iOS 10.3 has some neat features including “Find My AirPods,” which allows users to locate their lost or misplaced AirPods. In terms of functionality, it works very much like “Find My iPhone“.

If you ever, unfortunately, lose your AirPods during your workouts or misplace them somewhere at your home, Find My AirPods would help you locate them. There is also an option to play a high pitch sound on the earphones in order to find them a bit easily.
