The Charging Case has been improved with the addition of a U1 chip. If you misplace or lose your AirPods Pro, this article will show you how to find them.

Find My uses signals from lost AirPods to find them. The second-generation AirPods Pro Charging Case has a U1 Ultra Wideband chip that can be used to determine the distance and direction of your AirPods.

If you want to find lost AirPods Pro 2, you can use the input from the camera, accelerometer, and gyro, as well as sound and visual feedback, to find them. How to use it is explained here.

  1. If your AirPods are connected, open Settings and tap the AirPods tab just below your Apple ID, scroll down, then tap Show in Find My. If you've misplaced your AirPods earbuds along with the case, launch the Find My app and select your AirPods in the "Devices" list.
  2. Tap Find. It should say "Nearby" underneath if the Precision Finding feature is available.


  3. Now start moving around to locate your AirPods and follow the onscreen instructions. You should see an arrow pointing in the direction of the AirPods, an approximate distance telling you how far away they are, and a note if they're located on a different floor.

When you approach the AirPods, you'll get feedback from your phone and there's an audio cue to let you know you're near. As you get closer to it, the graphic on the phone will change. When you've found your AirPods and your phone is close by, it's a good idea to find exits. Ultra Wideband isn't universally supported, so Precision Finding isn't possible in some countries. The built-in speaker in the AirPods Pro 2 Charging Case allows you to use Find My to find it more easily.
