Apple is finally updating AirTag to help you search for suspiciously placed tags

Apple is currently rolling out a delayed firmware update that makes it easier to track down strangers AirTags in your immediate vicinity. This is part of the company’s efforts to ensure that bad actors don’t misuse the devices to stalk others.

The problem of stalking first appeared in May 2021 when an investigative report from The Washington Post showed how relatively easy it is to follow someone with AirTag. By attaching one to a person, the device can provide an accurate location to an iPhone every few minutes, even reporting an exact address.
