Despite the initial outrage when Apple unveiled its iPhone 7 without a headphone jack in 2016, Apple fans have flocked to its wireless audio solution: AirPods. Now in its second iteration, these fully wireless earbuds have quickly become just as iconic as the wired version they have replaced ̵
While the latest version brings some improvements to the table, there is one that Apple cannot improve: the risk that one of the two pods loses, or even the Wireless Charging Case itself. Fortunately, losing one of these pieces is not the end of the world – everything up to the Lightning cable can be replaced. Unfortunately, that luxury will cost you a lot …
If you need to replace your AirPod case, individual earbuds, or both AirPods, you have a few options at your disposal. You can go to the Apple Store or to the third-party vendor – i.e., Target, Walmart – where you purchased your AirPods. However, this last will is only required to replace or maintain it if they are covered by the legal warranty period.
If the seller for any reason fails to comply with your warranty, try going to the Apple Store.
You can Also contact Apple Support, although you need to know the serial number of your product. This is the best option if you do not live relatively close to an Apple Store. You can also use Apple Support in combination with Apple's Express replacement policy for added convenience. Contact Apple Support first and they will help you determine if your product is still covered by the warranty. If you qualify, Apple will send a replacement AirPod or AirPod cover to your chosen location. You only need to ship the defective product within 10 days of the Apple shipping date.
