Another apple product means another ifixit teardown. Follow along as they get under the hood of apple’s tiniest hardware. One fun discovery is the opportunity for a diy lanyard/key hole.
While we can’t say why the AirTag took so long to get to market, we can say a lot of care was taken to get it done right. This doesn’t look like a first generation product. Can improvements be made? Probably, but looking at the market standard Tile, the AirTag looks every bit as well-thought-out. Compared to Samsung’s offering, the AirTag is a slick, futuristic EVE to SmartTag’s clunky, but functional Wall-E.
