Apple has quietly increased the number of devices users can track with its Find My app, doubling the previous limit from 16 to 32 devices.

This change was first discovered by Nicolas Alveraz (@nicolas09F9) in an Apple support document as reported by TechViral from Gizmochina, Tuesday (16/1/2024).

These updated limits apply to a wider range of devices than before, including AirTags, Apple headphones (including some Beats models), newer MagSafe wallets, and even third-party Find My network accessories like e-bikes.

It’s worth noting that some AirPods models count as multiple items in Find My. Regular AirPods and first-generation AirPods Pro count as two items, while second-generation AirPods Pro count as three items due to their ability to track the charging case individually.

This tracking limit increase likely addresses concerns from some users who hit the previous 16-item limit quickly, especially with the introduction of AirTags and the expansion of the Find My network to third-party devices.

Adding new devices to Find My remains easy. For example, add an AirTag by holding it to your iPhone, tapping the pop-up that appears, choosing a name, then registering it with your Apple ID.

The limits of the updated My Find feature are currently visible in Apple’s support documents, but have not been officially announced by the company. Nonetheless, this is a welcome change for users who rely on the Find My network to track their stuff.
