Apple has started rolling out “Find My” feature support for its AirPods Pro and AirPods Max headphones with a new firmware update. With Find My support, it will now be possible to add AirPods Pro and AirPods Max headphones to the Find My app to find out where they are. This includes Apple’s precise location feature, lost mode, and the ability to receive notifications when your headphones are left behind, iMore reports.
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 AirTag’s layout, with a large “target” dot that decreases in size when a user gets closer to AirPods. Instead of AirTag’s green dot, AirPods show a blue graphic.
AirPod’s new Find My features were originally scheduled to roll out with iOS 15 last month, but Apple has delayed the release.
The released update is automatically downloaded and installed when AirPods Pro and AirPods Max are connected to a host device and there is no manual installation method.
Prior to the update, AirPods Pro was listed in the Find My app, but the feature wasn’t working as you might expect.
