Apple’s new AirPods are a wireless version of their Earpods, meaning they’re two independent little things that hang in your ears with no cord. It would be easier than easy to lose one or both of them.
One of their features is that they are self-configuring, via iCloud, rather than having to much around with Bluetooth pairing. And they’re always communicating with your phone. So you know what they should have? Find My AirPods, just like Find My iPhone. 99% of the time you’re going to lose them in the bottom of a bag or somewhere in your home. Even if they’re out of juice, if it could show you where they were known to be last.
For all I know, Apple thought of this and we’ll find out that feature exists when the AirPods ship. We can hope, because they’re tiny, and $159.
