Initially, let’s revisit how we landed in this situation. Apple revolutionized wireless audio with the introduction of AirPods. However, it introduced a new element: the case.

All AirPods models, except AirPods Max, come with a separate case for storage and charging. Yet, losing this case became a common tale among users.

Previously, tracking down the case seemed impossible. Fortunately, Apple’s Find My app now offers a solution. Just like locating lost AirPods, you can now use Find My to find your AirPods case.

Utilize any iOS device or iCloud to pinpoint its location on a map or trigger an audible alert. Here’s how:

FAQs on Finding an AirPods Case:

Is it worth marking your AirPods case as lost?

  • For AirPods (3rd Gen), AirPods Pro, or AirPods Max, Lost Mode can be activated via the Find My app, but it only applies to the AirPods themselves. However, AirPods Pro 2 allows marking each pod and the case as lost individually. When activated, your phone number will be visible to whoever finds it once connected to an Apple device, triggering a notification if connected via Bluetooth. Though Lost Mode doesn’t prevent use, it’s advisable to turn it on for iCloud data security.
