Apple is expected to launch several new products this spring, but most of them would be new generations of existing models. The main exception would be the AirTag, a Tile-like object tracker with which Apple would enter a new era.
And there are growing signs that the AirTag may be coming soon. The last one is a tab that would indicate it and that was found in the Search app.
MacRumors realized that if you enter findmy: // items in the Safari address bar on an iPhone or iPad, and you agree to the page opening in search, you can enable the secret tab.
At the time of writing, we were able to replicate the process on an iPad with iPadOS 14.3 installed, which appears to be necessary for this hack to work. If you are testing it on an iPhone, iOS 14.3 will need to be installed.
The tab displays the text “Keep track of your everyday items” and gives you the option to add accessories and other items in the search app. Show examples such as keys, a backpack, and a bicycle. Obviously, none of these objects can be traced with the Find app at this time. You would need a tracker … like the AirTag.
You can also access the secret tab in macOS Big Sur 11.1, which suggests that you can use AirTag with most Apple devices.
The other day Belkin revealed that it will launch a new headset compatible with Apple’s Find app in March or April, so AirTags should be released any minute.
