If your AirPods have been lost or stolen, don’t despair. Apple has found a solution for this. You can use iCloud or Find My iPhone for free to log in and easily track them automatically.

Locate your AirPods with iCloud

To find your AirPods, you can use a few tools to help you. One of them from your iCloud account can be used from the website to find them or from the app.

First, if we use the icloud.com website, we need to use our details to log in. This way, our account will be linked to the devices. After this step, we need to click on the “Find iPhone” option.

The Find My iPhone function will start a search. Therefore, we need to click on the “All devices” tab and choose the missing one. If you succeed, you will see the location of your AirPods marked on the map.

They will appear as a small green dot if they are online, i.e. connected. If you see a grey dot, it means they can’t be found.

If you see a green dot on the map, click on it and then click button 1 in the window that appears. Next, a pop-up window will appear in which you have to apply the playback sound. This function is for AirPods to emit a loud sound.

In this option you can play sound on both earphones or just one of them. This will depend on whether you have lost one or both. This sound will help you find them easily near where you are, you will have to search around, letting the sound guide you to find them.

Locate your AirPods with the Find my iPhone app

If you’ve been unable to locate your AirPods using iCloud, you can use the Find My iPhone option, but note that this is used as a preventative measure. Therefore, it will only work if they were connected or synced with this app before you lost them, otherwise it won’t work.

If the headphones appear with a grey dot, it means they may be out of battery, out of range, or in hibernation, so they can’t connect when in the case.
