If you’re using an older model from 2011 or earlier, then you won’t be able to use the Bluetooth option for this process. Instead, you’ll need to use Apple’s “Airport” method which is outlined below:

Step 1: Make sure that both of your AirPods are charged before starting this process. You’ll also need the latest version of macOS Sierra or El Capitan installed on your computer.
Step 2: Click on the Apple logo at the top left corner of your screen and click System Preferences. From here, select “Network”. Look for an option called Airport and make sure that it is toggled on. This will help create an Internet connection between your Mac and iPod through a wireless service specifically designed by Apple for these types of devices over long distances without any outside interference.
Step 3: If you see a pull-down option under Airport that says “Configure”, double click on it and select the Airport tab. Now, select your AirPods from the list of available connections within macOS and then choose “Create New Network” to add an additional security feature such as a password or personal key. This will ensure that no one accidentally connects their device to your Mac wirelessly without permission.
Step 4: Look for a brand new Internet connection labelled with either “Airpods” or whatever network name you decided to give it in the sidebar of your Mac’s active Internet connections and click on it so it turns blue. You’ll be able to find this under the left-hand column once you’ve selected it from the list.
Step 5: Click on the Airport tab once again and select your Airpods or newly created network within macOS before clicking “Connect”. If everything worked correctly, the status of the device within Finder will change from “Looking” to “Connected”.
