Let’s say these AirTags, have already paid for their entire existence, as well as many other devices of this type. These GPS tools helped recover $7,000 worth of photographic and computer equipment stolen from a tourist vacationing in Australia.
The nightmare began when he realized that his car had been stolen and the suitcase with the equipment had disappeared. And now?
AirTags from Apple brought a new level of Website Extensions in everyday life. The Find My network uses millions of iPhones scattered around the planet as a point of information when it passes through the AirTag. Anonymously, the iPhone informs the search network about the location of the missing AirTag. Next to it, a lost or stolen object will be closer to recovery.

My car was broken into while we were traveling in Flinders Ranges last night and they took a laptop bag and a camera - AirTags were attached to both items.
He said Tate on the local 9News channel.
Open the Find My app and call the police
