Last updated:

The recently launched i12 TWS Airpods may be the most affordable alternative to the popular Apple AirPods so far. Adapt’s advanced True Wireless Stereo (TWS) technology that they have inside, and in addition to having the left and right channels separately, are points that add power to this new product. But for those who are using these Bluetooth headsets for the first time, they should have no idea how they work, so the next question goes into the world: how to use the i12 TWS Airpods? Well, don’t worry, here is a special operating instruction on how to use these earphones, and we’ll show it to you in this i12 TWS Manual.

i12 TWS Manual: How to turn on or off the i12 TWS?

  • Turn on: The two i12 TWS headphones will automatically turn on and pair after removing them from the charging case.
  • Turn off: Press and hold the back of the sensor for 10 to 20 seconds. You will hear a beep indicating that the earphone has turned off.

Note: If two earphones have not been paired with each other, please delete the paired information from the earphones, then long-press the power button of both earphones for 5 to 10 seconds to enter pairing mode; the left earbuds will blink blue and the red LED on the right earbuds will turn off when paired successfully. It’s worth noting that the headphones will turn off if they can’t sync within 5 minutes.

In case the paired information needs to be deleted, it is done as follows: In pairing mode, press the back of the earphone on the sensor until the LED light turns red.

i12 TWS Manual: How to charge i12 TWS?

I12 TWS Headphone charging

Put the headphones in the slot of the charging case, and then turn on the charging case. The LED indicator will flash red and turn off after a full charge.

Charging the battery box (charging case)

When charging the battery box with a USB cable, the LED indicator will light yellow and green. If the LED blinks 2 times it means your battery is 50% full, if it blinks 3 times it means it is 75% charged and if it blinks 4 times it means it is 100% full.

Troubleshooting

Q.1 How to fix/change the call option due to accidental tapping on the left earphone?

Go to your Bluetooth settings and turn off the phone control option. So it only has access to media. Go to your Bluetooth settings and turn off the phone control option. However, you will have to sacrifice the complete tap control.

Q. What if only one earphone is working and the other one is not connecting?

The best way to check if both earphones don’t have any hardware fault is that when both earphones are connected to the charging box they will have the Red LED light. If there’s only one light blinking this means that only one earphone is connected. Here are some solutions to connect the other one as well:

Solution no.1: Put them back in the case. Take them out at the same time and wait for them to be paired. Wait for at least 20 to 30 seconds.

Solution no.2: Try pressing the earphone which is not working for 3-5 sec. If nothing happens, try holding the sensor for about 30 secs.

Solution no.3: It may be that one of your earphones which is not working might be low on battery. If you have already tried to charge it up and didn’t succeed. Try moving them around the box while the box light is blue, when they catch connection with the box, they will light up red. Use a paper towel or a tissue, do some folds and attach it inside the box top lid. Place the earphones and close the lid. Just try moving them around the box while the box light is running blue when they catch connection with the box, they will light up red. If one side isn’t charging, this will push the earphone of that side to attach with the charging terminal and charge.

If you succeeded with solution no.3, it looks like we have the charging box defect here.

If none of the solutions worked, your earpiece is faulty, go for replacing it.

Try this method:
1. Unpair the TWS from the device
2. Place TWS buds in case
3. Take the left TWS out
4. Wait for the prompt in Chinese, tap the bud 4 times
5. Place back in the case
6. Do the same for the right one.

How do I get both working at same time ? I can pair them both with phone and both will connect but I can’t get both to play at same time. Both sides work but only separately not at same time. How do I get both to work together?

It depends on the TV. Some have Bluetooth that only connects to the keyboard and mouse. While some support external speakers and earbuds.

They won’t stay in my ears. Duct tape anyone?

Isn’t that infamous about these earbuds and design type. I suggest grabbing earbuds with different-sized ear tips. Edifier X3, Fiil X1 Lite are some great examples.

Hi. Great article very informative. Sorry this is so long but I wanted to provide as much detail as possible. I have the inPods 12. They are touch controlled with True Wireless stereo V5.0. The problem I’m having is that I can’t get the right inPod to pair. It powers on and both lights flash back and forth from red to blue (just like any Bluetooth device Ive ever owned does when its in pairing mode) but it never connects, it just powers off after awhile (auto shut off I assume). I can tap three times on either inPod and… Read more »
