Case #1: Finding My AirPods Case With My AirPods in It

This is easy because you have your AirPods in the case. This means you can try to locate your AirPods case through a simple method; finding your AirPods case with sound from music.

Method #1: Using Sound To Locate Your AirPods Case

As I have mentioned, this is the simplest method because all you have to do is play a piece of music and increase the volume. Then, you listen in to decipher where your AirPods and their case might be.

Let us help you out:

  1. Open your Find my iPhone app.
  2. Scroll through the list of paired devices
  3. Choose the option with your AirPods. If you see a green dot next to the name of your AirPods, it means that your device is online. Look for the play button next to it.
  4. Tap the play button. Your music should start playing.
  5. Increase the volume to the highest.
  6. Follow the music to find your AirPods case.

Method #1 only works if your AirPods are online. What do you do if your AirPods are offline?

When your AirPods are offline, you cannot track them by playing music. You will find a gray dot next to your name if your AirPods are offline. Anyway, here is what you should do.

Method #2: Finding Your AirPods Case if the AirPods Are Offline

  1. Open your Find My iPhone app.
  2. Choose the AirPods from the drop-down menu on the left side of the screen.
  3. When you see a gray dot, this means your AirPods are offline. However, you can track them based on your last location.
  4. Tap the Car icon to navigate yourself to the last location you used your AirPods.
  5. Search the area carefully.

Case #2: Finding My AirPods Case Only

Frankly, you need to say some prayers if you are in this group. Why? It isn’t easy to track your AirPods’ case without your AirPods in them. Do not fret! I have not said it is impossible. I only said it is difficult.

But here is how to go about it:

  1. Open the Find My iPhone app.
  2. Choose your AirPods from the list of paired devices.
  3. Tap the car button.
  4. Navigate your way to the last used location.
  5. Search the location carefully.

Case #3: How To Find My AirPods Case Without My iPhone

  2. Go to the Find My iPhone section.
  3. Select the Apple ID linked to your AirPods.
  4. Type in your Apple ID and Password.
  5. Click on All Devices.
  6. Choose your AirPods from the drop-down menu.
  7. The last location of each device is displayed as Offline under the device.

Case #4: How To Find My AirPods Case if They Do Not Appear on “Find My iPhone”

Not finding your AirPods listed amongst the paired devices is a bad sign. It means your AirPods are not just offline but out of range. When your AirPods are out of range, you can not connect to them using Bluetooth. This means locating the AirPods case will be a daunting process.

However, you can trace them to the location where you connected to them last. Hopefully, you will find your AirPods case there.

  1. Open the Find My iPhone app.
  2. Tap the car button.
  3. Navigate your way to the last connected location.
  4. Search the location carefully.
