Some Helpful Tips In Case You Lose Your AirPods

After losing your AirPods, make sure to mark them as lost through the Find My app. That way, when somebody tries to pair with their device, you will receive a notification from the app. The person who got your AirPod will also see a note in their iCloud account data that says, “Not Your AirPods.”

Additionally, if you reclaimed your AirPods or bought a new set, make sure to enable Find My and, if you wish, the separation alerts as well. By doing the latter, you will receive a notification on your iPhone saying that your AirPods are no longer with you. That way, you’ll know the whereabouts of your AirPods immediately if you leave them behind.

Final Words: Important Things to Remember

Before we conclude this article, it’s worth mentioning that you can only locate AirPods through the Find My app if the battery is not dead yet and the AirPods are online. Likewise, you can only locate a lost AirPods case through the app if one of the AirPods is inside the case. That being said, if you have the second generation AirPods Pro and you lose the charging case, you can still locate it using the Find My app even without AirPods inside.

So, to avoid the inconvenience of trying to locate your AirPods when you lose or misplace them, the ultimate strategy would be to always be mindful of their whereabouts. That is, if you always bring your AirPods with you. Another helpful solution may be to get an AirTag and attach it to your AirPods case.
