Hidden code in iOS 15 reveals that AirPods Max and AirPods Pro will be linked to an Apple ID to allow Find My Tracking. The update will allow users to track down misplaced AirPods even when they are not linked to another Apple device.
According to a code in iOS 15, AirPods Max and AirPods Pro will be connected to an Apple ID to facilitate Find My Tracking. Users will be able to locate misplaced AirPods even if they are not linked to another Apple device.
According to Apple’s announcement at WWDC in June, AirPods will be added to the Find My network, along with a variety of new functions such as Ambient Noise Reduction and Conversation Boost.
AirPods, like AirTag, will utilize Bluetooth to transmit their position and will be able to engage with the nearest Apple device — even if it isn’t yours. We now have a better grasp on how everything works.
How to Use AirPods to Find My Work
If this is done, the AirPods will finally be connected to your Apple ID, according to 9to5Mac, which uncovered confirmation of the change in iOS 15 code. This will allow misplaced AirPods to communicate with their owners.
AirPods will not be protected by Activation Lock in the same way that other Apple devices are. As a result, if they are found, they can be reset and used. Even if this happens, misplaced gadgets will continue to report to their original owner.
9to5Mac has discovered many animations demonstrating how to remove AirPods from the Find My network, allowing them to be used by someone else after being sold. Once the original Apple ID has been legally revoked, it is unlinked.
Before using Find My in iOS 15, AirPods will most likely require a firmware upgrade. Apple has begun beta testing new software for the AirPods Pro, which registered developers may access immediately.
In iOS and iPadOS 15, only the AirPods Max and AirPods Pro are supported by Find My and Precision Finding. The cheaper first- and second-generation AirPods will not have the same capabilities.
