AirTag was introduced in recent weeks. With this little accessory, which we have been aware of for several years, you can find the places of the items. AirTag, that can communicate with devices belonging to the Apple ecosystem, can transfer their location, even if they are far from the owner. A AirTag user in UK sent their accessory to test this feature.
AirTag delivered to cargo was tracked successfully
The primary use of AirTag is to monitor items near you, such as keys or wallets, with the U1 chip in iPhones. But not every item can be lost around us. Apple’s “Find” database plays a role in this. Thanks to the network of millions of Apple users, communication with AirTags is established and location tracking is never interrupted. For this to be possible, there must be other Apple devices around it AirTag. For those wondering if they can find their item, the user in England has done a fun experiment.
The user who has a AirTag in the parcel to be sent to his friend, could continuously track this parcel after sent to cargo. AirTag managed to trace the package from the freight leg to the delivery point. This location data was sent to the user at random intervals.
Even three days after the platoon reached the investigator’s friend, his friend did not notice. This also makes us concerned about safety. Someone secretly has the AirTag in our bag can pose privacy concerns. If the person tracked is an Apple user, a notification will be sent to that person by the Find Our Device app. But for non-Apple users, this can become a serious problem.
Still, it is nice to be able to do that AirTag a remote package. Apple deserves a plus for remote location tracking.
