So here they are not one but two air tags that we’re gon na have fun. With you can actually buy them as individuals or in a pack of four now inside the box, you’re gon na basically get this. It says air tag on the front with some information on how you can set it up and then the air tag itself pretty basic packaging, and i also have two accessories. So i’ve got this loop in this blue, dark blue polyurethane kind of feel to it and i’ve got this beautiful product red leather key ring more on those. In a moment. The air tag is small it’s, not tiny in comparison, particularly when we compare it with a standard dirham here, you’ll notice that it is larger than that, and this is the shape so it’s got about eight millimeters thickness. You’Ve got this concave plastic bit at the top, which helps to elevate the sound, particularly when you need that alert. Then, on this side over here, you’ve got this metallic with engraving. Now, what is interesting is with the air tags you’re able to replace the battery yourself. So this comes with a standard cr2032 battery and it will give you uh almost a year’s worth of battery life, which is very, very good. Setting up the air tag, as you would expect from apple is super super easy. You basically bring this up to your iphone. You need to be running ios 14.5 and once you’ve done, that you’ll get this kind of notification very similar to what you might get with airpods you’re, able then to assign it to a particular category.
Like wallet backpack keyboard. There are a few others. If that doesn’t work for you there’s also a customized option there as well really really easy setup. Alright, so you have your air tag, you have it set up what next well. This is gon na work with bluetooth, low energy and the ultrawide band and enable you to find your stuff using one of two methods number one think about day to day we might misplace our items in our apartment, wallet, keys, anything else or, in my case, have Kids, that love to play hide and seek with your items, so it’s gon na work really well at locating that it does that, simply i can say to siri hey where is such and such, and it will make a sound from the air tag itself to help Me locate it now. The second way that this can be used – and this is really interesting – is out and about maybe you’ve misplaced, your wallet at a restaurant or somewhere else. This will allow the find my network to basically ping whenever there’s another device that’s nearby. On that find my network, the location of the item, and that will help then get you to that item now in both of those cases. What is really cool is you can simply make a sound and you know collect it that way, or the second way is using something called precision finding. This is a ui user interface that uses both haptic and visual feedback to essentially play a game of hot and cold with the item.
It’S really cool i’m gon na demo. This with you right now with the kids i can’t, i can’t all right. Let’S play a game: do you want to play a little game with me yeah? Why don’t you go and hide this somewhere with your brother and i’ll have to find it go, go, go, go, go right, guys, have you hidden it somewhere, yeah all right, so we’re gon na go into the find my app over here and let’s start off with Playing a sound all right, let’s go! Oh, i can hear the noise somewhere. Let me play that sound again. Is it somewhere in here? Oh, that was such an obvious place to hide it. You hit it over there all right this time, you’re gon na hide it somewhere, trickier. Okay, so let’s start walking around with this and let’s see. If i can find it using precision finding, or can you see that which way is it let’s follow the arrow, so it’s telling me it’s over here over here and it’s really hard to demo this, but right now, i’m, getting like haptic feedback and visual feedback as Well, two meters less than two meters, one meter: oh, is it in the box of lego yeah? Oh, how cool is that so? Oh you found it well done all right, so that was a bit easy. So what we’re going to do now is we’re going to twist it on we’re out and about, and the kiddos are going to try and hide it somewhere and i’m going to see if i can find it now.
This is where the find my network is so useful and we’re going to use a bit of that with the precision finding to hopefully find this air tech. The whole place is yours, go and hide this air tag go go, go with your brother, go with your brother, good luck, Music, okay, so they’ve hidden it now now. This is where it gets interesting because this is dependent on the find my network, so it really pings off other devices that have the find my network nearby and so far i haven’t got anything i’m trying to search for a signal so i’m, not getting anything so Let’S, give it a few more minutes and see if something pops up all right. So finally, it’s picked up some kind of connection wherever these guys have hidden. It was away from people but it’s telling me that it’s in this direction and to be honest, she’s, probably giving it away as well. There we go i’m close. Where is it? Is it on the floor? No where’d, you guys hide it. Oh there. It is a couple of interesting other facts about the apple air tag is the fact that apple are very clear. This is not intended to be used with the humans in your life, so can’t be using kids or partners. This is solely intended to track items and one of the workarounds with that is that if you were to slip this into somebody’s bag the moment that it separates from the person it starts to make a noise.
So, if it’s on the move, essentially it will ping, it will know that and it will alert that person so it’s one of those ways that apple have worked at making sure that this technology isn’t misused. The other element of this is the fact that, even if somebody was to find this, even if they don’t have an iphone if they have an android smartphone that has nfc capability, they can tap against the side of this, and it will bring up the information about The fact that it’s lost with perhaps a telephone number in which they can contact you with coming back to accessories here’s the apple air tag with the second loot. There are multiple different accessories that you can purchase. Some of those are reasonably priced, others are yeah let’s. Just say, interestingly priced, but you can also customize the front with an emoji or also initials as well so it’s, pretty cool helps to identify it from all the other air tags that you might have now in terms of the air tag itself. Look it’s apple’s latest product in an existing ecosystem. It works so well with the find my network, so i can see this being incredibly useful and popular for many.
