Apple has a huge Find My network of tools and with the latest firmware updates, AirPods Pro and AirPods Max are a part of it. These wireless headphones can continuously send Bluetooth beacon messages.
Earlier this year in June, Apple – at its annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) – announced a feature with the ability to detect lost AirPods. This feature was supposed to come with iOS 15 but it did not roll out then. A report by 9to5Mac states that Apple has released a firmware update for the AirPods Pro and AirPods, which will make them easier to find with the Find My app.
Now it comes to how this feature will work? Let us tell you that Apple has a huge Find My network of tools and with the latest firmware update, AirPods Pro and AirPods Max are a part of it. This means that these wireless headphones can continuously send Bluetooth beacon messages. If there are other tools in an area where AirPods are lost, they can detect a signal and show it on Find My Network.
This will give the user an idea of the location of the lost Airtags. Users will also get a visual indicator of the estimated location of the device.
How to Get New Firmware Update on AirPods
It’s been several years now but receiving the new firmware update remains a task on AirPods. There is no fix process for this where you can toggle something on the iPhone and get updates. You can just try. For this, place the AirPods inside the case next to the iPhone and wait for the firmware update to land automatically. Generally, once an update arrives, AirPods users get it in a relatively short period of time.
Is this feature similar to airtags?
Not necessary. Airtags have a U1 chip inside that gives them a directional arrow feature that can point you to their exact location. The AirPods don’t have a U1 chip, so it has a different UI and a blue theme, while the AirTags have a green theme. Note that the Find My feature is only compatible with AirPods Pro and AirPods Max.
