The sturdy keychain includes two housing options: a rear waterproof IP67 and a rear part with a hole for the speaker.

Although AirTags can be used to track a pet, Apple’s vice president of global product marketing for iPhone, Kaiann Drance, has reminded users that the AirTag was built to find inanimate objects and not pets or children.
