How do I know if my AirPod is left or right?
If you decide to use only one AirPod, then that one will be the microphone.
But you can set the Microphone to be “Always Left AirPod” or “Always Right AirPod.” If you select one of those options, then that AirPod will be the microphone even if you remove it from your ear or put it back in the case.
How do you know which AirPod goes in which ear?
Both of the AirPods have letters on the bottom of the stem(L and R) that tell you which ear they go into. The one with the R goes into your right ear.
How do I know if I have AirPods 1 or 2?
There is no way to tell the difference between them unless you look at the inside. AirPods 1 use the W1 chip, while the AirPods 2 use the H1 chip. The new H1 chip has a faster Bluetooth connectivity when paired with Apple devices.
Can I buy a left AirPod?
You can buy a replacement for a left or right AirPod or the Charging Case. Your replacement will be new.
