Apple announced the widespread speculation at its first event in 2021 AirTag, an accessory that is useful for keeping track of things and finding items using AppleFind My App.
The AirTag can be attached to a handbag, keys, backpack or other items, the company said in a press release.
Each AirTag is small and lightweight and has a circular design with a removable cover that can be easily removed. Customers can personalize AirTag with a free engraving, including text and a choice of 31 emoji, upon purchase.
The AirTag has a built-in speaker that plays a tone to help users find the location. It also has an IP67 rating, making it both waterproof and dustproof.
For these AirTags, Apple has also added a wide range of Apple-designed accessories, including the polyurethane loop, leather loop and leather key ring, and much more.
According to Apple, just like the AirPods, AirTag can be connected to an iPhone by bringing it close to the iPhone to automatically connect. Then users can assign a custom name to different AirTags, e.g. B. “Key” or “Jacket”.
Apple AirTag price and availability in India
Apple has priced AirTag at Rs 3,190. For those who may be interested in purchasing multiple AirTags, the company offers a pack of 4 for Rs 10,900. Interested buyers will be able to purchase AirTag starting April 30th at apple.com and through Apple Authorized Resellers.
How does Apple AirTag work?
Once set up, the AirTag will appear on the New Items tab in the My Search app, which allows users to view the item’s current or last known location on a map. If a user misplaces their item and it’s within Bluetooth range, they can use the Find My app to play a sound from the AirTag to help them find it. Users can also ask Siri to find their item, and AirTag will sound a tone if it’s nearby.
According to Apple, AirTag comes with a U1 chip that uses Ultra Wideband technology that allows iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 series users to find precise locations. “This advanced technology can more accurately determine the distance and direction to a lost AirTag if it is in range. When a user moves, the precision search merges inputs from the camera, ARKit, accelerometer and gyroscope and then feeds it to AirTag using a combination of sound, haptics and visual feedback, ”the company said.
If a user loses their AirTag, they can also be put into lost mode and notified when they are in range or found by the extensive Find My network. If someone finds a lost AirTag, they can tap it with their iPhone or NFC-enabled device and be redirected to a website that will display a contact phone number for the owner, if they provided one.
