Apple has announced a small tracking gadget known as AirTag, which will be available later this month. The small device – which is about the size of a Galaxy Minstrel chocolate – can be attached to your wallet, keys, sunglasses, or anything else. These items will then appear in the Find My app on your iPhone or iPad. Nifty, eh?
Apple already uses Find My to allow customers to track their Apple-branded gadgets, including the iPhone, AirPods, MacBook, and iPad. The Californian company recently opened up the app to third-parties, with electric bike manufacturers – like the award-winning VanMoof – jumping at the chance to add the ability to track their bikes from within the same app.
And now, you’ll be able to keep tabs on your keys from the same app too.
Each round AirTag is built from polished stainless steel. There’s a built-in speaker, which can play sounds to help you locate a mislaid AirTag, while a removable cover makes it easy for users to replace the battery when it runs out. AirTag uses the same setup experience as AirPods – just bring AirTag close to your iPhone…
