He loses his suitcase at the airport, his AirTag travels to Portugal in his place
AirTag, Apple’s object trackers, are extremely practical for tracking your luggage. A Canadian couple has just got into the habit of hanging these accessories on their suitcases before going on vacation. And thanks to the AirTag, they were able to witness live the incredible journey of their lost bag at the Toronto airport.

Sold at 35 euros, they cling directly to your luggage, your keys or your wallet. Via Locate appit is then possible to obtain the exact position of the lost object on a map.
Unfortunately, AirTags were quickly used for criminal purposes, as evidenced by numerous stories of espionage and harassment in connection with AirTags. The proliferation of these cases has also prompted Apple to react and announce an update to combat these misuses.
