    Some nice hardware hacking there, however having watched that I am still not sure what an airtag is and why I would care (even assuming I cared for anything apple made).

    So you basically attach an airtag to something of value to yourself and if it's stolen or lost any time someone with an iPhone is close to the stolen/lost item their iPhone automatically sends a message to your phone with the location of the said item.

    Exactly. It’s an attachable GPS tracker.

    But what's to stop you from just taking the tag off and say tying it to a stray cat ...

    Exactly why they are pointless.

    Seems more like something you would integrate into a product rather than being a product it self

    Easy solution move to the UK and get a Sky Q TV box. If you lose your remote you just push a button on the Sky Q box and the remote starts beeping and lights up. Problem solved lol

    Do what I do, attach magnets to your remotes and put them some where you know they aren't gonna get lost. I've done this for the last 2 years and I can count on one hand the times I've had to look for a remote. At the moment I have 2 different sets of leds, sound bar, TV, hdmi switch and cost me substantially less than $30

    This tech has been around for ages thought. The only reason this product has any sort of relevance is because its all in apple eco system.

    This product to me is as useless as any product apple makes. Not that I'm an apple hater or anything. But I just don't buy into anything they have to offer.

    Dish network remotes have that feature, well the hopper DVR does, built in voice control and motion sensing, it lights up when you move it in the dark, so you can see the buttons, sometimes it's the simple things that make a product good

    Well, Permanent Jailbreaks are a thing of the past.
    (pay 99$ for a dev account ? nope)

    And even if they weren't, Saurik closed the 'paid' cydia store front.
    Therefore most cool tweaks will be gone in no time (ByeBye PwnTunes)
    So, good riddance Apple

    Only good thing about apple iOS devices is low latency implementation with audio devices suchas keyboards via USB OTG.

    It looses everywherelse to Android. Hands down.

    The newer Android phones use digital audio, this is decoded via USB-c with a decoder/encoder chip (the earlier/cheaper phones simply use a USB based dac), I use it with FL studio without latency problems, unlike Bluetooth audio

    Also Android has had USB mouse and keyboard support before kitkat

    Still I don't like them taking away the headphone jack
