What you need to know

  • Apple's AirTag can be used to track all kinds of things.
  • We want to know what it is you're tracking with your AirTag.

Now that Apple's AirTag has been around for a week or so it's likely all the early adopters already have at least one in their possession. I know I do! But now that you have it, what are you actually doing with it?

In the almost two years it took for Apple to ship AirTag I'd been wondering about what I would use one for. The most obvious to me was car keys because, like many men of a certain age, I can't remember where my kids are most of the time – let alone my keys. So that's where my AirTag went.

I haven't lost my keys since so I haven't even been able to test it out!

But what about you? With AirTag being so versatile – so long as you pick up the best AirTag accessories – you can put one almost anywhere. Wallets, keys, and bags seem the most obvious but now it's over to you to tell us where you put your AirTag. What are you always losing enough to warrant an AirTag?

Anecdotal evidence before launch suggested people wanted to use an AirTag to track pets, kids, and more. Apple says that isn't the best of ideas, but is that stopping you?
