Apple AirTag specs, price in the Philippines
Apple expands its Find My ecosystem with the new AirTag. It is an iPhone accessory that helps keep track of and find items using Apple’s Find My app.
The Apple AirTag is a small circular device that can be attached to various items such as a handbag, keys, backpack, and the like. It can help locate them while keeping location data private and anonymous with end-to-end encryption.
Each round AirTag is small and lightweight, features precision-etched polished stainless steel, and is IP67 water- and dust-resistant. A built-in speaker plays sounds to help locate AirTag, while a removable cover makes it easy for users to replace the CR2032 coin cell battery. Besides, it features the same setup experience as AirPods — when it is close to an iPhone; it will connect. Users may also assign AirTag to each item and provide a custom name.
The AirTag is equipped with the Apple-designed U1 chip using Ultra-Wideband technology, enabling Precision Finding for iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 users. As per Apple, this advanced technology can more accurately determine the distance and direction to a lost AirTag when it is in range.
Furthermore, users can also place AirTag into Lost Mode and be notified when it is in range or located by the vast Find My network. The company mentioned that if someone finds a lost AirTag, they can tap it using their iPhone or any NFC-capable device and be taken to a website that will display a contact phone number for the owner in case they have provided one.
Once AirTag is set up, it can be found in the new Items tab in the Find My app, where users can view the item’s current or last known location on a map. If ever users misplace their item and it is within Bluetooth range, they can use the Find My app to play a sound from the AirTag to help locate it. On the other hand, users can also ask Siri to find their item, and AirTag will play a sound if it is nearby.
For security, the AirTag is designed from the ground up to keep location data private and secure. This means no location data or location history is physically stored inside AirTag. Communication with the Find My network is end-to-end encrypted that only the owner of a device has access to its location data. Apple mentioned that no one, including Apple, knows the identity or location of any device that helped find it.
Additionally, customers may personalize AirTag with free engraving, including text and a selection of 31 emoji, when purchasing from the apple website or the Apple Store app. Users may easily place AirTag into a bag or pocket on their own or use a wide range of Apple-designed AirTag accessories, including the Polyurethane Loop, which is both lightweight and durable, and the Leather Loop and Leather Key Ring, featuring specially tanned European leather.
The Apple AirTag is compatible with iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 14.5 or later or iPad running iPadOS 14.5 or later.
