Apple Clarifies How Many Items Can Be Tracked in Find My

Apple today confirmed that up to 32 items can be added to the Find My app on the iPhone and iPad, up from a previous limit of 16.

Find My AirPods Feature
Apple revealed this information in a support document updated today:

You can add up to 32 items in Find My. In addition to AirTag and the third-party Find My network accessories in the Items tab, AirPods Max count as one item, AirPods and AirPods Pro (1st generation) count as two items, and AirPods Pro (2nd generation) count as three items.

We confirmed that Apple increased the item limit starting with iOS 16 and iPadOS 16, but the change was not reflected on Apple's website until now.

Items that count towards the limit include AirTags, AirPods, newer MagSafe Wallets, select Beats headphones, third-party accessories with Find My support, and more, according to Apple. Once the items are added to the app, users can track the location of each one on a map across the iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

Some models of AirPods are considered multiple items due to each individual earbud and charging case being counted separately.

Why even the limit at all, especially for larger families?

Do items that have been shared with you count toward this limit, as well? I don't understand Apple's apprehension toward selling more AirTags/accessories.

Somebody hard-coded a 32 somewhere!
#define MAX_STUFF 32

I mean, I guess the fact so many of us are surprised means it’s not much of an issue, but it sure seems like an odd limitation, and surprisingly low. Especially if it used to be 16?

I get it but it’s still strange that the AirPod pro 2 count as 3 separate items while the AirPod Max counts as one. I guess they are counting each EarPod and the case as a separate item, I get it but still just seems off.
Makes sense at it counts left earbud, right earbud, and case as three items.
