Lost One of Your AirPods? The Finder for AirPods App Will Help You Find it

One of the top worries for iPhone users who have considered buying a pair of Apple’s wireless AirPods wireless earphones is the fear they might lose one or both of the tiny devices. Finder for AirPods claims to be able to find the lost earbuds for you.

Lost One of Your AirPods? The Finder for AirPods App Will Help You Find it

Why pay for a replacement when our app will find them for you?

If you misplace your AirPods, this app will let you use any iOS device that are paired to your AirPods to help find it. Simply install this app, open it, and the app will guide you to your missing AirPods. Find My AirPods will help you locate your missing AirPods by trying to look for your AirPods wireless signature.

Wow. They say AirPods a lot in that paragraph.

The app developer notes your AirPods generally have 5 hours of battery life when they’re out of their case, so use the app to begin searching immediately after noticing one is missing. (Hopefully, they were lost in the general area you’re currently in.)

Features of the app include:

  • Find your lost AirPods
  • A step-by-step process to guide you to find them
  • Location approximation
  • Locate one AirPod at a time
  • Locate both AirPods
  • A really slick user interface (The developer’s words, not ours, but it looks nice enough)

We can’t vouch for how well the app works, as we haven’t lost our AirPods. (Because, ours do not exist.) However, a Product Hunt reader claims they tried the app, and says it works great. The app will run you $3.99 (USD) in the App Store, but considering the cost to replace a single AirPod is $69, $3.99 doesn’t sound too bad.
