MKBHD was all praises about AirTag and said that a lot of thought has been put into making them. They cater to various scenarios well whether they are lost, or for concerns such as privacy and stalking. They can detect when they are not with their owner and respond accordingly to situations. He also demoed Precision Finding and it worked really well.
In a nutshell, The Verge’s review focuses heavily on the fact that AirTag is made by Apple, and that it works great in the Apple ecosystem. It takes advantage of Apple’s tight hardware and software integration, is extremely privacy-focused, and will keep Apple users from switching from the ecosystem. None of these are really any knocks on the product itself as most of its features work great because of the integration.
CNET also had an explanatory video of AirTag’s features, within the little 8 hours that they had to test it out.
