Hello guys…!! We all know apple produces lots of products which are kind of expensive. Nowadays Apple became a symbol of royalty in our society it becomes a superior Brand. They never cease to produce expensive products. Among Apple products for some of them, we couldn’t decide whether it comes under essential or not. We are going to see about one of those products and that’s Apple AIRTAG.
What is Apple AirTag
Let’s try to recognize from the name itself-
- AIR– Air has always been an identity to some of Apple’s products like Apple iPad Air, MacBook Air. In the same way, they named this product.
- TAG– Tag which generally means tagging something which is an usual word.
which gives us some sense that AirTags are used to tag your products.” Airtag is a simple small round button-like gadget that can be used to tag your belongings”.
What exactly an Airtag itself is
Well, it’s a 1.2-inch of D- plastic puck with stainless steel back, And that back piece can actually be removed by applying pressure and rotating left. Inside, you’ll find a replaceable coin-cell battery like those found in watches, However you never need to charge or replace it ofter because that’ll keep AirTag powered for over a year.
Once it dies, just replace it with a fresh battery. No charging required and there’s also technology inside AirTag, that is not visble such as speaker, Bluetooth, and Apple’s U1 chip everything is inbuild. After unboxing AirTag, the first thing you’ll do is connect it to your iPhone 6s or later, by holding it nearby, then tapping the connect button. Finally, name your AirTag so you’ll know which item it’s attached to.
Uses of Apple-Airtag:
Moreover, in short, an AirTag is just a tiny tracking device that helps in tracking your product which you had missed even a mile away. You can use it in things such as a school bag, Office bag, in your purse, or on your keys as a keychain. For instance, the next time you inevitably misplace any of those items, you can easily track them down.
How exactly Apple- AirTag works:
After you put it in a book bag, in your purse, or on your keys, and If something is lost or left behind, you’ll navigate to the Find My application on your iPhone, and tap the items tab. Here, you’ll see all your connected AirTags. If the item you’re looking for is nearby, for example, keys that are somewhere in the house, you can ping its AirTag by tapping “Play sound.” This sent out an auditory noise that’ll give you a good idea of its location and you can simply follow the sound to find the item. But there’s a more intuitive method to locating nearby items that’ll only work for users with an iPhone 11 or 12 and it’s called Precision Finding.
Just tap the find button under your item, and your iPhone will begin searching for the AirTag’s signal. This can take about 30 seconds and may require you to move around the area if the signal is weak, but once you’re within 30 to 40 feet of the AirTag and it locks on, your iPhone will literally point you in the right direction.
Green means go.
Black means you aren’t quite on the right path.
It’ll even notify you if the airtag is on a different floor. As you move closer, you’ll see the distance shrink. Once the iPhone is about four inches away, likely close enough to find your item, the word “here” will appear on the iPhone.
Is Apple Airtag’s Range is unlimited?
Let’s say the item you’re trying to locate isn’t nearby.
For example- What if you left your bag somewhere after a busy day running errands?
Well, this is where the Branded”Apple magic” comes in.
- AirTags can actually post their location to your Find My app through nearby iPhones. It sends out a Bluetooth signal that’s captured by a stranger’s iOS device that happens to be with range, and then reported straight to you. All without that person even knowing it happened. It’s completely secure, anonymous, and encrypted And it’s efficient so it doesn’t effect that person’s battery life or data usage.
- That means the dreaded “offline” message that plagues most lost devices won’t be an issue with AirTag. So you’ll be able to locate your item on a map and track it down. But if, for some reason, the location of your AirTag hasn’t been updated yet, you can put it into Lost Mode. Which’ll send you a notification once it’s been located by a nearby iOS device. You can even set up AirTags to give someone your contact information if they scan it.
Scan with Find My App
Iphone users can do this by using the Find My app, tapping items, and then identify found item. While Android users can also help out by simply tapping their NFC-enabled phone to the AirTag, which’ll open a website link giving them information to contact the owner.
If your AirTag happens to get splashed, rained on or left in a puddle, you don’t have to worry since it’s water resistant up to 1 meter. Apple also prevented AirTags from being used maliciously.
For example– If an AirTag is secretly being dropped in your bag or purse to try and track you.
This is where Apple’s another magic comes into action. They do this magic by tracking how long an AirTag has been traveling close to someone after leaving its owner. Eventually, that person’s iPhone will receive a notification saying an AirTag is nearby. If they can’t find it, it’ll begin playing a sound continuously. And if you’re wondering how this works if you’re an Android user being tracked by someone else’s AirTag, it doesn’t work. So you’ll just have to keep an eye out for suspicious-looking Apple users. So that is how Apple’s AirTags work,
