You can now lose your $549 headphones without a care in the world.

Apple has finally rolled out Find My support to its AirPods Pro and AirPods Max headphones.

As spotted by 9to5Mac, the new feature appears to have rolled out as part of the firmware updates that was released for Apple’s AirPods and Beats headphones earlier today.

Earlier today, we reported that new firmware versions are gradually rolling out for Apple’s wireless headphone products. This new software enables Find My support for AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, which Apple first teased back in June at WWDC.

With Find My support, you’ll now be able to add your AirPods Pro and AirPods Max headphones to the Find My app to keep track of where they are. This includes Apple’s Precise Location feature, Lost Mode, and the option to receive notifications when you leave your AirPods behind.

Since the feature is tied to the firmware update, you might not have it right away. There’s currently no way to manually install a firmware update, so your best bet is to keep your headphones near your iPhone and periodically check and see if you can add them to the Find My app.

While the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max support Find My, the 2nd generation AirPods do not. Apple is rumored to announce its third generation AirPods this year so, hopefully, those earbuds will support the feature.

Bottom line: AirPods Max provide a luxurious and premium headphone experience that mostly works across all of your Apple devices. They sound amazing, the ANC is even better than AirPods Pro, Spatial Audio is out of this world, and the battery lasts through a whole workday. The Smart case is ridiculous though.
