AirTags and Accessories

 

Ok I forgot to say this in the show but - “may the Fourth Be With You” grin.

 

AirTags

 

I cover:

What the AirTags are,

A physical description of the AirTag,

The easy setup process (including Naming and Emoji),

Using the AirTag Play Sound button to locate via “sound” in Find My/Items Tab,

The Amazing Find Near By function which Guides You to the AirTag in Find My/Items Tab (what a game changer for people who are blind or low vision),

Accessories for attaching AirTags to items,

How many AirTags you can have on your AppleID, and

Cost of the AirTags.

 

Here is my link to a demo of the AirTags: setup and use:

All of the software Updates are Here from Apple

 

Including the:

 ECG function on the Apple Watch now being available in Australia,

Unlock your iPhone via your Apple Watch if FaceID detects you are wearing a mask,

The annoying Voice 1 and Voice 2 choices for voices used by Siri,

 and Voice Control now supporting English Australia.

Not much to report really in the other OS’s.

 

Samsung Galaxy Unpacked April 2021

 

Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book 360.

 

Windows 10 ultra note books with LTE/5G, sorry but not that exciting, and of course, no Audio Description.
