What covers stolen AirPods?

Answered by Michael Wilson

When it comes to lost or stolen AirPods, it’s important to understand what is covered and what is not covered by AppleCare+ for Headphones. Unfortunately, AppleCare+ does not cover lost or stolen AirPods. This means that if you have lost one or both of your AirPods, or if they have been stolen, you will need to purchase a replacement.

If you have lost just one AirPod, you have the option to buy a replacement for either the left or right AirPod. Apple offers individual AirPods for sale, so you don’t have to buy a whole new set if you only need to replace one. The replacement AirPod will be new, ensuring that you have a fully functioning pair once again.

Similarly, if you have lost your AirPods Charging Case, you can also purchase a replacement for that. The Charging Case is an essential component of the AirPods, as it not only charges them but also provides a convenient storage solution. Having a replacement Charging Case will allow you to continue using and charging your AirPods without any issues.

It’s worth mentioning that when you purchase a replacement AirPod or Charging Case, it will not be covered under AppleCare+ for Headphones. The warranty or coverage you had for your original AirPods will not transfer to the replacement. However, Apple does offer a limited warranty for its products, so you will still have some protection in case of any manufacturing defects or issues with the replacement AirPod or Charging Case.

In terms of the process for purchasing a replacement, you can visit your nearest Apple Store or contact Apple Support for assistance. They will guide you through the necessary steps and provide you with the options available for replacing your lost or stolen AirPods or Charging Case.

While it is unfortunate to lose or have your AirPods stolen, it’s important to take precautions to prevent such situations. Keeping your AirPods in a secure place when not in use, using a case or pouch for added protection, and being mindful of your surroundings can all help reduce the risk of losing or having your AirPods stolen.

If you have lost or had your AirPods stolen, AppleCare+ for Headphones does not cover the replacement. However, you can purchase individual AirPods or a Charging Case as replacements. It’s important to be cautious and take preventive measures to avoid such situations in the future.
