Apple brings Find My support to AirPods Pro, AirPods Max
October 8, 2021
Apple has started rolling out the ‘Find My’ feature support for its AirPods Pro and AirPods Max headphones with a new firmware update. With Find My support, one will be now able to add AirPods Pro and AirPods Max headphones to the Find My app to keep track of where they are. This includes Apple’s Precise Location feature, Lost Mode, and the option to receive notifications, when your earbuds are left behind, reports iMore.
With Lost Mode, iPhone customers who misplace their AirPods will now be able to leave a message and contact phone number.
The interface used in Find Nearby is similar to the layout of AirTag, with a large “target” dot that decreases in size when a user gets closer to AirPods. Instead of AirTag’s green dot, AirPods features a blue graphic.
AirPods’ new Find My capabilities were initially expected to roll out with iOS 15 last month, but Apple delayed the release.
The update issued is automatically downloaded as well as installed when AirPods Pro and AirPods Max are connected to a host device and there is no method of manual installation.
Prior to the update, AirPods Pro was listed on the Find My app but the functionality did not work as you might expect.
