AirPods provide durable, true wireless sound for your Bluetooth devices, but it happens sometimes that you reach up and find that you have only one earbud left in your ears, and no idea where’s the other.
Fortunately, there are easy ways to find your lost AirPods — just learn to use the service Apple designed for these accidents. I’ll show you how.
1.Use Find My app
The Apple native app called Find My allows you to track down your phone, AirPods, and other devices. Open Find My app, then sign in with your Apple ID. You can also sign in via the web version, iCloud.com.
After that , select Devices>>AirPods, a map will pop up showing where your devices are. The place might not be exact, but it helps a lot if you lost your AirPods on a commute, or not sure you left them at work or in the gym.
What if your AirPods have run out of battery? The app may not be of much help, but it can show you the last place the AirPods were detected, so you would be able to find them based on this information.
2.Make your AirPods ring
If you’ve finished the earlier steps and know your AirPods are nearby, you can select Play Sound and make them ring. On the condition that you’ve lost both earbuds in different locations, there is an option to switch the sound between either.
If you still can’t find your AirPods, you may ask” Can I just replace just one AirPod?”
The answer is definitely yes. Apple provides service for repair and replacement. An AirPods will cost you $69 to replace, while an AirPod Pro will cost $89. This is a little expensive, but cheaper than replacing both AirPods. Of course, if you have a warranty, you only need to pay $30 to replace an AirPod for either model.
