Scenario 4: You’ve lost just the AirPods case

From here it’s on you. There is no way to find the case by the Find My app, this app will find the missing pods only, it will not work for the case. You will have to find the case on your own if you remember where you have lost the case, just went there and start finding it maybe some kind-hearted person took it from there and start searching for the person who has lost that one. If you found that guy who returns your case as it is kind to him, buy some gift for him to express your feeling.

If you want to replace one of the AirPods or the case, you can find your AirPods serial number then contact Apple support to get a replacement and help with setting it up. That Price will range from $59-$99 depending on what part of what model you need to replace and trust me it’s cheaper than buying a whole new set.
