Nearly two years after the first stray, a connected Apple tracker has finally been revealed. This small, round, flat accessory isn’t really surprising as it has leaked in recent months.
Its action is really unknown because the keychain format conspirators have already existed for such a long time. It makes it easy to track lost or stolen items. Samsung had already introduced its smart flags in January 2021 when announcing the S21s, which forced Apple to hostage.
Its AirTags work alongside the Localiser app (“Find My” in English) that allows geolocation of all of its Apple fleet products – Mac, Apple Watch and recently VanMoof S3 and X3, the Dutch company that is directly integrating the solution into its new electric bikes . The first connection is very easy and done just like the company’s other accessories, like AirPods or Apple Watch. When you turn it on for the first time, you just need to bring your AirTag near your iPhone for it to automatically detect it. After that, the settings are made from your smartphone. It then becomes possible to search for an object associated with AirTag using your iPhone. A type of compass appears on your screen and indicates the direction to follow. The process is as simple as it is effective. Note that AirTag integrates the Apple U1 chip that appeared in 2019 with the iPhone 11. However, compatibility is not limited to these models only because the company indicates that the system works on iPhones running iOS 14.5 (from l ‘iPhone 6S). So the latest version of Apple OS should be available soon.
AirTags arrive with different rubber studs to hang them everywhere, for example like a bracelet. AirTags will be available on Friday, April 30 for $ 29. Apple will sell 4 packages for $ 99.
