Apple Approved Parts Dealers – For areas that don’t have brick & mortar sites, Apple will often certify local dealers to sell their parts for service and replacement. It’s perfectly fine to request certification from a dealer when buying Apple replacement parts.
E-Commerce Portals – Apple will also allow certain e-commerce sites and portals to service and repair their parts. This option is great for anyone that may have some traveling limitations when replacing AirPods
Finders Keepers – There are certain lucky instances where you might find a spare Apple Airpod in a random spot, or might have access to one through a friend or family member. It is possible to sync these Apple AirPod with your original one.
The Airpod Warranty
Apple offers two separate warranty options to buyers of Apple Airpods. Both of these options cover replacement for breakage or other damage, but neither of them will cover a lost Airpod.
Apple has a very user-friendly website that allows you to check the status of your warranty. Users can use the serial number on the side of their charging case as a reference to see their respective warranty.
To replace a broken Airpod, users will also need the original packaging of their AirPods, as well as their receipt of purchase.

How To Sync A New Airpod With An Old One
Once you’ve received your new Airpod, syncing requires a relatively simple process:
Locate both AirPods and make sure that they are free from dust and moisture before syncing.
Place both AirPods in the Apple charging case. Make sure to place each AirPod on its appropriate side.
Check the status light located in between the two AirPods inside the case. This light should begin to flash amber. If there is no light, try taking the AirPods out and placing them back inside. Alternatively, charge the case for a while before attempting to sync.
Push and hold the button on the case for a few seconds. The status light should change from orange to white.
A setup pop-up window should appear on your iPhone home screen. This will automatically sync your AirPods.
Test the synced devices on one of your iPhone’s music apps.
Tips For Preventing Airpod Loss
Use The Storage Case – The case is the single most reasonable place to store your AirPods, as they will also charge while inside the case and be kept free from excess moisture or dust. The case will also let you know if there are any battery or sync issues with your AirPods.
Use Clips/Tape/Hooks – Apple charging cases come with optional clips that can be hung onto a belt, a collar, or other stationary objects for safe storage. Certain users have also found ways to store their charging case using some form of small hook or tape.
Activate The ‘’Find My’’ Setting – Your Apple Airpods can be located in their charging case using the ‘’Find My’’ option in your settings menu. You will need to ensure that your AirPods are synced in this mode manually, and can then locate your AirPods using your cellphone.
Use Definitive Storing Spots– It’s healthy to get into the habit of choosing one or two common storage spots. Many users tend to simply leave their AirPods lying wherever they stop using them, and this understandably leads to them easily lost. Find a set place in your house, car, or office to stash your AirPods and charging case.
It’s also relatively simple and quick to sync a new Apple Airpod with an older one.
Users can easily synchronize their Airpods by placing them in the Apple charging case and holding the back button for a few seconds.
Lastly, there are a few basic steps that you can take to make sure that your AirPods don’t go missing. Make the charging case their home when not in use and be sure to store the charging case in some common sites.
