AirTags – the long-delayed object tracker bearing the Apple logo – are finally here. If you’ve been waiting for the first round of first impressions and reviews from the tech expert community, the reception has been positive so far. But there’s a big caveat – you must already be a part of the Apple ecosystem to use them, and to take advantage of their best feature, you must have the latest iPhone in your pocket. If you’ve ticked those two boxes, here’s everything you need to know about where to buy AirTags, how much they cost, and more.
How much do the AirTags cost?
The AirTags are priced at $29 each. However, if you’re looking to pick up more than one unit, you should check out the 4-pack bundle that costs $99, which will save you around 30%. Just in case you’re wondering, they only come in a single white color option. Does Apple have more color options in the pipeline? We don’t know yet.
When do they go on sale?
The AirTags are now widely available from Apple as well as authorized third-party sellers such as Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart, to name a few. You no longer have to go through the hassle of placing a pre-order and impatiently waiting for them to ship. If you think online deliveries will take time to reach your doorstep, you can pick one up from your nearby Target or Walmart store.
Where to buy the AirTags?
Before we go through a list of places where you can buy the AirTags from, there’s something you should know about customization. If you buy the AirTags from Apple, the company will let you engrave your name or an emoji on the AirTags at no additional cost. This facility is not available from any other points of purchase.
At the time of writing this, there is a limited stock of AirTags available at B&H Photo Video, but you can still go ahead and place the pre-order. You can also pick up a wide range of accessories from the outlet at discounted rates right now.
Are you wondering why you should get a new iPhone model, such as the iPhone 12, to make the most of AirTags? Well, that’s because the iPhone 12 series phones come with the U1 chip that is required for the AirTags’ Precision Finding feature to work. Intrigued by the iPhone 12?
