Find My features rolling out to AirPods Pro and AirPods Max

0 11

A new firmware update is now rolling out for Apple’s AirPods (2nd generation), AirPods Pro, AirPods Max and three Beats products: Solo Pro, Powerbeats 4 and Powerbeats Pro. Although Apple does not publish release notes for its AirPods products, we know that the new update has enabled “Find My” features for both AirPods Pro and AirPods Max. This means that the same network used to track AirTags can now be utilized for AirPods.

This was discovered thanks to one of 9 to 5Macare readers Ste Moseley who posted screenshots on Twitter.

These AirPods models are updated to version 4A400 and allow AirPods users to find either their AirPods Pro or AirPods Max devices if left unattended and connected to a host device. AirPods will now leverage Apple’s Find My network to track AirTags. This means that if you were to leave your AirPods at a coffee shop, you would be able to see a map of where they were left in the Find My App.

It seems that in the case of AIrPods Pro, only the pods themselves are displayed in the Find My app if they are not inside the charging case. AirPods owners can use Find My App to put AirPods Pro or AirPods Max in lost state and leave a message and contact phone number if found by another iPhone user.

Apple has updated its Support site to reflect the new Find My Features.
