"The AirTag may be the most well-planned and executed location beacon ever made." -- Alan Truly
From ScreenRant's "Why Apple Might Have Already Won 2021 With AirTag" posted Friday:
Apple's newest category of products is an iPhone accessory called AirTag and this tiny location beacon may end up having one of the biggest impacts of the year. With nearly one billion Apple devices worldwide capable of accessing the Find My network, these top-quality, yet inexpensive key, luggage, and bag trackers seem likely to dominate the U.S. market in 2021, and should eventually prove just as popular worldwide.
The AirTag may be the most well-planned and executed location beacon ever made. Part of that is due to the huge number of the iPhone 11, iPhone 12, and Apple Watch Series 6 owners that comprise the Find My network. With over an eighth of the world’s population carrying devices that can anonymously ping an AirTag and send an encrypted transmission of its location back to the owner, the ease and accuracy of finding an item almost anywhere in the world is astounding.
My take: These little things are going to be a big hit.
