Find My iPhone find my Apple Watch now you can find pretty much anything.
After months of waiting, Apple has finally announced the arrival of air tags Apple's answer to Bluetooth tracking devices like we've seen from tile and a new way to find non Apple objects are On your iPhone, and how do they unveil this handy new connected helper with a really weird video of a guy getting lost inside his sofa?
Whether you have a carnivorous sofa or you just lose things a lot.
Apple's air tags are being built as a way to bring the power of the find my network to pretty much anything you might want to keep track of The idea is simple.
Once you set up the button sized air tag, it'll appear in the new items tab in your find my app, the app will show you the current or last known location of your air tag.
And if you're in Bluetooth range, you can use the app to play a sound from the tags so you can find it.
The tags also feature ultra wideband technology which makes the finding process on your iPhone 11 or iPhone 12.
Even more accurate.
Using a combination of the iPhones camera accelerometer, gyroscope and AR kit, you'll be able to track down your loss tag using arrows, sound and even haptic feedback.
You can also assign a phone number to your tag meaning that anyone who finds it can tap it with their NFC enabled phone.
Find and find out your details, but the air tag is really designed for the apple ecosystem.
If you're not in Bluetooth range, that's where Apple is unleashing the power of its global find my network, which now includes close to a billion devices.
Even if no one physically finds your tag other Apple devices can detect the signal from your are tagged and relay that information back to your phone.
Anonymously and privately in the background.
And according to Apple, that privacy element was really important for our tags.
The company says IOS will be able to detect if an air tag isn't with its owner and notify someone if it looks like they're being followed by an unknown tag.
Apple also says that only the owner of a device is able to access the location information.
It's an interesting time to launch add tags.
For many of us, the past year hasn't really involved a lot of venturing out of the house and losing things in fun new places.
Apple also, just opened up the find my network, to third party hardware.
Including the likes of the one spot tracker from chipolo, which does pretty much the same job that air tags do.
Still, it's pretty exciting to see the convenience of the find my feature coming to more items in our everyday lives.
Apple's air tags are $29 each or $99 for a pack of four, and they can be customised with free engraving.
They're also available with a number of accessories like leather and poly urethane loops and a leather key ring for attaching to your bag or luggage.
They are dust resistant, water resistant and seemingly monster couch proof and they're built with replaceable batteries that should last you about a year.
Apple air tags go on preorder on April 23 with availability starting April 30.
