What to do When you Lose or Break your Apple Airpods | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter

One of the more interesting features of 2016's iPhone 7 was the missing headphone jack. Apple, in their infinite wisdom, decided to go wireless and the Airpods were born.

The fear for the Airpods were that they could easily go missing despite coming with a convenient storage case with some magnetic security features, making it slightly more difficult to lose one, or both, of the untethered ‘Pods. The case also doubles as an recharging station, allowing for convenient power-ups on the go. 

Of course they will get lost at some point (not for everyone, but a fair few) and while they can be replaced, they are certainly not cheap.

The Airpods are protected by a one-year warranty. Service for any AirPods with diminished battery capacity within said time frame will be free. Battery maintenance that falls outside this one-year warranty period will run you $49(N15,500) and the cost for replacing a lost AirPod or AirPod charging case will set you back a cool $69 (around N22,000).

In case your situation is slightly different and you need to only replace your AirPod case, an individual earbud, or both AirPods you can either go to the Apple Store (obviously) the other option is to go to a third-party retailer (not as advisable) but they will probably replace your earbuds if they fall under warranty. 

Another option is to contact Apple Support. This requires you to provide the serial number for your product. This is the best option if you do not live relatively close to an Apple Store. You can also utilize Apple Support in tandem with the Apple’s Express Replacement policy for added convenience. You'd have to first determine that your product still falls under warranty before doing this however. If you’re eligible, Apple will ship a replacement AirPod or AirPod case to a designated location of your own choosing. You’ll just need to mail the defective product to Apple within 10 days of Apple’s shipping date.

So with this, hopefully you're not as scared of losing your Airpods.
