If you lose your AirTag, you can it by using Apple’s Find My network. Find My uses Bluetooth signals from the device to ping its position and relay it back to its owner. Apart from Bluetooth, iPhones that are equipped with U1 chips support a feature called Precision Finding that accurately determines the distance and direction of the lost AirTag.
AirTag location trackers were unveiled by Apple during its virtual ‘Spring Loaded’ event. The tags can easily be attached to objects or everyday items like purses, school bags, and keys to quickly locate them.
