Review: Apple’s New AirTags for Tracking Your Stuff

Have you seen Apple’s new AirTags to track where your stuff is? We can see them being handy on suitcases, keys and all sorts of things. Will you get any?

Here's a quick breakdown.
Should I buy an Apple AirTag?
Sure, if you:

Want clear directions to misplaced items
The Precision Finding feature makes it far easier to locate misplaced items than just listening for the sound of the AirTag, thanks to the on-screen directions and distance countdown, and it’s currently the only location tracker on the market that offers such a feature

Are concerned about privacy
Apple has embedded several privacy features into AirTags to ensure they can’t be misused; from having your iPhone or iPad alert you if an unknown AirTag is travelling around with you, to ensuring that you can’t set up an AirTag on behalf of anyone else.
