What To Do When You Lose Your AirPods

Most  people lose their earphones every now and then. So if Apple’s AirPods are smaller than regular earphones, why are they easier to find?  They are easier to look for because you can use the Find My IPhone app. Once you turn the app on, you will find your AirPods in no time! 

What If My AirPods Are Out Of Range, Not Charged, Or In A Case?

If you lose your AirPods, you can simply sign into iCloud.com or use Find My IPhone to locate them. If they are not close to your other Apple devices, need to be charged, or are in a case, don’t fret! Apple has made it possible to still locate them under those conditions. Once you sign in to iCloud.com or Find My IPhone, you can see your AirPods on a map even if they are not connected at the time. You can see where they are located if they are connected and also where you had them the last time they were connected. Either way, don’t lose hope. Apple has thought of all of the ways to help you track down your AirPods.

Besides looking at them on iCloud or Find My IPhone, you can also play a sound. If your AirPods are connected to Bluetooth, then you can play a sound to help you locate them. The sound volume increases for two minutes or until you say “Stop.” You can play the sound on any other Apple device and it will help you find them.

What Happens If My AirPods Are Offline?

Are your AirPods offline? Did you forget to turn on Find My IPhone before you lost them? If so, then you must  wait to see if they come back online. Once they are online, the other Apple devices you use them with will give you a notification. However, there is nothing you can do until they get back online.

If your AirPods seem to not be coming back online, then you can contact Apple Support for a replacement. Apple Support will tell you more about the options you have for replacing them with new ones.

Although AirPods are smaller than regular earphones, they can be difficult to lose permanently . If you lost your AirPods, follow this advice and find them as soon as possible. If you didn’t lose them but are scared you will someday, take action. Turn on Find My IPhone for your AirPods and avoid future stress! For more information, click here
