2. Select Devices from the drop-down menu.

If the misplaced AirPods cannot be located, the message No Location Found will appear (more on this below).

TIPS: If your AirPods are not in the same location, the map will only display one of them at a time if they are not in the same location. Locate the AirPod that was marked on the map and place it back in its container. Then, reload the map, and the second AirPod will appear on the map to assist you in locating it.

What to Do if You Can’t Find Lost AirPods

It’s possible that when you try to locate your missing AirPods, you’ll get a “No Location Found” notice. It’s impossible to find your AirPods if you didn’t activate Find My before they were missing. Your AirPods will not be found until they are charged again. You won’t see them if they’re not within range of your iOS device.

To discover your AirPods, if you get the “No Position Found” notice, you can’t play a sound, but you may be able to receive instructions to the last known location.

Maybe you’ll need to buy new AirPods after all of this if it doesn’t work. Even if you’ve had it with Apple, there are a slew of alternative excellent wireless earbuds available. The new AirPod may be purchased from Apple and used in lieu of the lost original.



My AirPods were stolen. If someone connects them to their iPhone, can I find them?

Unfortunately, this is not the case. Following a successful pairing of the AirPods with a new iPhone, you’ll only be able to see their last known location through Find My iPhone.

Can I find my AirPods if they’re in their case?

Unless you remove AirPods or AirPods Pro from their case, you will be unable to see where they are located on your person. For those who have AirPods Max, you will be able to view them in Find My for up to 18 hours while they are still in their carrying case.
