As of iOS 10.3, Apple’s Find My iPhone app can also help locate your AirPods—under the right conditions, anyway. Since the AirPods connect to your iPhone with Bluetooth, if they’re powered on and connected, you’ll be able to see their location in the app and even get them to play a sound so you can find them if they’re under a couch cushion or shoved in the pocket of a forgotten jacket. But if they’re not connected, the feature isn’t incredibly helpful.

When you launch Find My iPhone, you’ll see your AirPods. You don’t need to set them up in this app at all, since you already paired them to another device that’s connected to your iCloud account (typically an iPhone or iPad). If that device is in this list, your AirPods will be too.

Tap the AirPods in the list for options. You can have a sound play, and then mute either the left or right AirPod. This is great if you’ve only lost one, so you can isolate the sound from the misplaced earbud without being distracted by sound from the one you still have. The sound starts off quiet and gets louder gradually.
