Apple AirTag specifications
Apple AirTag ships with the in-house U1 chip that uses ultra-wideband technology to enable ‘Precision Finding’ for iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 users. When a user moves, the Precision Finding is said to fuse input from the camera, ARKit, accelerometer, and gyroscope, and then will guide them to AirTag using a combination of sound, haptics and visual feedback. If a user is separated from the AirTag or out of Bluetooth range, the Find My network can help track it down. AirTag is water-resistant and supports NFC, Bluetooth LE, an accelerometer and Siri support. The company says that AirTag doesn’t store data and communication with the Find My network is end-to-end encrypted.
