I’m sure you can think of dozens of things that you misplace on a regular basis, from your keys to your phone. These are common items that you can put inin, but we have many other things you might not have thought of before.
While you generally need to be within range of Bluetooth to find your AirTag, you can use Apple’s Find My service to locate it if it’s far away but—and it’s important to remember—it’s still within range of another Apple device (here). To do this, simply put the AirTag in Lost Mode and you will receive a notification once it is within range of the Find My network.
We’ll tell you some unfamiliar places where you can place an AirTag to help prevent you from constantly taking your steps back. For more details, hereon Android.
In your tent when you go hiking
If you are setting up camp at a location you have not visited before, it may be helpful to put an AirTag inside your tent so you can easily find your camp site. For example, if you decide to walk several miles one day, you can use Find My to search for the last AirTag location (your tent) and get directions back to the campsite. Remember that it should be in range of anyone else’s device, so don’t rely on this in the wild. (This is also the reason why Apple advises you not to use AirTags on pets.)
in your jacket pocket
How many times have you left your coat behind at a restaurant, bar, or friend’s house? It’s easy to forget to grab your jacket when you go out, especially if the weather is warmer than you expected or your hands are full of leftovers and travel mugs.
If you know you’ll hang your jacket on a coat rack – or the back of a chair – when you arrive, put the AirTag inside the pocket so you know where you left it. This can help prevent another favorite jacket from getting lost, and reduce money from your wallet to replace it.
inside your luggage
Getting around in airports can be tricky, and it can become especially challenging when you’re trying to find the right bags. Sometimes you wait 30 minutes until your bags are finally thrown onto the conveyor belt – and sometimes they get lost. To ease the stress of trying to locate your bag, you can put an AirTag tracker inside so you can keep track of its whereabouts.
This can help you find out if your bags have been left on the plane, if they are on the conveyor belt but you haven’t spotted them yet or if someone has grabbed your baggage by mistake. Once you know where your bags are, you can correct the situation and continue to where you are going.
Inside the laptop bag
Laptop bags can easily be left behind in the coffee shop when buying coffee for everyone in the office. When your hands are full and distracted and wondering how to open your car door, it’s hard to remember to take your bag from the cabin you were sitting in.
That’s why it’s a good idea to put the AirTag inside one of the pockets. Not only will you be able to locate your expensive laptop, but you’ll also be able to save any confidential company or personal information you had in your bag.
Hidden somewhere on your bike
If it hasn’t happened to you, you probably know someone who has had this experience. You can come home from a bike ride, go inside to grab water and something to eat and completely forget about your bike you left outside. Or maybe you went to the store and your bike didn’t lock up and when you got back it was gone.
If you place the AirTag in a hidden place on the bike, you can easily locate it. We do not recommend tracking the bike yourself. It is best to notify the police and let them retrieve your bike to avoid any dangerous situations.
This method also works on your car if it has been stolen or towed away – or if you can’t remember where you parked it. Although if you have an iPhone and it’s connected to your car via Bluetooth, your phone can locate another place you left it.
