Putting your AirPods back in their case resets the Bluetooth connection with your iPhone and fixes any minor issue that may be keeping the microphone from working. Simply place the AirPods back in the case for roughly 30 seconds and take them out again. Once they are connected to your iPhone, check if the microphone is working. This is the easiest way to fix any minor issue with your AirPods.

Check the Microphone settings on your iPhone

If you’re experiencing the microphone issue with just one AirPod, the problem may lie with the microphone settings. You can specify which AirPod microphone should be in use. Usually, your iPhone switches the microphone by default, depending on the AirPod you’re using, but you may have changed this setting and forgotten about it. Follow the steps listed below to set it back to default.

Step 1: Go to Settings and select Bluetooth.

It is quite common for the microphone on your AirPods to get clogged by dirt. The microphones are located at the end of the stems on your AirPods. You can use a cotton swab to clean the dirt or wipe it with a microfiber cloth. Blow on the microphone to remove any small dust particles and check if they’re working again.

Forget and Re-pair your AirPods

If you’ve tried all of the methods mentioned above and the microphone of your AirPods still isn’t working, it may be due to a corrupted connection to your iPhone. You can try ‘forgetting’ the AirPods and pairing them again. Just follow these easy steps.
