One of the key anti-stalking features Apple announced back in February is finally here on the way to the AirTag.
As first reported by MacRumorsa recent update of the AirTag, adjusts its built-in speaker to sound as loud as possible so it’s easier to find.
It’s also worth noting that the feature will be rolled out gradually to users, with just 1 percent of AirTag owners getting it this week, 10 percent on May 3, 25 percent on May 9, and all users on May 13 MacRumors. The new firmware build number is 1A303 (firmware version 1.0.301).
To check what firmware your AirTag is running, go to the Find My app on iPhone, tap on the Items tab and select your AirTag from the list. The serial number and firmware of the Bluetooth tracker should be visible.
Already in February Apple has announced a number of features aimed at curbing the use of the AirTag around car theft and other tracking-related crimes, including “Precision Search” that directs iPhone users to nearby unknown AirTags. The company also released a notice stating that using an AirTag to track someone is a crime in several regions of the world.
