The launch of the new Apple AirTag trackers has been one of the most anticipated in recent times, as it is an innovative and affordable product that will make our daily life easier to avoid the loss of objects or locate them.
Compact in size, Apple AirTags They allow you to always have your keys, wallet, purse, purse and much more at your fingertips because it allows us to find them instantly and accurately. However, what are the most used uses? We will tell you.
Attach an AirTag to your dog’s collar
Anytime you can find a collar that fits an AirTag, you need to put one on your dog. This is something Apple does not recommend, as its purpose is not to use them with pets or people, but it will help keep it in check on night walks when visibility is poor.
Alternatively, any keychain accessory, such as Belkin, it might work if you put it on the loop. If your dog likes to dive in puddles, know that the AirTags are waterproof according to the IP67 certification (up to one meter of water for half an hour).
Attach an AirTag to your child’s coat
It’s completely understandable that parents consider using an AirTag as a way to track the whereabouts of their children. You can try slipping one into your backpack or coat pocket and have the peace of mind of knowing where it is (or at least you won’t lose your coat for the third time!).
Just keep in mind that there may be times when the AirTag signal is not being picked up, so you shouldn’t be more afraid than necessary. The AirTag is based on a network of Bluetooth devices including iPhones and Macs, but in schools there may not be that many devices.
In any case, we suggest that for using it with people, you always ask for your child’s consent so that they can be tracked. This can be very useful for field trips or through the mountains.
No, do not use AirTag with your partner
Obviously, this is considered to be an invasion of privacy, unless, of course, you have requested prior authorization and are also monitoring it for a specific security-related reason.
A better solution would be to use the “Search” application, which allows you to track people through their iPhone, provided they give their consent. If you open the “Search” app and click “People”, you can choose to “Share my location” with any of your contacts.
You can choose to “Share for an hour, Share until the end of the day, or Share indefinitely”. That person will receive an alert that you are sharing your location with them and can choose to approve it.
If you are concerned that your spouse may be using an AirTag to track you, be aware that any AirTag that is not registered should display a message on your iPhone screen such as “AirTag found moving with you”.
Use an AirTag to track seniors
In the same way as what has been commented on in the previous cases, you must ask for the express permission of the person in question, or give it to someone who has that authority. Naturally, people want to find an elderly relative living alone or with senile dementia.
As in the previous example, if they have an iPhone, they will receive a notification that there is an AirTag with them, and if they are away from you for more than three days, the tag will start making noise. .
The latter was done with the idea of preventing it from being used as a tracker without people’s consent, if the person you’re trying to protect isn’t living with you.
However, it’s not just the people you plan to follow. The most obvious reason to buy a tracker like AirTag is to keep track of things you always lose, like your car keys, purse, or your TV remote.
Using the AirTag with the remote control
Who hasn’t lost their TV remote control at some point? You can use an AirTag and stick it to the bottom to keep it under control at all times. It will never disappear again between the folds of the sofa or in the shallow depths.
Add an AirTag to your wallet or purse
As long as your purse or wallet isn’t very thin, you should be able to place an AirTag in it, either where the coins are kept or in one of the sections where credit cards usually go. You will never lose your wallet again!
Use an AirTag with your bag or backpack
Have a AirTag in your bag, a backpack or a suitcase can be a good option, because if you are one of those who take it everywhere with you, you will avoid leaving it forgotten anywhere or leaving without it. It will also follow your suitcase on the go to prevent theft or theft.
Attach an AirTag to your keys
This is by far the most obvious use of an AirTag, which is why Apple offers a large number of AirTag key chains as part of its accessory offering. If you have a AirTag on your keychain, you will never lose your keys and never leave them on the front door.
Leave an AirTag in your car
Yes, AirTags are also very useful in locating the car and knowing where you parked it, despite the fact that there are some very effective apps that do a great job on this task.
One of the most useful features of AirTag is that if you have an iPhone 11 or higher, you can use “Precision Search” to locate your AirTag. Whether that would work in a parking lot remains to be seen.
There are limits: the maximum range of Bluetooth is around 100 meters and the range of Ultra Wideband technology, which is also included in the AirTag, is around 80 meters. However, it works great over short distances.
Therefore, it may not help you find your car if you do not pass it nearby. Even if the instructions aren’t precise, you should still be able to see an approximate location for your AirTag in the “Find” app.
Track a thief with an AirTag
Putting an AirTag inside any valuables that you would like to recover in the event of theft would be a good idea, as long as you are careful and don’t face thieves at all times.
Having an AirTag in your car or bag can allow you to track it in the event of theft, so the location information would certainly be of use to the police in trying to find the offender.
Using the AirTag with your electric bike or scooter
Adding an AirTag to your bike can be great for the same reason, even better if the AirTag’s presence deters thieves from stealing it. The same results in another valuables such as your scooter or valuables.
As an important fact, the only limit you will encounter is that you can only have a maximum of 16 AirTags associated with your Apple ID, so don’t get carried away by the initial impulse to put AirTags on anything that moves.
You already know that the price of a unit is 35 $, whereas if you opt for the pack of 4 AirTags, the price will be 119 $. All of them can be recorded for free with a combination of emojis, text and numbers for easy use.
