth source, and it’s causing your connection to go in and out. You can easily rectify that by getting much closer to the source.
Are Real AirPods Supposed to Flash Blue?
Genuine AirPods manufactured by the Apple company do not emit blue lights of any kind. Therefore, you have most likely purchased a knock-off product if you see a blue light flashing on the device.
Many people have purchased such products only to find out that they did not own genuine Apple products. They might look to be the same, but they are not if they flash a blue light.
Where Is the AirPods Pro Status Light?
Your status light will be in one of two places on a pair of AirPods Pro. It will most likely be on the front of your charging case.
The status light is on top of the charging case and in between the earbuds on some older units. It will tell you everything you need to know about your AirPods Pro and its charging and pairing status.
Does a Blue Light Always Mean AirPods Are Fake?
A blue light always means that your AirPods are not official. Many sellers sell knock-off products that look like AirPods and AirPods Pro, but Apple didn’t make them.
Some may have an acceptable quality, but it’s not as high-quality as that of bona fide Apple devices.
Apple did not create any AirPods devices or cases that blink, show, or have blue lights. Blue is not a part of the indicator light configuration.

What to Do if My AirPods Flash Blue
If your AirPods flash blue, you will know that you have purchased a product that Apple did not create. You can try to return your “AirPods” to the seller if you still have the receipt. Otherwise, you can keep them and try to enjoy them as much as you can.
Are the AirPods Supposed to Flash Red?
Unfortunately, your AirPods are not Apple products if they flash red, either. Apple did not add that color to the indicator options for the AirPods. If you see it on your earbuds, you can be 100 percent certain that you do not have an Apple AirPods product.

What Colors Are AirPods Supposed to Flash?
Authentic Apple AirPods products flash only three colors. These colors are white, amber, and green. No other colors come from the AirPods or AirPods Pro devices.
The white light will come on when your AirPods are in pairing mode. To get to pairing mode, you will press the pairing button on the case.
The pairing button is on the back of it. You can then pair AirPods with the device of your choice. The light will go off once you make the connection successfully. An amber light will flash if you experience a pairing issue.
Your AirPods are not fully charged if you see an amber light while they are in the case. The status indicator lets you know that they’re not fully charged, but the charger is charging them for you. An amber light when the AirPods are not in the case means that you need to charge the AirPods case.
You’ll see a green light in one of three instances, and it will mean something good every time. A green light when your AirPods are in the case means that the AirPods and the case are fully charged. A green light when the AirPods are out of the case means that the case is fully charged.
A green light when you have your unit connected to a power source means the AirPods case has a full charge, and it’s okay to remove the power source when you’re ready.
What If I Don’t See a Color on My AirPods Pro?
Your AirPods or AirPods Pro should always have a status light on them. If you do not see a status light at all, it means that you’ve let your battery run down all the way.
You’ll have to connect the AirPods to a charger or put them back into their wireless charging case for a while before you see those beautiful status indicator lights again.
