Our Apple Airtag Review showing it's features and how to set it up. Our Apple Airtag review also includes a video showing how to replace the battery.
One of the newer devices Apple has released recently is the Apple Airtag. With the Apple Airtag they have managed to simplify and perfect an existing product in the market. This is our Apple Airtag Review. It also includes a video of the Apple Airtag Unboxing and setup with an older iPhone SE. This shows how easy the Apple Airtag is to setup. It also features how the battery in the Apple Airtag can be easily replaced, and no tools are required.
We have always been great fans of Apple Technology ever since the Apple iPod. This continued with the iPhone and iPad devices. When we went to the store to buy the Apple Airtag for review, the Apple Airtags were nowhere to be seen. We had to ask the shop assistant where they were, and he found one behind the counter. Ironically they were probably stored behind the counter to prevent them being stolen, as they come in a tiny box.
The Apple Airtag cost $55 in New Zealand, which was quite pricey. But the Airtag should be worth every cent if it saves us time and frustration, should we lose our Wallet or Keys in the future. Plus because the battery is user replaceable, it means that it should last many years. Some of the old previous trackers that other manufacturers released did no have a replaceable battery, so it meant having to buy an entire new tracking device every year or so.
Unlike many other trackers, the Apple Airtag integrates with Apples 'Find My' network. This means that some of the hundreds of millions of iPhones, iPads, iPod touches and Mac devices around the world can potentially help you to track down your Apple Airtag via this network. This means that it maybe possible to find your Apple Airtag device no matter where you lose it, as long as there is another internet connected Apple device within range of the Apple Airtag.
The 'Find My' app potentially allows you to view on a map, where your lost Apple Airtag is. If you have a newer Apple iPhone, such as the iPhone 11 or 12, the iPhone can lead you to the precise location, also showing the direction and distance it is in in real-time, as you search for it. Older iPhones will only show the general location of the Apple Airtag on the map. You then have to locate the tracker by activating the 'sound alert', to pinpoint it's location. This is not ideal if it is in a noisy environment.
The Apple Airtag does have a built in speaker that will ping a sound when you press the 'Play Sound' button in the 'Find My' app. This is very useful if you have lost your Apple Airtag somewhere around the house. You can just walk around the house listening for the beeping until you find it. If there were some criticisms about the Apple Airtag, these would be that it only plays the sound for a few seconds, and it isn't very loud. So you have to keep pressing the 'sound alert' button to keep it beeping. Whereas the other devices we have used, they would play the sound for a lot longer, and were a bit louder.
If you have an older iPhone, you don't get the precision Finding feature in the app, so you must rely on this beeping to find the Airtag.
One thing we did notice is that if you pick up the Apple Airtag after it has been stationary for a period of time, it starts to beep. We couldn't work out if this was a fault or not. But apparently it is a new feature to prevent the Apple Airtag being used to secretly track people.
One problem with the Apple Airtag is that you can't add it to your keyring without also purchasing a special Apple Airtag Keyring. Apple sell some but they cost more than the Apple Airtag themselves. Third parties also make them We have a link where you can buy Apple Airtag Keyrings . You can also buy Apple Airtags from Amazon using our link.
