Apple AirTags - This is really a Tile on steroids £29 for 1 £99 for 4

Posted 26th Apr 2021
Just launched last week these can be collected from an Apple store this Friday, otherwise you need to check for a deliver date.

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.

Get by with a little help from hundreds of millions of friends.When youʼve 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 itʼs efficient, so thereʼs 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.

Just remember these little tags DO NOT come with a holder nor do they have a hole to fit on your keyring, you have to buy a holder to slot them into, Apple kindly sell them ranging from £35 to £399 YES you heard right, I can see some tags being left and the holders nicked! selections here apple.com/uk/…tagBUT you can get similar on AliExpress for £4 or so with postage.
