Apple Introduces AirTags, Which Find Lost Items To Which They are Attached
Now iPhone users can find items that they often misplace with Apple’s long-awaited AirTags, which are tiny tile-like devices that provide information about their locations.
AirTags, which are small circular devices with an Apple logo at their centers, can be attached to commonly-lost items, such as keys, wallets, and clothing. Via Bluetooth connectivity that is paired with iPhones and iPads and the “Find My" app, which provides step-by-step directions, iPhone users can locate their missing AirTags and the items to which they are attached.
As long as lost items are within Bluetooth’s range, users can use their "Find My" app to play a sound that will help to locate objects with AirTags.
A single AirTag tag, which is a small, water, and dust resistant disc that can be personalized with custom messages or emojis, costs $29; and a four-pack of AirTags costs $99.
For people who are tempted to “AirTag” children or other people, Apple has emphasized that the new devices are for tracking only inanimate objects: not people.
The AirTags, which Apple unveiled virtually at its annual April “Spring Loaded” event, includes privacy features that prevent using the products with people.
“We're excited to bring this incredible new capability to iPhone users with the introduction of AirTag to help them keep track of and find the important items in their lives,” said Kaiann Drance, Apple's vice president of worldwide iPhone product marketing. “With its design, unparalleled finding experience, and built-in privacy and security features, AirTag will provide customers with another way to leverage the power of the Apple ecosystem and enhance the versatility of iPhones.”
