AirTag is a super-easy way to keep track of your stuff. Attach one to your keys, slip another in your backpack. And just like that, they’re on your radar in the Find My app, where you can also track down your Apple devices and keep up with friends and family.
Ping it. Find it.
Misplacing something like your wallet doesn’t have to be a big deal when it has AirTag attached. You can play a sound on the built-in speaker by going to the new Items tab in the Find My app, or say “Hey Siri, find my wallet.” If it’s hiding nearby — like under the sofa or in the next room — just follow the sound and your search is over.
Cold. Warm. Warmer. Hot.
If your AirTag is nearby, your iPhone can lead you straight to it with Precision Finding.1 You’ll see the distance to your AirTag and the direction to head in — all thanks to Ultra Wideband technology.
Precision Finding is compatible with:
iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max
iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini
iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max
Get by with a little help from hundreds of millions of friends.
When you?ve left something far behind, like at the beach or the gym, the Find My network — hundreds of millions of iPhone, iPad and Mac devices around the world — helps track down your AirTag. And it is designed to protect your privacy every step of the way.
How does it work?
Your AirTag sends out a secure Bluetooth signal that can be detected by nearby devices in the Find My network. These devices send the location of your AirTag to iCloud — then you can go to the Find My app and see it on a map. The whole process is anonymous and encrypted to protect your privacy. And it?s efficient, so there?s no need to worry about battery life or data usage.
Lost Mode makes finding things even easier.
Just like your other Apple devices, AirTag can be put into Lost Mode. Then when it’s detected by a device in the network, you’ll automatically get a notification. You can also set it so someone can get your contact info by tapping your AirTag with an NFC-capable smartphone — that’s the same technology that lets people pay for things with their phone.
Long live the battery.
AirTag is designed to keep going for more than a year on a standard battery you can easily replace. And your iPhone lets you know when it?s time to pop in a new one.
Let’s say you’ve tagged your keys and — oops — you drop them in a puddle. Or they’re in the path of a colossal spill. Well that’s OK. Your AirTag is water resistant.
