This mechanism is very low power, and it allows making tiny devices that can be used for tracking suspects. Maybe this is actually why they made it (someone asked if they could make it).

Edit: Maybe Apple will introduce tiny key fobs that can be tracked so you can find your keys or other things.




There is already a reference to an Apple Tag in iOS 13.

I was wondering why they changed the name, I mean "Find My iPhone" could already find macbooks and ipads but now it sounds like they're going much broader than Apple devices.


Thanks, that's it for sure.

This is strongly rumored.It may also fall into the bucket of technology they license out, such as Homekit.
