How to know the battery that an AirTag has

What are AirTags?

Quickly, the AirTag are devices that are placed on accessories that have special importance to us so that, in the case of not finding it, this device place on a map or make a sound so that we can find it quickly. This process avoids spending hours looking for a device that is often closer than we think. To locate these AirTag, it is done through the application Search present on the iPhone or iPad.

The purpose that Apple seeks with the presentation of these products, in addition to saving us unnecessary searches for objects, is the security that it wishes to offer users, since Apple will not know at any time what device you are looking for or what device is related to that AirTag , so the information generated in the searches for these targets is end-to-end encrypted.

Are they battery operated, when do you change?

Unlike all Apple products, AirTags contain a CR203 battery2, which is a highly durable battery. The reason for this is that the consumption of an AirTag is really low, so the duration of the drums can last about a year. After a year, it is recommended to make this change because it can stop emitting communication when we search for a certain object.
