Apple introduced AirTag at its launch in recent weeks. This little accessory, which we have known will come for several years, allows you to locate the items. AirTag can communicate with devices belonging to the Apple ecosystem, and while it is far from its owner, it can transfer its location. An AirTag user in the United Kingdom has shipped his accessory to test this feature.
AirTag delivered to cargo successfully monitored
AirTag’s primary purpose is to monitor items that may be near you, such as keys or wallets, with the U1 chip on iPhones. But not every item can be lost near us. Apple’s “Find” database comes into play. Thanks to the network of millions of Apple users, AirTags are communicated and location tracking never ceases. For this to be possible, there must be other Apple devices around the AirTag. For those wondering if you can find his stuff, the user in England has done a nice experiment.
The user who put an AirTag in the package he was going to send to his friend managed to continuously monitor it after shipping it. AirTag was able to track the package from the cargo branch to the delivery point. This location data was transmitted to the user at random time intervals.
Even three days after the package reached the friend of the person who experimented, his friend did not notice. Which worries us about security. Someone secretly putting airtag in our bag can be a privacy issue. If the person being tracked is an Apple user, they will be notified by the Find Our Device app. But for non-Apple users, this can become a serious problem.
Still, it’s nice to be able to track a remote package with AirTag. Apple deserves a plus when it comes to remote location tracking.
