We’ve all spent extra time before leaving the house searching for our keys or wallet. Luckily, those days are over as Apple recently debuted their newest product called AirTag which is designed to keep track of those essentials so that you don’t lose them and you don’t have to go searching high and low for them.

“We’re excited to bring this incredible new capability to iPhone users with the introduction of AirTag, leveraging the vast Find My network, to help them keep track of and find the important items in their lives,” Kaiann Drance, Apple’s VP of Worldwide iPhone Product Marketing, said in a press release.

This small, waterproof tracker can be attached to your keys, backpack, or other commonly misplaced items to notify you as to where they are at all times when you open the “Find My” app on an iPhone 11 or a newer model. The experts at TechRadar.com mentioned in their review that the precise finding feature on the app will give exact directions as to where the AirTag and your misplaced item is located.

They added that Apple has put measures in place to prevent the tracking technology from being misused such as the fact that a person can’t install an AirTag on someone else’s behalf for their iPhone or other devices. Also, it’ll give off a sound if the owner has been away from it for long stretches of time to alert them as to where it is.

“With its design, unparalleled finding experience, and built-in privacy and security features, AirTag will provide customers with another way to leverage the power of the Apple ecosystem and enhance the versatility of iPhone,” Drance added.

So this is yet another product to Apple’s extensive roster that’ll hopefully generate more innovation within the lost and found space of the tech world. For many people, this compact tracker will be a lifesaver and just what they need to become more organized.

Currently, they’re available for purchase on Apple’s official website retailing for $29 for a 1-pack and $99 for a 4-pack. To see the AirTag in action, watch the commercial below about how it can make finding everyday items so much easier.
