AirTag is a tracking device developed by Apple and is now available for purchase. It is designed to act as a key finder, helping people find personal objects (e.g. keys, bags, apparel, small electronic devices, vehicles, and more). Apple has software to track it using the Find My app. Now, if you are giving your AirTag to someone else, then the first step is to remove your Apple ID from it as the AirTag can be associated only with one ID. If the previous user removed the AirTag from their Apple ID but they were out of the Bluetooth range of the AirTag, then you need to reset it before you can use it with your devices. Here is how to Reset Apple AirTag.
How to Reset Apple AirTag:
If you have got an AirTag from another person, it is always advisable to reset it as this will help in the quick pairing of the device with your Apple ID.
- Press down on the polished stainless steel battery cover of your AirTag and rotate counterclockwise until the cover stops rotating.
- Remove the cover and the battery.
- Replace the battery.
- Press down on the battery until you hear a sound. This sound means that the battery is connected.
- When the sound finishes, repeat the process four more times, removing and replacing the battery, then pressing down on the battery until you hear a sound. You should hear a sound each time you press on the battery, for a total of five sounds. The fifth sound is different from the previous four. This indicates that the AirTag is now ready to pair.
- Replace the cover by aligning the three tabs on the cover with the three slots on your AirTag.
- Press down on the cover.
- Rotate the cover clockwise until it stops rotating.
