Battery powered, AirTags can be attached to a key ring, eyeglass case or anything that might be misplaced. Along with Bluetooth, AirTags have NFC and UWB communications, the latter providing more precise location accuracy when used with iDevices that have Apple's U1 chip. (Image courtesy of PCMag.com.)
