I bought this as a gift for my mom. She is 69 year old going on 26 - and living her very best life. She is currently on a bicycle tour along the Rhône river that will lead into a hiking adventure through the French countryside and finish off with a train ride to Paris. While I am so happy she is enjoying adventures the worry wart in me is nervous with her thousands of miles away zipping through villages on an electric bike. Here’s where the AirTag comes in. We both have peace of mind knowing I always know the general area she is in and she enjoys her adventures without her daughter nagging her to check in. The AirTag has elven to be accurate on location even across the world. We are both impressed!
I bought a few airtags to place on items I lose a lot. I put one on my keys and use it daily to find them. Yet what really sold me on how amazing the product is was from this weekend. I went hiking, dropped my keys, and someone picked them up. My phone told me where the were and I was able to find them on the side of the road a few hours later within minutes. When I found the keys they were mangled and snapped in half but the airtag was perfectly fine. Im amazed by the impact they were able to survive and it still works like new! will be buying more.
I put it on my car so i can track it just in case someone steals the car, i was once really far away (in another state) from the car and it was still telling me where it was at i think it connects to other peoples iPhones to tell me where it’s at, it shows how much battery it has left on the Find My app so you don’t have to worry if it has enough battery left you just check in the app so far i like it it’s worth the price
I love that the airtag has a little chirp feature, if you are truly looking for your item, then it will send off a little sound that helps you find it. Granted it is not quite as loud as the one on your apple phone, but it is still a great feature. Just remember when you are getting your airtag, set a reminder or calendar event 11 months from your date of purchase so you know when to purchase a replacement battery for your airtag. I didn't realize that was a thing, but if it's planned for not really a big deal.
Made really well. Pairs with the iPhone very fast and easy. The one advantage these have over the competitors (Tile) is that it uses iPhones, Macbooks, iPads to locate them and we all know there's a lot of those out there.
Put this in a small protective case on my bicycle frame after some pewp stole my last bicycle from my backyard! Works great. Didn’t know it could give off a chirp noise so that’s a bonus. Extremely accurate tracking on my iPhone 11.
Now that I’ve had these for a little while I wanted to do a review.
First and foremost, I’d like to make sure anyone using these understands that while the AirTags are usually pretty good at providing location, there is a HUGE flaw (which Apple chose to include) that makes them almost worthless to me and I didn’t find out about it until after I made the purchase…
Apple has a feature on the AirTags which is supposed to discourage people from using these to track people without their knowledge (such as stalkers, etc.). While I understand that is a fear for some, it means that if you lose whatever the AirTag is attached to, you have to hope whomever finds it is honest. This is how that feature works:
Let’s say I have an AirTag in my car. My car then gets stolen. After a “certain amount of time” that the AirTag is out of range of my phone and “following” the thief, the AirTag will attempt to notify the thief that an AirTag is following them. The first attempt is by sending a notification to the thief’s iPhone. (Not sure what happens if they don’t have an iPhone.) The THIEF can then DISABLE THE LOCATION so that I can’t see where it is. If the notification goes unanswered, the AirTag will eventually begin beeping in an attempt to notify the thief that something is with them.
Although Apple says not to use AirTags as a means of anti-theft, what else would be the point?! Even if I stick it on my car keys (or laptop or pocketbook or whatever else), someone can steal those and eventually disable the location.
I’ve been unable to locate the timeframe for when the AirTag will notify someone, but will be testing it. If the timeframe is too short, it could mean that a thief disables the location on an AirTag before I even know it’s missing (ex. car stolen after I go to bed, AirTag notifies thief after only 3 hours and by the time I wake up, I can’t see the location).
That feature alone makes me regret buying these. However, I’ll also add that several times I’ve tried to use the smart track in my house and my iPhone 11 Pro will say the connection is not strong so I have to walk around aimlessly until I get close enough for a connection.
Photos are just to show the size of the AirTag - the cases were purchased separately.

READ TILL END OF REVIEW FOR DRAMATIC CONCLUSION
Owned for 2 weeks when reviewed.
I had No idea what these even were or that they even existed!!! IF YOU OWN APPLE PRODUCTS THIS WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE! If you own keys or things you loose often this is EXTREMELY ACCURATE and easy to use, connecting is extremely easy and can go with everything than can be attached, Only downside is getting over the Moral aspect and Paranoid feelings of how adding these into society will without a doubt change the way people are tracked in the future to a level that is only going to be first seen and done with these items. Extremely concerned for the future over the next years and potential government overreach strategies in getting their hands on the information of these devices to use to track the users ourselves… But after you loose your keys for the first time and have an AirTag on them you will forget about all of that and become a sheep just like me!! Lol. Sad but true.
A:AnswerYes you can, Apples AirTags are set to be connected to a phone right out of the box and once connected, it is link to the Apple ID that the phone is linked to. You can chose to set all 4 up on one iPhone or you may use each of them for different iPhones.
A:AnswerAirTags use other iPhones to provide location data. The AirTag's range is unlimited provided that there are iPhones nearby. Within Bluetooth range, Precision Finding will show you precisely where and how far away the AirTag is (on iPhone 11 and 12).
A:AnswerAlthough I agree Tile made Bluetooth trackers mainstream, Apple isn’t just copying Tile, the key here is the use of Ultra Wideband. With the U1 chip, Airtags and iPhones (11 and above) have the sense of direction that Bluetooth trackers do not have. This makes them much more accurate. Also, Apple has more than a billion devices in their network, making it much better than Tile for now.
A:AnswerI’ve got one hidden inside my car for exactly that use in mind.
I’ve disconnected the Air Tag speaker (ifixit has a disassembly guide on their site: I removed the magnet that’s glued inside, so it won’t alert a car thief to its presence). My car must pass by another cell phone to update its location, but I live in the city, so that’s no problem.
I’ve set it and left it in “lost mode”, since it’ll update its location more frequently (other iPhone users must physically tap on my Air Tag to see a programmed message: it’s impossible they’d do that, since I buried it under the dash).
“Easily” is hard to say, but I think of it like my poor man’s GPS auto theft recovery device (although GPS is more accurate, GPS devices require a $40 monthly subscription fee).
