AirTag has been one of Apple's most greatly anticipated products. Small and circular in design, it is an easy way to keep track of your belongings. It works just the same as Find My iPhone works: just attach it to your keys or wallet, or any other important belonging, and that’s it, they’re on your radar in the Find My app.
To use it simply say ‘hey Siri, find my keys’ and if it’s nearby you can follow the sound or alternatively, use precision finding to see the exact distance and direction of the missing item.
AirTag is affordable, with pricing at £29 for one or £99 for a four pack. AirTag will be available to order on 30.03.21. Check it out here.
Hidden feature: Some people understandably have been worried about AirTag being used to track people. But do not fear. Your iPhone or iPad will alert you if an AirTag is travelling with you. As long as the owner of an AirTag is with an iPhone and connected together, the alarm will not be triggered.

One exciting announcement for iPhone 12 is that it's now available in a vibrant new purple colour. Let's take a look at some of the other things to be excited about.
The phone is 11% thinner, 15% smaller and 16% lighter, making it the world’s thinnest, smallest and lightest 5G phone. It’s also the toughest iPhone yet, with 4x better drop performance as a result of its ceramic shield.
The camera also offers some exciting features such as Night Mode, on both the Wide and Ultra Wide cameras. Night mode will kick in automatically when it detects low-light, maintaining clarity while also capturing beautiful vibrant colour.
The new iPhone 12 will be available 30.04.21, and is priced from £29.12/mo or £699 before trade-in. Check it out here.
The long awaited upgrade to an A12 Bionic processor has been confirmed. The chip offers an upgrade to processing speeds, meaning everything from 4K upscaling to motion control is improved. This is helped by the addition of high-frame-rate HDR, explicitly for improving sports and action movies, which can also be streamed from your iPhone via AirPlay.
One major change is the ability to automatically tailor the colour balance of your smart TV using your iPhone. If you have a compatible iPhone you'll be able to use it to measure the colour output on your TV screen and then calibrate the video output of the Apple TV 4K. Just by pointing your iPhone at your TV screen, your iPhone will automatically calibrate what you watch.
The new remote sees the Siri button moved onto the side. It includes Apple's "five-way directional button", that can rewind or fast-forward when used in a scrolling motion - similar to the old iPod models. Check it out here.
