One of the biggest problems for Apple’s AirPods is finding them if you lose one down the back of a couch. A $3.99 app that launched last week named “Finder for AirPods” aimed to fix this problem, but Apple, for some reason, has objected, The Verge reports.
The app used the AirPods’ Bluetooth signal to track them down, telling users they were warmer or colder the signal increased or decreased in strength. It is a pretty inaccurate mechanism for locating a small object like an earbud, but, it’s better than nothing. The alternative? Paying $69 for a replacement.
If you already purchased the app, you can request a refund through iTunes.
The Verge says they’ve reached out to Apple to find out why it removed the app, and promised to update on the topic.
