The app will show you the AirPod's current location, as well as provide directions to it. You can also use the app to play a sound on the AirPod if it's nearby an Apple device and connected to Bluetooth.

Saving battery

If you're looking for a truly wireless experience, you'll be glad to know that one AirPod can work on its own as a Bluetooth headset. Keep the other one in the case to charge, and then swap as needed. This means you can use it to take calls or listen to music without having to worry about running out of battery mid-conversation.

Once you've done that, you'll be able to use the Live Listen feature by putting in your AirPods and opening Control Center on your iPhone. Then, choose the Hearing icon and tap on Live Listen.

Siri makes life easy

With Siri, you can easily have your AirPods read your incoming messages aloud to you as without lifting a finger. You can also reply to the message with a simple voice command - how convenient! To turn on the feature, open the Settings app and go to Notifications. Then, scroll down to Announce Messages with Siri and flip the switch to the ON position.

If you want to reply to the message, simply say "Reply" and then dictate your response. Once you're done talking, Siri will either read the message back to you for confirmation or will directly send the message, depending on your settings.
