How AirTags Work

Apple recently introduced AirTags, and if you aren’t familiar with item trackers, you may not understand the point of this $29 white plastic puck. They are similar to a product called Tile, but offer many advantages like Ultra-Wide band technology thanks to Apple's custom U1 chip, and a built-in speaker. So what exactly are AirTags? And more importantly, how do they work if you decide to buy one? Well that's exactly what I'll be explaining in this video about Apple's new AirTags.

      Apple's their privacy tracking technology. Why not open it to competition? Nope, we want to force people to buy apple phones instead... I had an expensive iphone with crappy camera, then changed to Samsung and never looked back.

      It probably won’t work if you filter out your web traffic with a firewall or have data turned off. From what I’ve read, most smart devices “phone home” several times per hour to validate location or just collect user data in an ominous way. I’m sure if you care enough, you’ll find a way to know for sure.

    Be interesting to read the user agreement on an iPhone to see where it says you agree to pass on someone else's location information through your phone lol Makes you wonder what the hell else is hidden in that agreement.

    My iPhone 5c has no sim card and it is on Airplane mode but it can locate where I go, how did I know? because of the Foursquare Swarm App, once I connected on WiFi, all the places that I've been to, shows up. Like telling me, that I went to that store, restaurant or any landmark that I went through 😅 Now because of airtag, I know why I experienced that, because of that freaking technology. ✌️😂

    How does it work if for example, you put an AirTag in your power tool bag, and it gets stolen, and he starts driving away with it. Would the thief get a notification that an AirTag is following nearby, and then he would get an alert (assuming he has an Iphone also) on his own phone?

  • its fissy

    Why cant they implement this tech into an actual iphone? So that way when your iphone is lost or stolen, it pings the findmyiphone server through others user devices and you get a notifticon of were your phone is. This would help end robbers forever

    If an Apple user steals something of yours though, they will be told that they are being tracked and then they will disable the AirTag -which renders them useless to me

    Lets say I get an Airbag for my car and then a robber with an iPhone steals my car with my Airtag in it, will the Airtag starts beeping or what because from what I understood from that part you mention if somebody puts an AirTag on you with ought knowing if will Strat beeping after sometime near the iPhone. I think Apple could do something regarding Airtags in the cars and for car tracking purposes, maybe if the robber has an iPhone and after sometime it will not beep IDK... :/

    The thing that makes airtags better than tile or that Samsung tracker ( i forgot the name sorry) is that it has extra features that other trackers don't have like precision tracking and because of the apple ecosystem it can use other peoples iPhone to update its location to you

    If I put the tracker in my cycle and it gets robbed…
    The robber will get a notification on its iPhone saying a tracker is near by as he is taking the bike and it’s going to be with him…
    So they will know they are being tracked and will quickly take the tracker out or sell the bike

    *Prayers and well-wishes are also very much appreciated. 😇❤*

    Off-topic, I know... I hope you understand the desperation. I know some people need more help than me and my family but I do hope that does not invalidate my cry for help. 😢 

    Things are getting worse here. We don't have stimulus checks or anything like USA. So I'm just really doing whatever I can to put food on the table. We may not be killed by the virus but the situation is surely slowly killing us. 💔 

    *Peace be with you. ❤ GOD bless. 🙏❤*

    *And to anyone who's also struggling, let's hold on tight. All will soon be well. 🌹*

    You know the iPhone could utilize the same technology just with a software update by transmitting Bluetooth it could connect to others iPhone users and the owner be able to find it even if someone took off there celular chip and with a hardware update the Bluetooth could work even if the iPhone is not one I mean the ultra low battery Bluetooth and the price of the iPhone would go up after all you would be secure that your iPhone couldn’t get stolen plus overtime people would not still then because is not worth the trouble
