IMPORTANT NOTES


● Location services need to be enabled to use Find My with Apple devices. Select Location Services from the Privacy & Security menu in the Settings app to enable the feature.

● All Apple AirPods, including AirPods 1, AirPods 2, AirPods 3, AirPods Pro, AirPods Pro 2, and AirPods Max, are supported by Find My; however, there are some differences in capabilities.

● If you have AirPods Pro (2nd generation), you can see the location of each of your AirPods and the charging case on the map. For all other models, if your AirPods are separated from each other, you see only one location at a time. Find the one that you see on the map, put it back in its case, then refresh the map to locate the other one.

● If your AirPods are paired but currently offline, Find My shows the last time and last known location they were online.

● For AirPods (3rd generation), AirPods Pro (all generations), or AirPods Max, you can continue to see their updated location in the Find My app for up to 24 hours. After that, the Find My app shows the last time and place they were online.

● In addition to the iPhone, the Find My app is also available on the iPad, iPod touch, macOS, and iCloud.com.
