Apple reveals what was included in latest AirTag update

Published on

Apple has dropped two firmware releases for its AirTag Bluetooth tracker since November, but until now it isn’t clear what new features actually contained in these updates.

According to the new support document in the Apple’s website, update 2.0.24 allows users to sort out non-smart data from AirTags by Quick Search. Apple first announced this feature earlier this year as an anti-stalking measure.

When an iPhone detects a unknown AirTag that follows them, the user is now able to use Precision Finding and sound alert to locate it and disable the device.

It’s important to note that Precision Detection requires an iPhone 11 or older that uses the iPhone’s U1 ultra wideband chip.

2.0.36, on the other hand, fixes an issue with the AirTags accelerometer that prevented it from activating when moving.

That’s not easy to update the AirTags firmware, like Apples AirPods. The Bluetooth tracker automatically updates when connected to an iPhone and there’s no way of pushing it manually.

The Internet is pretty expensive.
