Arrange the chicken wings in a single layer and dry them thoroughly using paper towels on both sides. Sprinkle evenly with salt, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper.

Transfer the wings into the air fryer and set the temperature to 380°F. Cook for 25 minutes, pausing every 5 minutes to flip the wings with tongs. By the end of 25 minutes, the wings should be tender and fully cooked.

Increase the temperature to 400°F and continue cooking until the skin becomes crispy and golden brown, which should take an additional 5 to 8 minutes. Optionally, coat the wings with hot sauce and melted butter before serving.
