Ways to Find lost AirPods That are Offline?

If you look at the way technology worked in the last couple of years, we can firmly say we live in an era where we are seeing too many innovative and outstanding tech gadgets that any human being has managed to see. The usage of wired headphones is decreasing every day because of the introduction of AirPods, which work wirelessly and give you access to listen to music anywhere. 

If you have misplaced your AirPods recently or forget not to place them in the given case, then you must be panicking, but that’s not a big deal. You can use FIND MY application on your Macbook and find your AirPods, but many people don’t know how to do it, so here in this article, I have articulated some best ways to do it.

What Do Airpods Are Not Online Truly Mean?

Many people don’t truly understand what AirPods in offline mode mean, and they tend to use incorrect information to get over it. Airpods are just like any other wireless headphones. If you are not going to take care of them, they will surely get disconnected from your nearby connected devices.

So AirPods are in offline mode, which means that your iPhone or macBook cannot find these devices nearby, and there could be some reasons behind it. For example, if you have lost one of the pairs of the AirPods, then it can be easy to know why one of them is not getting found, or if their battery is dead, then that could be the reason why you are not able to connect them instantly. 

If you are getting the “No location is found” message on your device, then it’s time that you need to find those wireless AirPods and make sure that they are properly connected again. 

How To Find Lost Airpods That Are Offline

So here I have explained some legit ways through which you can be able to find the lost airpods that are out of the network. However, before you do the actual stuff, you need to make sure that you have a working computer, a device to which these AirPods are connected, and a working internet connection. If you have got all of these things, follow the various methods below and find your lost AirPods.

One of the easiest and best ways to find your lost airpods is using the find my application on the devices these pods are connected to. If you have an iPhone or macbook, then install this application, and you will be able to find the location of the AirPods in no time, and it works flawlessly. 

Method 2 – Use Find My Application On iPhone

  • Open Find My application on iPhone.
  • Click on the Airpods section.
  • It will open the connected AirPods devices.
  • Your AirPods are already offline, so you will not be able to find them instantly, but they will be shown on the list through the grey icon, click on it, and it will show you the last location of your AirPods.
  • Click on the location, and find them. 

The tricky part of this method is that anyone with this application and the iPhone device will be able to find these AirPods, so you better hurry and try to find them. Because their last location will not show the true data about it, and that’s why try to keep your AirPods always at some charging level. 

Method 3 – Find My Application Through Computer/iCloud.

If you have a computer, you can use this amazing application and try to find your lost airpods that are still offline, so follow these steps.

  • Open your desired web browser.
  • Go to icloud.com and log in to your account.
  • In some cases, they need you to put the verification code, so do that.
  • In the iCloud menu, go to the FIND iPhone section, click on it and choose ONLY ONCE.
  • Again enter your Apple ID and password for verification purposes. 
  • Now a Map will appear on the screen.
  • Click on the ALL DEVICE option.
  • Now select your AirPods and locate their last seen location. 

Method 4 – Use Play Sound To Find AirPods

This option might not be working if your AirPods are in offline mode, but if they’re in online mode, fortunately, then you can use them to find them instantly.

This option is available under find my application, and once you click on it, it will play a sound through the AirPods, and if you are near them, then bazinga! So you have just managed to find your airpods through that little noise. Here are the detailed steps you need to follow.

  • Open FIND MY application.
  • Go to the all devices option.
  • Now from the list, choose AirPods.
  • A map of the location will appear, then click on the PLAY SOUND option.
  • Click on the left or right air peace option to play the sound, and it will start playing it.
  • This sound will increase every single minute, and it’s easier to find them in nearby places.

What To Do If Your AirPods Are Placed In A Different Location?

Find My application will help you locate both the lost AirPods easily. So once you find one piece of AirPods, you need to put it in the airpod case, and then go to the location mapping, and it will show you no the second lost airpod piece, and that’s what you need.

I Am Not Able To Find My AirPods In Any Way; What Should Be Done?

Now, if that’s the case you are in, then buddy, I can feel your pain because losing a booth of your AirPods is not a good thing, and it will piss you off for sure. But if you genuinely followed the methods mentioned above to find your AirPods and still you cannot find them, then it’s quite hard for sure.

In that case, you can go to the Apple Center and try to file the report; if they can, they will help you. But if you cannot get any help whatsoever, then get the new pair and get over that loss. 

How Do I Replace One Piece Of AirPods?

Now, if that’s the case, you can apply for the replacement program that will cost you some money for sure, but they will help you with that. The replacement program fee is relatively less than what the original product would cost you, and that’s quite important. In other cases, buy the new airpod for yourself and enjoy the music. 

AirPods Comes With Certain Limitations 

If you think that Apple is taking care of everything and still cannot find the lost AirPods, that’s the main issue. I know that Apple is a big tech giant company, and they are putting more focus on the security features in each of their products. However, when it comes to LOST cases of AirPods, iPhones, or any other things, there are very few applications of technology that will help you get them abc instantly, and you have to accept it’s a fact for sure. 

Airpods are not built with any security features; at least, I’m not aware of them, but I have heard that they are trying to overcome it by building some useful tools and features for it also.
