Since Apple took away our headphone jacks, all we have left to lose is our wireless AirPods… literally.
While Apple’s wireless AirPods for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus may look cool, there’s no denying the small, ear-sized speakers have the potential to get lost easily. That is why an app called Finder for AirPods was created to remedy the issue, but just when we thought all our problems had been solved, Apple mustered up the ‘courage’ to remove the app from the App Store.
The app, which cost $3.99, had the ability to inform users of their lost AirPod’s location by measuring the Bluetooth signal strength and leading them to it making our lives a whole lot easier.
Finder for AirPods sounds like a dream come true for careless AirPod owners, but the creator of the app said it was deemed inappropriate for the App Store because Apple reportedly disliked the idea of people being able to locate their AirPods, according to MacRumors.
Though the app had some flaws when it came to lost AirPod proximity, and its reported “You’re getting closer” and “It’s around here” hints could get a bit frustrating, we have a feeling using the app would be a lot more fun than paying $69 to purchase replacement AirPods.
