I received a replacement air pod and can not connect to my phone
Hey there, Drewniess,
Thanks for visiting the Apple Support Communities! We understand you need help pairing your replacement AirPod to your iPhone. We are happy to help!
The steps to set up a replacement AirPod can be found in the Apple Support article Set up your replacement AirPods or charging case - Apple Support. We see that you have gotten to the communities from this article. If you have not already, follow the steps to forget the AirPods, then using both the replacement AirPod and your working original AirPod, follow the steps to set them up.
Don't hesitate to let us know if you've tried those steps and still cannot set up the replacement. If you do get back in touch, please let us know at what point in the set up you have an issue, and exactly what happens. If you get any error messages, please also provide it exactly as it appears.
Thank you for your help and we are all set!
Thanks for the update, Drewniess!
We're happy to hear everything worked out.
