Since AirPods are so small and compact, it’s no wonder they’re so easy to lose.
A lot of AirPods users reported losing one of their AirPods, or even the entire case, since it’s so tiny.
Luckily, Apple developed ‘Find My’ years back, which makes it easy to locate any Apple product if it’s lost or stolen - works with iPhones, iPads, Apple Tags, AirPods and Macs.
Therefore, no need to worry, if your AirPods have been connected to ‘Find my’, you’ll be able to locate them in no time!
First things first, ‘Find My’ is a service developed by Apple to help you keep track of your Apple products, or find them when they’re lost or stolen.
As we mentioned, the service works with and is available for all Apple devices.
If the gadget is nearby, you can play sounds in order to locate them faster and easier.
Additionally, if you are unsure as to where your gadget is at the time, ‘Find My’ has a map as well, so you can see where your gadget is located - regardless if it’s in the car, at the office, or a friend’s house.
