Helpful articles with AirTag answers

I’ve been looking for articles with answers to basic questions about AirTags. Look below and save yourself hours of checking.

Personal note: AirTags only work if used with accessories — they lack either holes by which they can be attached or a sticky back. Each of those accessories adds weight and makes them less suitable for small items.

Accordingly, I believe Tiles still have many uses. They can be stuck to anything, placed on a pre-existing key ring, or simply slid into a wallet. I have Tiles attached to the back of my Kindle Ayotu covers, tucked like credit cards into the back of my wallet, on each of my key rings, and placed on other small items where an AirTag would be useless. Don’t count Tile out yet.

But here are the articles about AirTags
