How to connect Beats to Mac

Since 2014, Beats has been an Apple subsidiary and the results are visible. They look stylish, sound great, and come with a decent battery life.

There is a lot to choose from – wired in-ear ones that plug into an audio jack to over-the-head wireless headphones that use Bluetooth technology.

While Mac still has the audio jack, most Apple devices have nixed it. Therefore, connecting a pair of Bluetooth headphones isn’t as simple as plugging wired headphones into the audio jack.

Many users face the issue of not being able to connect Bluetooth headphones to their Mac.

This article will show you how to connect Beats to Mac with a step-by-step process.

To do so, turn your Beats on and click on the Bluetooth menu in the menu bar. Tap on the Beats headphones, and click on Connect.
