Over the course of their short lifespan, Apple’s new trackers have been put to the test several times. Especially to determine the accuracy of the main action they promise: locating targets. Taking their function precisely, some users wanted to check their durability. Yes indeed, a frozen AirTag played in a new challenge.
According to Apple specifications, AirTags are dust and water resistant. And while that doesn’t at any time clarify how well they can withstand high temperatures, for some reason one user decided analyze the durability of a frozen AirTag one after a wash and spin process
AirTags show what they’re made of
The curious experience was shared by CNET.
To find out how resistant its components are, CNET also put its AirTag on ice for a few hours, causing water to enter the battery compartment.. Plus, the AirTags went through a 54-minute wash and spin cycle and were even available to be positioned while the machine was running. After washing it worked the same as before.
Finally, organized a drop test. By attaching an AirTag to a pair of keys housed in a Spigen leather keyring, they were dropped 10 times from different heights on rough cobblestones. After the drops, the Apple logo on the stainless steel side had some scratches, but it still worked perfectly.
After these three extreme experiences, AirTags have surely answered some questions about their resistance, in particular taking into account the constant use to which they are exposed.
