  • After years of persistent rumors, we’re finally getting our hands on the first real-world photos and videos of Apple’s AirTag.
  • Several media outlets and personalities have reported that AirTag is easily scratched, with some noting that the AirTag had scratched within only a few hours of usage.
  • At the same time, reviewers praised AirTag for its premium build quality, lightweight design, and pro-privacy features.

A few days ago at Apple’s ‘Spring Loaded’ special event, the Cupertino company unveiled their highly-anticipated AirTag item trackers. After persistent rumors, we’re finally getting our hands on the first real-world glimpses of the product. The AirTag itself is a small device that includes a built-in speaker, accelerometer, Bluetooth LE, and a replaceable battery. Apple says the tracker should last for a year of battery life, and you can use an NFC tap to activate Lost Mode. From Apple:

AirTag is a supereasy way to keep track of your stuff. Attach one to your keys, slip another in your backpack. And just like that, they’re on your radar in the Find My app, where you can also track down your Apple devices and keep up with friends and family.

However, several media outlets and personalities have reported that AirTag is easily scratched, with some noting that the AirTag had scratched within only a few hours of usage. At the same time, reviewers praised AirTag for its premium build quality, lightweight design, and pro-privacy features.

AirTag will be available starting on the 30th of April, 2021, according to Apple's website. AirTag is priced at $29 on its own — with the option to buy a four-pack for $99.
