Apple just dealt another blow to AirTag stalkers — here’s what’s new


The Apple AirTag has been given another update to make it safer. As found in documentation for the latest AirTag firmware by MacRumors, Apple’s introduced a much-needed improvement to its sound alert function to allow you to find unknown and unwanted AirTags more easily.

As the support document says, the firmware has “[tuned] the unwanted tracking sound to more easily locate an unknown AirTag.” It also specifies you need iOS 14.5 or later to make use of the feature, the minimum iOS version required to use AirTags at all.
