One of the pioneers of creating high tech gadgets, Apple has never failed to surprise its customers. Yet again, Apple has come up with something new that is bound to awe its loyal customers. The company has recently released iOS 10.3 officially, and as usual it is packed with a host of surprises. AirPods users would find themselves lucky, for the gadget’s updated version is all set to amuse the users. The Find My iPhone feature is now available on AirPods, and it would make the process of finding misplaced AirPods incredibly easy.
Easier to locate misplaced earbuds
The feature called Find My Airpods is new and thus a few glitches are quite common. This AiPod feature is not quite sophisticated as the iPhone one, as one has to connect their iPhone to their AirPods for making this new feature functional. This also means that if the two devices are present not quite close to each other, the feature will not operate. However, Apple is known for its constant customer dedication and thus every AirPod user can be assured that the company will try its best to find the misplaced device. This new feature is accessible just like the other ‘Find’ services for Apple Watch, iPod, iPad, and Mac.
Find My AirPod
For using this new and enhanced Apple feature, simply log into the Find iPhone application, and find ‘AirPods’ in the list of available devices. From there, you will find where all the Apple products including the Airpods are located. For locating the AirPod only, tap the option given and you’ll find an option which will allow you to play a song on the device. You’ll also find a similar option which will allow you to mute the right or left AirPod for stopping the music. The feature of stopping the music is provided to help you locate only one of them if you’ve not misplaced both. Although, the sound emitted isn’t that loud, but it is enough to find a misplaced earbud in a moderately quiet environment.
Keep it connected with the iPhone
For those of you, who have started using iPhone or AirPods for not that long need to know that the feature will only work if the AirPods are connected to the iPhone. In case, your device isn’t connected to the AirPods or you’ve misplaced them in some other location you will only get to see its last location. Even if you press the ‘play sound’ button you’ll receive a screen pop up saying ‘sound pending’. However, while most of us are in the habit or losing or misplacing earbuds, this function will be a boon for all Apple users.
It’s quite useful for tracing nearby AirPods. Even though Apple has made it far easier to locate misplaced gadgets (that are expensive), losing them at a faraway location might make it difficult for you to locate. Inspite of this slight technical hurdle, the feature is advantageous and even more applaud able is the gadgets wireless design. So, if you’ve invested in AirPods no need to fret if you’ve managed to misplace it. Apple’s impeccable features will help you locate the device and save you from the hassle of buying new ones.
