It’s a great time to stock up on Apple’s AirTags if you were looking to buy a few to keep track of valuables and other belongings. The four-pack AirTag bundle is currently on sale for $80 at Amazon this Black Friday, $19 less than what you would pay for it without the discount. That’s $20 apiece for each AirTag, which typically sells for $29, and is nearly an all-time low for the bundle. You can also get a single AirTag in case you don’t have any need for four, but (while also discounted) it’ll set you back $24 instead of just $20.
Apple’s AirTags leverage the company’s Find My network that’s powered by all of its devices around the world. You’ll need to pair them with an iPhone or an iPad to be able to track them, of course, but as long as they’re within range of another Apple device, you’ll know where they currently are or what their last location was. The Find My map will be able to guide you, so you can find your purse, suitcase, wallet, or whatever it is you’re tracking.
You can make an AirTag play a sound on its built-in speaker through your phone or tablet to make it easier to find, or you can ask Siri to do it for you. If you have an iPhone 11 or later that supports Ultra Wideband, you’ll have access to the Find Nearby feature that displays the distance to and the direction information for your AirTag. Your phone will also vibrate the closer you get to the tracking device. And if you want to be notified as soon as it’s spotted by Apple’s Find My Network, all you have to do is put the device in Lost Mode. When it comes to maintenance, you don’t have to do much: The AirTag is water and dust resistant, and it runs on a coin battery that you only have to replace once a year or so.
