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.

The recent introduction of AirTag included industry-first proactive features that discourage unwanted tracking.


As of Thursday, the AirTag firmware update has begun to be distributed to AirTag devices. If you’re near an iPhone, the AirTag is automatically updated.
