Apple's Find My app just got way more useful. While it's great for locating a lost or stolen iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Apple Watch, Mac, and AirPods, as well as anything attached to an AirTag tracker, it's even better now that it works with third-party accessories and gear.
Apple's new $29 Bluetooth beacons definitely drew some inspiration from Tile's lineup of trackers. But just because AirTags are designed like existing smart trackers doesn't mean you can't find other useful ways to use these little homing tags. In fact, we've thought of more than a dozen fun ways to get the most out of AirTags.
After years of speculation and rumors, Apple finally debuted AirTag, its tiny Bluetooth tracking device, during its spring 2021 event on April 20. Unlike with Tile trackers, there's no way to attach an AirTag to an object, but there's an entire market out there for AirTag accessories so that you can put one on your keychain, bike, or any other object that you can't just toss a naked AirTag in or onto.
How To: Apple's AirTags Are Ready to Preorder on Amazon & Other Online Stores — Get Some Before They Sell Out!
If you have no intention of getting personalized engravings on your AirTags, you don't need to shop on the Apple Store unless you have an Apple Card you want to earn Daily Cash with. Best Buy. Target. Adorama. B&H Photo. All of those places will let you preorder AirTags now but so does Amazon, America's second-biggest retailer, a good choice whether you have Amazon Prime or not.
