Pro Tip: Keep track of items using Find My on iPhone

The new Items tab in Find My lets you keep track of personal items with an attached AirTag as well as compatible third-party products using the power of the Find My network, an encrypted, anonymous network of hundreds of millions of Apple devices. Devices in the Find My network use secure Bluetooth technology to detect your missing items nearby and report their approximate location back to you, so you can find them privately and securely.

Adding an AirTag

  • To get your device prepped, make sure Find My is turned on, Bluetooth is on, a strong wifi-connection, and Location Services is on.

  • If the AirTag is new, remove the wrap around the product and then pull out the tab to activate the battery.

  • Hold your AirTag near your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, then tap Connect.

  • Select an item name from the list, or select Custom Name to name your AirTag and choose an emoji.

  • Tap Continue.

  • To register your AirTag with your Apple ID, tap Continue again.

  • Tap Done.

Now you can attach your AirTag to your item and see it in the Find My app.
