Each device that participates in global localization and covers an area of ​​about 80 meters in range: if the gadget to be tracked passes nearby, it is thus reported and reported on the map that opens in the application of the user who wants to retrieve it. A very useful tool in case of theft or loss, which also allows you to lock the device behind the pin code and delete sensitive information remotely.

Apple has announced a draft of the technical specifications for circuit manufacturers that will be released in the coming months to take advantage of not only Bluetooth Le but also Ultra Wideband technology via U1 chip, for more precise localization.
