How To Track Your Airpods?

Track your AirPods via Find My iPhone

When you pair your AirPods to your iPhone, they’ll be stored on that device. This means that you can use Find My iPhone on iCloud to track your missing AirPods. You can locate the device on a map, and even play a sound on the device. This will help you track down your AirPods when they go missing. That way, you won’t have to go around your house blindly looking for them. You can use Find My iPhone to track your lost AirPods. Find My iPhone can be used by anyone with an Apple ID, even if they aren’t the owner of the AirPods. You just need to be logged into iCloud with your account. Once logged in, you can click on “Find My iPhone” and then click on the AirPods device. You’ll be able to see its location and you can play a sound on the device to help you find it.

Finding your lost AirPods with a shake

If you’ve lost both of your AirPods, then you can use a clever trick to find one of them. You can use the other AirPod to find the lost one. Just shake the other AirPod and it’ll make a sound that’ll help you find the missing AirPod. This can come in handy if you’ve lost one of your AirPods and don’t know where it is.

The sound will travel through walls, so you might be able to find it even if you can’t see it.

Track your AirPods using Find My Friends

While the previous two ways of tracking your AirPods only worked if you actually lost them somehow, you can use Find My Friends to track your AirPods all the time.

This can help you find your AirPods before they get too far away from you.

Track your AirPods using iCloud

This is another feature that’s built into iCloud and it can track any device that’s logged into your account. You can track your lost AirPods by going to iCloud.

Track your AirPods using the iOS Activity Log

If you want to track the time when your AirPods were last used, you can use the iOS Activity Log. This is an iOS feature that tracks all interactions with your iOS devices.
