“If the AirTag owner is apart from their device for around three days, the AirTag will make a sound.
The idea is that the sound will alert a non-iPhone user to the existence of the tracking device, and hopefully help them locate it.”
This is the bit that I don’t quite understand.
1. As an anti-stalking measure, it’ll still allow non-iPhone users to be tracked/stalked for 3 days before alerting them?
2. If I attach this to something that I only occasionally use and don’t have near me - such as my bicycle in the bike compound in work - it’ll start continuously beeping after 3 days?
Am I misunderstanding it? 🤔
I really wanted to buy 2 or 3 of these. I was waiting until they became available in Ireland, but which weren’t yet due to.......Siri specifics, presumably. 🤷🏻♂️ Even though I’d say that’s very much a minority use (and even more so given my experience of Siri, which is almost always disappointing.)Myself and a few others were considering driving the 2hrs to buy them in Belfast. Where they’re available and work because it’s UK. 🤦🏻♂️🤷🏻♂️🤷🏻♂️🤷🏻♂️It felt to me like an untapped market just yet to mature.
I don’t think this is an issue as my guess is they will not be selling cars, they will be selling a service. All maintenance and decisions to take older versions off the road to be recycled are completely within Apple’s capabilities.
AND / OR
they will offer complimentary mobility products for sale that WILL be much closer to the size and lifespan of their usual products - for example e-scooters.
