Apple April 2021 Product Launches!
2021 is shaping up to be a huge new year for all things Apple with a plethora of new products launched today as part of the Apple April 2021 Event! Apple AirTag, a new segment for Apple has finally landed after years of speculation and rumour, as well as new iPad Pro models, a fantastic new, crazy thin variant of the iMac for home and school as well as Apple TV updates and iPhone 12 now in Purple.
Lose your knack for losing things. AirTag is a really easy way to keep track of your stuff. Attach one to your keys, slip another in your backpack. And just like that, they’re on your radar in the Find My app, where you can also track down your Apple devices and keep up with friends and family.
Misplacing something like your wallet doesn’t have to be a big deal when it has AirTag attached. You can play a sound on the built-in speaker by going to the new Items tab in the Find My app, or say “Hey Siri, find my wallet”. If it’s hiding nearby — like under the couch or in the next room — just follow the sound and your search is over.
