What you need to know
- Apple is selling accessories designed for its newly-announced AirTag trackers.
- Prices go all the way up to $449 for a luggage tag.
Apple announced its AirTag trackers earlier today and they look pretty sweet, as do the accessories for attaching them to things. And then there are the Hermès AirTag accessories (opens in new tab). And their prices, going all the way up to $449.
That's right. The AirTag Hermès Luggage Tag will sell for $449 (opens in new tab).
The accessory itself does look pretty nice and I'd be happy to have one attached by my bargain-basement luggage. But almost $550? The product description certainly sounds fancy, at least.
None of that makes much sense to me. Which probably drives home the point that these things aren't aimed at us mere mortals, after all.
Still, if you want to spend from $349 on a special piece of leather for holding your AirTag, Apple and Hermès have your back (opens in new tab).

Having grown up using PCs and spending far too much money on graphics card and flashy RAM, Oliver switched to the Mac with a G5 iMac and hasn't looked back. Since then he's seen the growth of the smartphone world, backed by iPhone, and new product categories come and go. Current expertise includes iOS, macOS, streaming services, and pretty much anything that has a battery or plugs into a wall. Oliver also covers mobile gaming for iMore, with Apple Arcade a particular focus. He's been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and still struggles to comprehend the fact he can play console quality titles on his pocket computer.
You have to consider the price of unicorn leather. When you get right down to it, $449 is a small price to pay to keep track of your $5000 Louis Vuitton bag.
