Apple’s AirTag tracking gizmos have soared to new heights of popularity among travellers eager to avoid lost luggage, or at least have a better idea of the whereabouts of their bags if they go missing.
Slip one of these button-sized Bluetooth wireless trackers into your bags and they’ll appear in the Find My app of your iPhone or Mac computer with amazing accuracy.
And now the Apple AirTag is even better and more flexible.
When first launched in 2021, each Apple AirTag could only be ‘owned’ and used by a single person.
Frequent flyers who’ve long been requesting AirTag sharing will welcome this feature, which is accessible through the Find My app by selecting any specific AirTag and choosing the ‘Share This AirTag’ option.
After choosing Add Person, type a contact's name and hit the Send button. Now both you and that person will be able to see this AirTag’s location in the Find My app.
Each AirTag can be shared with as many as five people, which is super handy for sharing a handful of trackers with family members or work colleagues.
And with Apple AirTags sold in packs of four, it’s probably a good time to invest in a handful of these smart trackers to cover your upcoming travels for 2024.
