What you need to know
- The AirTags first impressions videos are rolling out onto YouTube.
- Pre-orders for the new trackers begin tomorrow.
Apple's AirTags will go up for order tomorrow and anyone still on the fence about placing an order should probably check out some of these videos. YouTubers got their hands on AirTags early and there are a few first impressions videos to check out.
In fact, there are more than a few!
The general consensus seems to be that these little trackers do what they set out to do, although there are some concerns about the way they'll withstand the rough and tumble of living in a bag for a few years. Some AirTags are already beginning to show signs of wear after a day or so of use.
That said, the functionality – making it easier to find lost items – seems to be doing its job. And really, what more do you need from an item tracker?
Check out some of these videos and let us know your thoughts on AirTags.
You'll need an iPhone to make use of AirTags, with iPhone 12 arguably the best iPhone for most people right now.
