The direct competitor to Tile if there ever was one. It allows users to track, locate and find lost items. We knew it was coming, in fact there have been several “leaks” over the years but its great to see its existence and how it will now reshape the “find my item” market. They’re pretty small so they are easy to store away. As you can expect you will be able to use it with your Find My app which is preinstalled into iOS and iPadOS.
