And finally Apple's much-talked about AirTag arrives. Are you among those who often lose sight of things? With AirTag you will no longer have problems finding keys, wallet and everything you are afraid of forgetting around.
Clip one to the keys, put another in your backpack and go: here they appear in the app "Where is it", the same one you already use to locate Apple devices and track down friends and family.
Have you lost your wallet? No problem with AirTag. Open the new Objects panel of the “Where is” app and play the speaker built into the AirTag. Or you can simply say: "Hey Siri, find my wallet". If it is nearby, for example under the sofa or in the next room, just follow the sound to find it.
If you have left something in a distant place, for example in the park or in the gym, you can still locate your AirTag using the network “Where is“: It is made up of hundreds of millions of iPhones, iPads and Macs around the world, and is a system designed to keep privacy safe at all times.
Your AirTag sends a secure Bluetooth signal that can be detected by the devices of the "Where is" network closer. These devices send the location of the AirTag to iCloud: when you open the Find My app, you will see it on the map. The whole operation takes place anonymously and encrypted, to protect privacy. And it's super efficient too, so you don't have to worry about running out of battery or running out of data.
Orders depart April 23 at 14pm. You can only buy it from Apple and also make a free engraving. The cost is € 35 per unit but you can buy 4 for € 119.
