AirPods can be tracked until they are up to 40 feet away, and the moment they're out of that range, they're gone. Plus, the person who stole them can easily sync them to their own iPhone, making them harder to track with your device.
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. Finding your AirPods depends on the proximity of your iOS device. If your AirPods get stolen, you most likely won't be able to find them.
Use Find My to see your AirPods, AirPods Pro, or AirPods Max on a map and play a sound to locate them. If you already set up Find My with an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac that you're using with your AirPods, Find My can help you locate them.
Once AirPods have been reset it's impossible to track them. Despite Apple introducing their 'Find My AirPods' feature, if someone steals your AirPods, or finds them after they've been lost, you can only track them if they have not been reset.
Generally, all the person has to do is to place the AirPods inside a charging case. After this, the Setup button will be held for some seconds. Once they are done with this, the AirPods will reset and they will not be paired with your iPhone or any other Apple devices you own again.
Can I Find My AirPods if someone else connected to them?
What is this? You cannot play a sound to help find your AirPods if you see a gray dot next to them on the map, but you can still get directions to the location where they were last connected. If your AirPods reconnect, you'll receive a notification on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that you're using them with.
For this reason, using Find My AirPods to locate an AirPod that's been left behind isn't going to be particularly accurate, but it will give you a general idea of where they were lost so you can go back to the location.
To transfer ownership of your AirPods, you need to perform a factory reset on the AirPods, forget the AirPods from your phone and remove your Apple ID from them making it ready to connect to the new owners device. Keep reading to find out more about how to do this!
Why doesn't it show the last location of my AirPods?
There are a few reasons why you'll get a No Location Found message when you're trying to find your lost AirPods. If you didn't turn on Find My before your AirPods went missing, you won't be able to locate them. If your AirPods aren't charged, they won't be found until they're recharged.
Keep in mind you can only see the “last known location” of your AirPods in the Find My app if they're dead or offline. You can only use Find My to track your AirPods' current location if they've not run out of battery.
Tap on the small letter “i” next to your AirPods, to enter the information section. There, you will see the Forget This Device button, and you should tap on it. Then you should tap on it once more to confirm that you want your iPhone as well as other devices to forget your AirPods.
