The reason why many people use Apple’s AirPods is because they are comfortable, dependable, and have great sound quality. However, one downside is that they are very easy to misplace or lose. This also applies to the case that holds the AirPods. So, today I will show you how to locate your AirPods case even if the AirPods themselves are not inside.
Can I Find My AirPods Case Without the AirPods?
If you have the newer AirPods Pro, you can use a map to find the charging case if it gets separated from the AirPods. Unfortunately, the other models don’t have this feature unless there’s at least one AirPod in the case or if you attach an AirTag to it.
Apple’s AirPods can be connected to the Find My app, but the case that comes with them can’t. Also, the AirPods case doesn’t have its own Bluetooth connection. Because of this, it might be difficult to track the case using other apps. Also read How to Reset AirPods Pro From Previous Owner.
How To Find Your Airpod Case Without Pods
The Find My app is the best tool for finding a lost or misplaced device. No other Apple service can find, track, or identify your device in any other way.
But if you didn’t activate it before your AirPods or case went missing, you can’t use the Find My app to track them.
Here’s how to locate your AirPods or charging case using Find My:
- Make sure you have the latest version of iOS, iPadOS, or macOS.
- Open the Find My app.
- Go to the Devices tab.
- Select your AirPods case (for second generation), your AirPods if at least one of them is in the case, or your attached AirTag. If the location is available, it will be displayed under your device.
- You can also try locating your AirPods on iCloud’s Find Devices page. However, some features may not be available for certain types of AirPods.
If you still can’t find your AirPods or charging case, or if something is broken, you’ll need to find the serial number to get a replacement from Apple Support.
In conclusion, losing or misplacing your AirPods case can be a common problem, but there are ways to locate it even if the AirPods themselves are not inside. While newer models like AirPods Pro offer the ability to use a map to find the case, other models require at least one AirPod in the case or an attached AirTag for tracking. The Find My app is the best tool for locating your AirPods or charging case, but it must be activated beforehand. By ensuring you have the latest software version and following the steps in the Find My app, you can increase your chances of finding your lost items. If all else fails, retrieving the serial number will be necessary for obtaining a replacement from Apple Support.
