See your AirPods, AirPods Pro or AirPods Max on a map

Find My shows you the location of the Apple devices that you're signed in to with the same Apple ID, including your AirPods, AirPods Pro or AirPods Max. Or if they're not connected, the last time and place they were online.

See your AirPods, AirPods Pro or AirPods Max on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Mac

  1. Open the Find My app.
  2. Select the Devices tab.
  3. Choose your AirPods. Under each device, you see a location, or "No location found".

See your AirPods or AirPods Pro on your computer

  1. Go to iCloud.com/find.
  2. Sign in with your Apple ID.
  3. Click All Devices, then click your AirPods. Under each device, you see when its location was last found, or "Offline". 

If you only need to find one AirPod or AirPod Pro

If your AirPods or AirPods Pro are separated from each other, you only see one location at a time on the map. Find the AirPod or AirPod Pro that you see on the map and put it in its case. Then refresh the map and find the other one.

Play a sound

If your AirPods are near any of your Apple devices and connected to bluetooth, you can play a sound to help you find them from iCloud.com or the Find My app. Your AirPods play a sound that gets gradually louder for two minutes, or until you tell them to stop.

  1. Open the Find My app.
  2. Select the Devices tab.
  3. Choose your AirPods from the list.
  4. Tap Play Sound.

Make sure that your AirPods, AirPods Pro or AirPods Max are not in or on your ears before you play a sound.

If your AirPods, AirPods Pro or AirPods Max are offline

If your AirPods, AirPods Pro or AirPods Max are out of range or need to charge, you might see their last known location, "No location found" or "Offline". You also won't see the location for your AirPods or AirPods Pro if they're inside their charging case. You can see AirPods Max in Find My for up to 18 hours inside their Smart Case. Outside of their Smart Case, you can see them for 72 hours. Learn more about AirPods Max battery life

If you see "No location found" or "Offline" under your AirPods, AirPods Pro or AirPods Max, you can't play a sound to find them but you might be able to get directions to the location where they were last connected. If they do come back online, you'll get a notification on the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch you use them with.

Find My is the only way that you can track or locate a lost or missing device. There is no other Apple service that can find, track or otherwise flag your device for you.

If you're using a Managed Apple ID assigned to you by a school or institution, you don’t have access to Find My.

Replace a missing AirPod or case

If you still can't find your AirPod or charging case, or if something is damaged, get the serial number and then contact Apple Support for a replacement. Then learn how to set up your replacement.
