- VanMoof has added Find My support to its e-bikes.
- All S3 and X3 models sold starting today will support the new location service.
Today, Apple announced that the Find My app will finally track third-party products that integrate with Apple's Find My network. One of the first products that will add support for Find My is VanMoof, an electric bike company.
The company announced support for Find My with its S3 and X3 e-bikes earlier today. The company says that any bikes ordered from today will come with support built-in. With the feature, VanMoof owners will be able to use the Find My app to locate their bike using Apple's private Find My network which uses hundreds of millions of Apple devices to help people locate their lost items.
Carlier says that the company's in-house developers made it possible for VanMoof to be one of the first companies to support the new Find My network accessory program.
If your bike is ever misplaced, you can use the Find My app to mark it as such. If you're looking for it, you can remotely trigger a sound to play on it. If it is lost completely, you can put it in Lost Mode and the Find My network will help track it down.
The new version of the VanMoof S3 and X3 are available now for $1998 directly from VanMoof.
