Apple recently launched Apple AirTags smart Bluetooth tracker that will help users find lost or misplaced items and keep track of them. It is an iPhone accessory that you can use with your Apple’s Find My app. Now, you can attach the AirTags to any of your personal belongings, so it is easier to find.
Apple AirTags are lightweight and water-resistant. You can attach it to anything without compromising the weight and bulk of your items. It comes with a U1 chip that makes locating your things more accurate, precise, and effective. You can find the items as the AirTag makes a sound if nearby.
You can purchase the Apple AirTags for $29 per one pack. If you want to buy four packs, you can save as you only have to pay $99. Each Apple AirTag can only use one user’s Apple ID. Once you purchase your AirTag, you can only link your Apple ID. It means that you cannot share your AirTags with anyone.

To allow other users to use your AirTags or associate it with another Apple ID, you will need to perform a factory reset on the device. That way, it will unlink your Apple ID and your AirTags are free to be set up from scratch again.
