A new Apple iOS 15 feature could help users detect their lost AirPods Pro and AirPods Max quite similarly to using AirTags. This came along with Apple's announcement of several other features for the new AirPods with iOS 15.
Apple iOS 15 AirPods Finder
According to the story by News18, these features also include the Conversation Boost as well as the Find My ability for AirPods and iOS 15 users. Apple has also just recently added a new functionality to its very own AirPods Pro as well as AirPods Max that makes sure that users won't lose their Apple earphones or headphones very easily.
While users can still locate their very own AirPods through using the Precision Finding, the iOS 15 will also directly link AirPods with the user's very own Apple ID in order to ensure that they can easily be found anywhere. The new iOS 15 will make use of Bluetooth technology in order to precisely locate the AirPods Pro or the AirPods Max.
AirPods Pro and AirPods Max
The AirPods Pro and the AirPods Max can be found when a user is near them but aren't too sure where they are actually located. This feature works quite similarly to how the functionality of the Apple AirTags work. The iOS 15 also had additional Health App updates like food tracking and more.
The feature is reportedly available for both the AirPods Pro and the AirPods Max and will allow users to check the current AirPods location on the map event whenever they aren't connected to a device. In order to do this, Apple will use the user's official Apple ID.
Apple ID for iOS 15
According to the report by 9to5Mac, the iOS 15 internal code actually hints that the lost AirPods will still continue to send the user their location through the operating system's Find My network despite someone else connecting to the device. As of the moment, despite being directly tied to an Apple ID, the Apple AirPods will not really have an activation lock just like the iOS devices.
The system will reportedly be similar to what Apple is offering with the AirTags, which is also directly tied to an Apple ID which can even be reset through just a few manual steps. The report by 9to5Mac also reportedly showed animations in iOS 15 Beta 5 showing users how to remove AirPods from their device's Find My network.
Find My Network and Precision Finding
Holding onto the noise cancellation button along with the device's Digital Crown for around 12 seconds on the AirPods Max will then unpair the headphones from the operating system's Find My. When it comes to the AirPods Pro, users will still be required to hold their fingers on the speaker holes while they continue to press the button on the stems a number of times.
When the features roll out, they will be pushed through a firmware update on the AirPods Pro and the AirPods Max. The first and second gen AirPods won't be compatible with this Find My network as well as Precision Finding. There are other iOS 15 features worth knowing that have been made available to the operating system's users.
