Lose your knack for losing things.
Air Tag 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 Air Tag 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 couch or in the next room — just follow the sound and your search is over.
How does it work?
Your Air Tag 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, Air Tag 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 Air Tag with an NFC-capable smartphone — that’s the same technology that lets people pay for things with their phones.
Privacy is built in.
Only you can see where your Air Tag is. Your location data and history are never stored on the Air Tag itself. Devices that relay the location of your Air Tag also stay anonymous, and that location data is encrypted every step of the way. So not even Apple knows the location of your Air Tag or the identity of the device that helps find it.
