Here's how to use it:

  1. Grab your iPhone. This method relies on the Find My app that's on iPhones.

  2. Open the Find My app. Look for the app icon that looks like a green radar.

  3. Find your AirPods on the list. Under the "Devices" tab, you should see your AirPods listed. If they're connected to your iPhone, they'll show as online.

  4. See their location on a map. If your AirPods are online, you'll see their location on a map within the Find My app.

  5. Play a sound to find them nearby. If your AirPods are close by but hidden somewhere, you can make them play a sound to help you locate them. There's a "Play Sound" option in the Find My app that will do this.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind:

  • Find My Network: Make sure Find My Network is enabled for your AirPods. This allows them to send location data even when they're not connected to your iPhone.
  • Out of range: If your AirPods are far away or not connected, you won't see their live location, but you'll see the last connected location.
  • Case: The AirPods themselves need to be outside of the charging case to be located with Find My.

If you're still having trouble finding your AirPods after following these steps, you can check out Apple's support page on Find My AirPods [Apple Support - Find My AirPods]. They have additional tips and troubleshooting steps that might help.
