Apple AirTag is one of the company’s controversial products in the recent past, the device can be used for abuse and there have been many problems with it. But it’s also a useful product because it provides a technology-based solution for those who get lost all the time or often.
When the AirTag is attached to an item, such as a luggage bag or a keychain, the user can easily track those items through their Apple iPhone or other signed-in Apple device. Once you’ve set up the device, all you have to do is attach it to an item and the company claims the battery lasts over a year.
AirTag sends a secure Bluetooth signal containing location data that can be found by other devices on the Apple Device Finder network. The data is then transferred to iCloud, allowing the user to see the location of the tracker in the Find My app.
In this step by step guide, we will show you how to track a lost item using AirTag on your Apple iPhone through the Find My app.
