Track and locate your wallet or bag with Apple’s Find My app the next time you lose it.
If you’re an Apple user, you would often rely on the Find My app to track and locate your missing Apple products.
Now, you will be able to track and find way more missing items even if it isn’t an Apple product.
Apple has finally rolled out the updated version of their Find My app and opened up their Find My tracking network to third-party companies.
Currently, the three third-party accessories that work with Apple’s Find My are Vanmoof X3 and S3 e-bikes, Belkin’s Soundform Freedom True Wireless Earbuds and Chipolo ONE spot tracker.
Hardware manufacturers have to adhere to Apple’s Made for iPhone (MFi) accessory rules in order for them to add software-side support for Apple’s localised network to track lost items.
Approved third-party products will have a “Works with Apple Find My” badge to notify customers of the compatibility.
Users will be able to add their compatible devices to the updated Find My app now. They can browse their items via the ‘item’ tab in the Find My app, provided if their iPhone, Mac or iPad is running iOS 14.3, MacOS Big Sir 11.1, or iPadOS 14.3 respectively.
