The presentation, which took place on April 20, 2021 by Apple, did not well for anything grandiose. Tim Cook did not show the world any new glasses or updated smartphones. Nevertheless, I was able to surprise with the presentation of the AirTag, which became a really new product.
Rumors about this new product have long appeared on the Internet. And what is most interesting, the information really turned out to be true. The mark really has almost the same abilities as intended.
Apple positions AirTag as a useful gadget that will help you find lost keys or any other things. But, whether this accessory will be popular is still not known.
It is worth considering that purchasing AirTag alone will not be enough. You will also need an additional cover, because you just can't attach the tag to the keys or something else.
In addition, the company assures that the use of AirTag does not threaten the user himself. Apple has completely taken care of security, and the connection between the smartphone and the accessory will pass through a secure channel. Thus, the user's keys or any other thing that is often lost can only be found by the user himself, and not by anyone else.
Features of the AirTag
The accessory was created to help you find your lost items. And it will be especially relevant for users who constantly lose things that are important to themselves. Moreover, there is an opportunity to make any inscription on such a label.
The tag works with NFC and Bluetooth. The search area is strictly limited to the area of work of the latter. And it is able to pick up a signal at a distance of as much as 200 meters, which is pleasantly impressive.
You can find the lost item using the Locator application.
This accessory will probably be able to fully work for one year. As for autonomy, AirTag works with a regular battery. In addition, there is a speaker inside the device. If the user searches using the Find My application, they will be able to hear a loud sound that will be emitted from AirTag.
There is also protection against water at the IP67 level. Therefore, if the keys are lost in a puddle or in any other place where there is water, you can still find them.
