AirTags can be tracked from miles away, as long as they are within Bluetooth range of an Apple device on the Find My network. This means that if you leave an AirTag in a coffee shop on the other side of the world, you can still locate it because it’s close to so many other people’s iPhones.
However, if the AirTag is out of range of any iPhones, you won’t be able to track it.
It’s important to note that the range of an AirTag is limited by Bluetooth technology. The range of Bluetooth is typically around 30 feet, so if your AirTag is out of range of any devices on the network, you won’t be able to track it.
How Far Can You Track AirTag?
The range of AirTag depends on the Bluetooth range between the AirTag and the nearest Apple device connected to Find My App. According to some sources, the AirTag can reach up to 800 feet depending on the Bluetooth range.
However, it’s important to note that obstacles like walls and other electronic devices can interfere with the connection.
How to Play Sound on AirTag from Miles Away
If you’ve lost your AirTag, you can play a sound on it to help you locate it. To do this, open the Find My app on your iOS device and select your AirTag. Then, tap on the “Play Sound” button.
Also, you can Turn Off your AirTag Sound.
If your AirTag is within Bluetooth range, it will play a sound to help you locate it. If it’s not within Bluetooth range, you can put it in Lost Mode and get notified when it’s found.
Precision Finding with AirTag
AirTag also comes with a Precision Finding feature that uses the U1 chip on iPhone 11 and later models to provide more accurate location data.
With this feature, you can get directions to your lost item using the Find My app. The app will guide you to the precise location of your lost item using a combination of sound, haptic feedback, and visual cues.
In conclusion, AirTag is a great tracking device that can help you locate your lost items. However, it’s important to keep in mind that its range is limited to Bluetooth connection.
If you’re using AirTag to track your luggage, backpack, or pets, make sure to check the regulations and liability rules in your area.
