Linking an AirTag to an Apple ID makes sure that no one else can use that particular tag. And as we’ve mentioned a few times, with “Lost Mode” enabled, an iPhone user can scan an AirTag connected to a found item and get the owner’s phone number to call. Looking at it from a different way, “Once you enable Lost Mode, this phone number will be visible on an Apple website that others can access to contact you whenever they found your lost item.”
If AirTags become a hit, they can be a surprising money maker for Apple.TF International analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is expecting Apple to manufacture 10 millionAirTags this year. If they are priced at the same $20 to $40 price range that the rival Tile trackers are, Apple could gross as much as $200 million to $400 million selling two different sizes of AirTags during its first year. The smaller size tags will be suitable for keys and key chains and other smaller items that you don’t want to lose while the larger tags will be perfect for tracking a bicycle or a backpack. The AirTags will reportedlybe equipped with removable batteries.
