What is an AirTag?

AirTags are small metal discs that you tack onto objects, and then locate them with an iPhone.

It works using Apple's global Find My ecosystem. It's a network of over a billion devices, that can ping other devices nearby to help locate them.

That means if someone you don't know walks near your lost iPhone with theirs, it can update the location on your Find My app.

This can be accessed via iCloud on the web, or an iPhone, iPad or Mac.

AirTag taps into this network, and lets you uncover a lost set of keys, a misplaced handbag, or a dearly departed suitcase.

It will use Find My to locate the AirTag on a map, just like a lost iPhone.

And once you get near to the AirTag, you'll get proper directions and a distance counter to direct you to its exact spot – with pinpoint precision.

Apple AirTags supported devices – which iPhones will it work with?

There are some caveats, depending on which iPhone you've got.

It needs to support iOS 14.5, so nothing older than an iPhone 6s will do.

And if you want to use the Precision Finding, you need an iPhone with a U1 chip.

That means any of the following devices:

  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone 11 Pro
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone 12
  • iPhone 12 Mini
  • iPhone 12 Pro
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max
  • iPhone 13 Mini
  • iPhone 13
  • iPhone 13 Pro
  • iPhone 13 Pro Max
  • iPhone 14
  • iPhone 14 Plus
  • iPhone 14 Pro
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max

However, Precision Finding is not necessary for basic AirTags functionality.

For normal usage, you just need an iPhone running iOS 14.5 or later.
