    No they will not, After reading a previous answer to this question and went out and bought a right gen 1 airpod. The AirPods I have are gen 2 and I lost the right one. I was totally misled. When I put the right gen 1 AirPod in my gen 2 charging case (not the wireless one), it gave me the message ‘Mismatched AirPod: the AirPods in the charging case are different generations and do not work together’. I tried finding a solution online but haven’t seen anyone even talking about the issue.

  • Yes. You can use one from gen 1 and the other one from gen 2. Put different airpods in same case and keep the case closed for few minutes then it will automatically work together. When you open the airpods case near iPhone with airpods in it, iPhone shows which one is gen 1 or 2.
