Despite what the name may lead you to believe, the Galaxy Buds wireless earbuds are not limited to the Samsung Galaxy smartphone.

You can also use Galaxy Buds with your iPhone, pairing them just as you would sync up any other Bluetooth earbuds or headphones.

While pairing a Samsung Galaxy phone to a pair of Galaxy Buds is as easy as opening the charging case near the phone and tapping "Connect" on its screen, there are only a few more steps to pair Galaxy Buds with an iPhone to enjoy high quality audio.

Here's how to do it.

Check out the products mentioned in this article:

Galaxy Buds (From $129.99 at Best Buy)

iPhone 11 (From $699.99 at Best Buy)

AirPods with Wireless Charging Case (From $199.99 at Best Buy)

Samsung Galaxy S10 (From $899.99 at Best Buy)

4. Open the Galaxy Buds case in close proximity to the phone, and when the earbuds pop up on the iPhone screen, tap to pair.

Just make sure the light inside the Galaxy Buds case is illuminated when you open it, as that indicates it is in pairing mode.
