Update: Apple has removed “Finder for AirPods” from App Store. As per the developer, Apple found the app inappropriate as it didn't like its concept.
Are you concerned about losing your AirPods? If yes, it's time to let go of that concern.
Meet “Finder for AirPods” app which lets you find your lost or misplaced AirPods using your paired iPhone with ease. Rather than paying $70 to Apple to replace an AirPod, it's better to use this smart app to never lose sight of the wireless earphones. Let's check out how it works!
How to Find Lost AirPods Using iPhone
Note: Make sure to use the iPhone or iPad which has been paired with the AirPod.
Step #1. Download Finder for AirPods app from App Store on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 10.1 or later. It's available for $3.99.
Step #2. Launch the app on your iOS device.
Step #3. Now, you have the option to select which AirPod you want to find. Select the AirPod and tap on Next.
(Note: If you want to locate both AirPods, tap on Next and then close the lid of the charging case.)
Step #4. Next, you need to put the left AirPod in the charging case and close the lid. Then, tap on Get It, Start Finding.
Step #5. Next, you need to move towards the area where you think you have lost the AirPods.
Now, if you get closer to the lost earphone, the app's meter will let you know that “You are getting closer…” And, if you get very close to the lost earphone, it will tell you “It's around here.”
Step #6. Once you have found the AirPod, tap on I Found It.
