Apple Teases an Android app For AirTags, Announces an Update For AirTags That Improves Privacy

The new update will give people new ways to be alerted when an AirTag or Find My network-enabled device is nearby.

According to CNET, Apple has announced that starting today, it will send out updates to AirTag that will change how it notifies people if they have undesired AirTags following them. The new firmware update will modify the time taken to play an alert when separated from the owner.

Previously, AirTags would trigger an alert three days after being misplaced. Now after the update, lost AirTags will play a sound for 8 to 24 hours if they are not found. According to Apple’s statement, this should “discourage unwanted tracking.” AirTag trackers are also expected to support Android devices in the future.
