iOS 15.6 removed AirTag’s battery indicator from the Find My app

Apple recently seeded iOS 15.6 update to everyone with performance improvements, bug fixes, and security updates. It is also found that the company has removed AirTag’s battery indicator from the Find My app.

Apple’s compact electronic tracker, AirTag allows users to locate their items through the Find My app. It offers features like Precision Finding to lead the user straight to their misplaced belongings, ping it to play a sound, and Find My network’s support to know the tracker’s location anywhere on the globe.

AirTag comes with a replaceable lithium coin battery that lasts for up to a year, depending on the tracker’s daily usage. On iOS 15.5, AirTag’s battery indicator appeared under an individual tracker’s name in the Find My app, but iCulture spotted that it is not part of the new iOS 15.6 update.

Maybe Apple assumed that a year is a long time for it to display AirTag’s battery health which does not need charging but replacement or it got removed by accident and will be added back in the next update. We hope that it is the latter because forgetful people like me, need a constant reminder of their devices’ battery status.

Here are all the features introduced in iOS 15.6 update

We are only a few days away from the launch of the iOS 16 update which includes major upgrades like ock screen customization, Focus enhancements, iCloud Shared Photo Library, and enhancements in Mail, Health, Fitness, Safari, Live Text, Visual Lookup, Messages, Family Sharing, and much more.

Therefore, the tech giant is not including new features in the latest versions of iOS 15 updates. iOS 15.6 version includes an option to restart, pause, rewind, or fast-forward a live sports game in progress on the TV app, and fixes the following issues:

  • an issue where Settings may continue to display that device storage is full even if it is available.
  • an issue that may cause braille devices to slow down or stop responding when navigating text in Mail.
  • an issue in Safari where a tab may revert back to a previous page.
