Third-party item trackers will be able to connect to the Find My Network created by iPhone, Mac and other Apple devices, the company announced Monday during its annual developers conference.
This will be a huge benefit to Tile, who recently complained to the EU Commission that Apple is making it harder for customers to use Tile’s location-aware tracking tags even as Apple prepares to launch its own.
The official name of Apple’s Bluetooth tracking tiles leaked online on Thursday and Apple only has itself to blame.
Apple published a new iPhone support video on YouTube the educates customers on how to erase your iPhone that made reference to ‘AirTags’ that have been rumored to be coming down the product pipeline since last year.
Apple’s upcoming Bluetooth tracking tag reportedly will use the same type of coin battery as its competition, the Tile Pro. MacRumors reportedly obtained information about the unreleased Bluetooth tracker, confirming that the tiny device will be called “AirTag.”
