Apple AirTags are coin-sized devices that can be attached to items to help people track them down via iPhone if they’re misplaced.
Apple attempted to allay fears of 'unwarranted tracking' by telling consumers they were designed to prohibit this by alerting a nearby iPhone when an AirTag has been separated from its user, at the time of the devices being released in April 2021.
However, some users reported that the alert and sound can take hours or even days to be sent out and are even able to be turned off.
The location of the AirTag is also sent to the user's iCloud – where it can be seen on a map, according to Apple's website.
Using the 'Find My' app, the system provides its owner with step-by-step directions to locate the tag before finally collecting it.
