After pairing AirPods with your iPhone, iCloud will do the job of pairing pods by automatically syncing the pairing with your iPad; make sure that your iPad is signed into the same iCloud account and running iOS 10.

You should not be worried about pairing AirPods with your Mac as they are already paired with your iPhone/iPad; all credit goes to iCloud that syncs the pairing to any Mac computer enabled by macOS Sierra.

How to Pair your AirPods with Apple TV (With Siri & Without Siri)

A Reddit user bd7349 claimed that you can quickly pair your AirPods with Apple TV by using the Siri button on Siri remote. If you have connected AirPods, you can switch audio without any extra effort. Note that it is not a beta feature; it purportedly works in tvOS 10.

But things are not that easy. Once you send a command to Siri to ‘Connect to my AirPods’, Siri may direct you to the Settings app. Though Reddit user claims that your AirPods should connect and start playing audio without performing any further steps, it is found that users have to take a few more steps after getting at the Settings app. Unlike the claim, you cannot connect your AirPods with Apple TV instantly, and hence, you need to perform a workaround which is quite useful for you.

How to Use Siri to Pair AirPods to Apple TV

Step #1: Open Settings on Apple TV.

Step #2: Launch Remotes & Devices, and then Bluetooth.

Step #3: Locate AirPods from the list but you are not supposed to tap on them.

Step #4: Here, press and hold the Menu button to get back to Home screen.

This is an important step; remember that you must not use back button to back out step by step. You have to exit Settings from AirPods screen.

From now on, when you send a command to Siri to pair your AirPods, Siri will take you directly to the AirPods connection screen in Settings app.

This happens because Siri pilots to whatever the last screen you have used in Settings app. This means you need to save this place by pressing and holding Menu button to exit Settings.

Now touch and hold the pairing button on the back of the case.

Step #2: Open Settings on Apple TV.

Step #3: Launch Remotes & Devices, and then Bluetooth.

Step #4: Tap on AirPods from the list.
