There is no way to prevent your AirPods from being stolen or lost. You cannot lock or remotely control them. This statement may not be the right answer for you, but it might help you locate your AirPods before someone else does.

This article may seem odd, as you can’t block anyone from using your AirPods. It is a question that many people are eager to find the answer to. They need to know the truth, but they may think that they were stolen. This article will help readers track down their AirPods and identify when they are not able to do so. This article explains how to avoid losing your AirPods.

What should you do if your AirPods are stolen or lost?

They may have been knocked over by the cat, but you believe someone took them. The charging/storage box may be missing but was actually left behind by you when something happened. Maybe your AirPods were stolen but they haven’t been used yet. There are many possibilities. If you act quickly, you might be able to find out where they went, and recover them. Continue reading for more information.

All AirPods use Bluetooth technology for connecting to iPhones and other devices.

They are difficult to find because they don’t have a Wi-Fi connection.

Don’t despair. Apple understands how frustrating it can be to lose your AirPods so they have a solution. To locate your AirPods, you can use the website or the ” Locate My iPhone” app available in the App Store.

If someone takes your AirPods, they won’t be able to locate them on the website or app. You should act quickly if you suspect that your AirPods have been stolen. Sometimes you may be able to connect the AirPods to your iCloud account and get lucky. If you lose them, you have no other options.

This process sounds complex in theory. Let’s move on to the actual application.

How to locate your AirPods with iCloud

The iCloud website might be able to help you locate your AirPods if you have lost them. Follow these steps.

  1. Visit “iCloud.com/find” on your computer.
  2. Log in to the Apple account linked to your AirPods.
  3. You can search for your iPhone using the Find my iPhone feature. You can search for your AirPods, but that’s not the case.
  4. The page will tell you that all devices are offline unless you have an iPhone. Click the ” All Devices ” Tab and choose ” AirPods .”
  5. If your search succeeds, you will see your AirPods highlighted on the map. When they are online, the green dot will indicate that they are connected to your iPhone or iPad. They are either unavailable or cannot be found by the gray dot.
  6. Click on the dot to confirm that your AirPods have been found (green dot). Next, click the I” link in the window that opens.
  7. Click on ” Play Sound” to trigger a loud sound from your AirPods.
  8. You can mute the right or left Airpod, stop the sound playing, or turn off the sound. This is helpful if you have only one Airpod. Trust us, you don’t want this sound blasting in your ears.

Take a look around your home or at the place where you used the AirPods last. You should hear a loud sound to locate them. If you drop your AirPods in multiple locations, but only one is found, put the AirPod in its case so that it doesn’t alarm. Then, follow the same steps to find the other AirPod.

If the Find My iPhone app can’t locate your AirPods

You have a problem if your AirPods appear as a gray dot in the Find my iPhone App. This status shows only their last location.

The gray dots can occur for many reasons. Before you lose your AirPods, make sure to install the Find My iPhone App. This is the best way to protect your AirPods from being lost. Make sure you do this as soon as possible after purchasing your AirPods.

It is possible that your AirPods have lost their charge. If the battery has died, it won’t turn on. They may also be out of range. They can be found within a radius of the Apple device to which it is connected (Bluetooth range).

Your AirPods may be in the AirPods Case. They can’t be connected to your device while they are in the case.

This article should have helped you locate your AirPods or, at the very least, track them better with Find My iPhone. Unfortunately, AirPods are much harder to find than your iPhone because iPhones are always online (when switched on) and can, therefore, get tracked more easily. Your iPhone is responsible for finding your AirPods once it is close to it.

You won’t be able to find your AirPods if they are stolen. This is a sad reality. Apple will replace your Airpod or case if you only lose one. To relay Apple support, you will need the serial number for your AirPods.

These replacements will cost you an extra fee but are less expensive than buying a new set.
