New app helps you locate your missing AirPods

Lost AirPods

Apple's AirPods became an instant meme thanks to the assumption that they would be easy to misplace due to their wireless design, but all jokes aside, losing a $160 accessory isn't really all that humorous. AirPods lack the wires that tether standard earbuds and other headphone accessories to their owners. This makes them smaller and easier to lose while you are on the go, exercising or performing other outdoor activities. The AirPods are also not tethered to each other, meaning you could misplace just one, forcing you to shell out $70 for an individual replacement. Luckily there is now an app available that helps you locate your missing AirPods.
