Apple AirTags rumors find new life as Find My app gets a big update Find My

Apple had previously restricted its Find My feature to only locate Apple-made devices, partially out of security and privacy concerns: it works by tapping into the network of existing iPhones and other Apple products out in the wild. But the company is opening it up to third-party accessories, including Tile-like trackers, reigniting the possibility of the Tile-like Apple AirTags.

Non-Apple product manufacturers can now integrate into the Find My web of devices so long as they adhere to the privacy protections of the network, Apple explained in a press release. Crucially, existing products can be added, too – all compatible products can feature a ‘Works with Apple Find My’ badge to indicate compatibility.
