Using your AirPods with Windows

Daniel asks if you can use your AirPods with your iThings and your Windows PC at the same time. Yes, you can. Strictly not at the same time, but they do work. You place them in the carrying case (did I mention you always put them in the carrying case?) and hold the button on the back of the case for seven seconds. Now they are discoverable and you can pair them from Windows. Your iThings will not forget your AirPods and you can pull them over.

However, if you take out an AirPod while connected to Windows, it may not continue to play when you put it back in your ear. I had to put them back in the carrying case (did I mention ...) and then open the case to make them connect again. So, it does kinda work. But I am not sure I like it. Apple would say you should buy more mThings instead of Windows PCs. :-)
