What is Apple AirTag? What does Apple's AirTag do?

AirTag is a tracking device developed by Apple. AirTag is designed to act as a key finder, which helps people find personal objects (e.g. keys, bags, apparel, small electronic devices, vehicles).

If someone else's AirTag finds its way into your stuff, your iPhone will notice it's traveling with you and send you an alert. After a while, if you still haven't found it, the AirTag will start playing a sound to let you know it's there.

Apple AirTag is nearly perfect even as a first-generation accessory. It serves a useful purpose and should lower stress levels for anyone who makes it a habit of losing keys and other small items.

You can receive a single AirTag that costs $29 and a package of the same costs an amount of $99. 

Apple also markets lightweight and durable AirTag accessories. To make it easily portable, the accessories get better designed with a polyurethane loop. You can pick the suitable accessories of your choice. To name a few accessories with which it is easily attachable are wallets and keys. Hence the Apple AirTag price doesn’t include the cost of accessories. These are not included within the main and they have to pay it separately. 

The cons of AirTag?

  • No Android compatibility.
  • No way to ping a phone from the tag.
  • No hole for a lanyard or keyring.
  • Anti-stalking features are limited.

AirTag Battery life 

Your AirTag battery life should last for around one year, depending on your usage. The battery is replaceable with another CR2032 lithium coin battery. To replace the battery, unscrew the silver cap from the AirTag, swap batteries, and screw the cap back in place.

You don't have to charge your AirTag, nor do you have to throw it away once the battery dies. Instead, after about a year of daily use, you can replace the battery in under 30 seconds.
