We finally have it air tags, let’s, unbox, Music, it’s, actually typical apple to be fair, minimalistic packaging just says air tags on the front. Let’S have a look so you fold it out boom because you’ve got some small instructions just here and here and then you’ve got your air tags let’s pop one out. Oh, i like these. These are quite actually quite tidy. To be fair, i can see one fatal flaw, though i can see it. This is a fingerprint and scratch magnet. I can see it already right here. They should have finished this in a matte color, rather than making it a shiny kind of color. Let’S keep peeling, though even the other side, the white side as well very finger. Well, the fingerprints won’t be so bad on here, but this is definitely going to scratch. Yeah, especially when it’s rubbing against your keys and your the change in your pocket and stuff like that, so all you’ve got to do is pull this little tag out and once you pull this tag out, you should hear a noise let’s see i’m assuming this is Now on, i have the iphone 10s max here and we also have the iphone 12 pro max we’re going to use the pro max today, because the pro max has a u1 chip in it which allows us to do the precision finding with the air tags. So we’re going to connect this up and we’re going to test them out just like that pops up on the screen you hit connect and then it gives you a few options.
As you can see here, we just scroll through quite a few options, so you can put in your wallet your umbrella luggage, keys, jacket, headphones handbag, camera bike, backpack and then there’s also a custom options so we’re going to click, custom options, we’re going to name this For something different, so we’re going to call it kg1 and we’re going to go to continue and we’re getting given a emoji we’re going to give it. The muscles hit continue once you’ve done, that it will stay start to connect. It will start to connect let’s give it. Oh there we go and we’re connected we’re good to go so let’s head out and go and test these out. So let’s get into some tech. Specs for the air tags, splash dust resistant and water resistant up to one meter in depth for a maximum of 30 minutes. The air tag also has a built in speaker which you can’t actually see on the actual tag. I assume it’s, underneath the white, covering with apple designed u1 chip for ultra wideband and precision. Finding it’s also powered with some user replaceable cell coin batteries, and possibly my favorite part, is the batteries. Do not need to be replaced for a minimum of at least a year to use your air tags. You’Ll need to use to find my app to access all the features and the system requirements you need to be using the 14.5 ios or later so. The air tags come in at a price point of 29 pounds for a single one or the more value option, which i think is better for 99 pounds for four accessories are sold separately.
So, for example, the key ring or the loot are sold at starting point of around about 28 pounds. Belkin also have their version, which comes in at around about 11 pounds 95 and if you’re feeling, fancy hermes also have their version, which comes in at a starting price of 249 pounds and if you don’t fancy paying apple’s premium prices. There are some third party websites like amazon, that do sell cheaper options where you can get bundle packs. For example, you can get nine air tag holders for about 15 pounds, depending on who you’re looking at another key thing to point out is the air tags are compatible with the magsafe technology on the new iphone 12 tour pro max so we’re going to test out The air tags we’re outdoors now want to hire all our air tags we’re going to use the precision finding on the iphone 12 pro max to find it wish me luck so, as mentioned earlier, precision finding is activated through the find my app using the find my Network and if you’re at a bluetooth range that’s, not a problem as soon as someone walks past, who has an ios device which is ios 13 or above it, will update the location of your airtag. However, bluetooth must be on all right, so there’s, a dog that hopefully doesn’t do up any of the stuff that’s been hidden app, is on let’s, go we’re, going to look for kg4 first right boom.
Here we go searching for signal. Okay, let’s play the sound Music. Okay we’ve got a weak signal here. Let’S try going this way. Oh here we go seven feet. Six. Five! Four, oh wait nearby. I think we found it there we go. Look. We found our first tag. Kg4 has been found onto the next one, so let’s find kg. One let’s play the sound first. Ah, air tag is not reachable, so that is slightly a bit further. Music. Okay we’ve got kg3 now it’s time to find there’s two more out. There 86 feet. Okay. 35. 34. I think we are, i know, we’re going away. Oh here we go just ahead. I think we found it boom there we go. You found another one, your right here we go, it says, keep going ahead and i think we’ve found it. So we found all four air tags. What i’ve realized from this challenge here is that it’s only really good close fox for me, if it’s too far away, it’s, probably not gon na work, especially since i found a lot of times it kept saying searching for signal. No signal available or the air tag was unavailable. Well, the best thing for us to do is: try it inside maybe inside the house and see how it works there since everything’s a bit more closer and it’s, probably more easy to kind of get onto the find. My network so there’s also a lost and found feature we’ll talk about that a little bit more in the next part of the video.
In the event of you losing your air tag, there is an option for you to find it or for you to notify others that you have lost it. There is an option called lost mode with lost mode. You just access that, through the find my app and once you open that up and enable it, you are able to put your phone number in and leave a little message if you want to just to let people know that that is your air tag and they Should contact you or whatever, the message you feel is best applicable and the way that this works is, is the person that finds it will then tap their nfc compatible device, whether it be android or an iphone on the air tag, and it will then notify them That this has been lost and you are the person to contact. That being said, there are safety measures in place, so you can’t be tracked for the wrong reason as much as it can be used to track down household items. The air tags are designed to discourage unwanted tracking, so if someone’s air tags happen to find their way into your belongings, the iphone will notify you that there is an unwanted air tag. Traveling with you so there’s also an opportunity for you to engrave your air tags and add emojis to it. Just so you can identify which one is which mines are currently playing so it’s a bit hard to tell which one is which i do recommend.
Probably getting an emoji engraving on it just so you can tell the difference so overall i’ll give the air tags an 8.5 out of 10.. I do think they’re, very cool and very handy. I do see myself using them more often, especially with my front door. Keys. It’S they’re always a problem to find, i feel the precision tracking was very accurate and very impressive. I found it more beneficial to use inside the house rather than outside outside was good, but definitely more of a close proximity kind of tool. The only downside, i would say, is or not even downside, more of a recommendation. I reckon the air tech should have like some little like a loop on it, where you can just connect it directly to your keys without having to buy the accessories but that’s. My thoughts look forward to using the air tags more in the future. Hopefully we don’t have to use them too often because we’re not losing anything, but let me know down below in the comments what you guys think of the air tags.
