What the AirTags need is geofencing, specifically selectable geofencing.If I'm in a busy airport I want to know immediately any time my carryon or my messenger bag leaves my side — whether I forget to grab it of if it wanders 10 feet away.On a train where my bag is on the luggage rack on the other end of the car I want to know if it suddenly moves to the next car.I know this will drain the battery but that's why it needs to be selectable so I can turn it off when I'm in my hotel room.
Keys I get. Everyone misplaces keys. But what other item, that is sufficiently large to attach an AirTag to, do people misplace? Has anyone, ever, really lost a back pack, or forgot your carry-on luggage? And even if, these are three items. I’d love to read ideas because I ordered four AirTags and I don’t yet know what to do with them!
If it were possible to share an AirTag, then it would be impossible to stop coercion. Someone in a domestic abuse situation could be made to share access to their AirTag and Apple has therefore prevented this.
Please stop spreading this fraudulent logic. It makes no sense. If it did, every other item in the Find My network would share the same prohibition. AirTag is the only Find My device from Apple that doesn't allow you to share location. The one device that's probably going to be with a person more than any other, their phone, allows location sharing.
What I can’t figure out is…if me and my wife both have airtags on our separate set of keys will we always be notified that the other ones tag is “tagging alone” every time we ride together?Or on a bus or train with multiple people with airtags on them
Like many Apple products purchased, the fantasy ends when you actually use it. If not, any marginal improvement v+0.1 reminds you of a planned obsolescence somewhere in time.
The price doesn't seem like a con to me. They are less expensive than the competition while also having better HW.
