We’ve all had that moment where we can’t find our keys and to help us in those situations, Apple have now launched a new device dubbed AirTag.
At Apple’s Spring Loaded virtual product launch yesterday (April 20), the company unveiled it’s AirTag – a small tracking device that allows users to pinpoint items.
The AirTag connects to Apple’s ‘Find My’ app and allow you to find whatever you attach it to including bags, luggage, keys and more.
When close to an iPhone, the AirTag will connect automatically via bluetooth and any item the device attaches to can have its own name. If the item gets lost, the tag will play a sound to assist you in locating it.
Speaking on the AirTag, Kaiann Drance – Apple’s vice president of Worldwide iPhone Product Marketing – said: “We’re excited to bring this incredible new capability to iPhone users with the introduction of AirTag, leveraging the vast Find My network, to help them keep track of and find the important items in their lives.
“With its design, unparalleled finding experience, and built-in privacy and security features, AirTag will provide customers with another way to leverage the power of the Apple ecosystem and enhance the versatility of iPhone.”
They connect via Bluetooth in the same way that AirPods do – just move it closer to an iPhone and it automatically connects.
When they become available to buy from April 30, the AirTag will come in packs of one and four and will cost $29 and $99 respectively.
