    Find My Phone showing missing airpod-img_9642.jpgi noticed my right AirPod was missing! I don’t remember using it recently or even having it at Disney but it’s showing nearby! I’m trying to find it, play sound something but can I do just one? I keep hearing my left which is in the case! I did do lost mode! Not sure what to do! 🤷🏽*♀️

    I do not think it is possible to locate an AirPod individually, but I hope I am wrong.
    The screenshot makes it clear it’s the right AirPod. This makes it even more difficult to answer

    Keep the left airpod in the case and case is closed. On FindMy, press your AirPods. Press ‘directions’ to get you as on top of the location of that right AirPod as possible. go back one screen, and you will see “Play Sound”. When you hit play sound it gives you three buttons: Left - Stop - Right. Press Right (obviously :-) ). A sound will play from the right AirPods Pro, AirPods 3 and I believe ? AirPods 2 (I think ??? you’re SOL if they are OG AirPods). Don’t play the sound until you’re relatively certain you’re very nearby it. Save the juice in the battery. Note, it may automatically start playing the sound for the lost AirPod.

    If the area of your lost Airpod is quiet, you’ll hear it from 25 to 30 feet away, maybe more with sharp ears….. if it is quiet. If it was lost in a 24 hour casino or in a sawmill, your ear will need to be almost right next to it. This is also assuming it’s not under a folded towel or under a couch cushion that muffles the sound. Just as close to it as possible.

    Get on this PDQ! I honestly don’t know how long out of the case an Airpod will keep juice in the battery. I’d assume this, this is ‘Mission Impossible:Airpod’, your mission gives ??? say 48 hours. Once the battery in that AirPods is dead your mission is over. That AirPod will only be found by old school FindMy (seeing it with your eyes).

    One last suggestion, if you don’t find it with playing sound. It may be worth playing a sound every hour 5 or 6 times. Then call establishments around right AirPod last location. Maybe someone heard it and dropped it off at lost and found at the business it was found in.
    Best of luck.

    Ugh! I wish I had seen your post! We’re gone! And I just got them prime day! 🤦🏽*♀️ Pros! Actually I usually only use one if I do when I walk my puppy and if I’m taking a call but it’s nice to have options! I guess I’m in the market….

    Sorry to hear that blessed2. It still may be worth calling any business nearby last location reported. A good hearted person may have found it and gave it to lost and found. It’ll be much cheaper to pay for shipping it to you than replacement. A single airpod pro replacement is 90 dollars. You can open a case with support to get the replacement here:
    https://support.apple.com/airpods/repair/service (Scroll down to replace a lost airpod).

    If you prefer to just buy a new set outright, IMHO hold out until late September. Odds are good AirPods Pro 2 will be introduced. While It’ll be FULL price, it is likely this new generation will be a substantial upgrade. At that time you can probably sell your existing case for 40$ (maybe less, maybe more).

    Best of luck…
