How to connect an airtag to a different phone

To connect an apple airtag to a different phone, you will have to do the followings;

  1. Connect the other phone with the AirTag apple ID and password.
  2. Add the other phone to your apple airtag.
  3. Remove the AirTag and pair it with the other phone.

Let me explain them one after the other.

1.Connect the other phone with the AirTag apple ID and password

One of the ways to connect an airtag to a different phone is to use the airtag apple ID on the other phone.

Now listen, if you have multiple devices linked with one apple ID, once you connect your airtag to any of the phone or device, it will automatically be connected to the other devices.

The Apple airtag works with apple ID so all devices connected to this very airtag apple ID, can have access to the AirTag.

2. Add the other phone to your apple airtag

This option will be made available from ios 17 and iPadOS 17 update.

To be able to tear this feature, I enrolled for ios 17 beta version, and was able to add other devices to my airtag. However, the other devices must be on ios 17 as well.

In the next two to three months we’ll receive the official ios 17 version, and which you can add multiple devices to your airtag.

But let me show you how it works using the ios 17 beta version.

So all you need to do is to open Find My on your iPhone, and tap on Items.

Right there you will see your airtag, kindly tap on your apple airtag. Now scroll down a little and you will see Share This AirTag option. Below it you will see Add Person as shown below.

If you tap on Add Person, on the next screen tap on the Continue Button, and select the contact you want to add to your airtag. If you see contacts written in blue color, it signify that is eligible.

That is you can share your airtag with the contact.

For example below.

So you go ahead and select the contact and tap on SHARE at the top right corner.

It will notify the other person that you want to share AirTag location with the person, and it is left for the person to accept the request or not accept the request.

So once the person has accepted the request, the contact can view your airtag from any given location. Remember, you can also remove the contact from your airtag location sharing.

So far I don’t know the number of devices you can add to your airtag until apple release the final and official ios and iPadOS 17 update.

When talking about how to connect an airtag to a different phone, you simply need to use the Add Person option to add multiple devices to your iPad.

3. Remove the AirTag and pair it with the other phone

The third option is to remove your phone from the AirTag. Once you remove the phone from airtag, you can pair another phone to the AirTag.

It’s not hard to remove the AirTag from your phone, simply open Find My >> tap on Items >> select your airtag by tapping on it >> scroll down until you see Remove Item.

As shown below.

Once you have removed the AirTag from your phone, then you can pair the AirTag to another phone. So this is another method to connect an airtag to a different phone.

Kindly Note That;

Once an airtag is paired or linked to a phone or apple ID, it is the owner that will unpair or remove the AirTag from the phone and Apple ID.

So incase you happen to see a random apple airtag on the floor or anywhere, simply help the owner to retrieve the lost airtag.

Benefits of the Apple airtag

As the Apple airtag is designed to help users locate and keep track of their personal belongings like keys, bags, wallets, and other items. Here are the key features and benefits of Apple airtag;

  • The AirTag uses the U1 chip (Ultra Wideband technology) present in iphone 11 series and above to provide more precise location tracking. When you’re searching for a lost item, your iPhone can guide you with on-screen arrows and precise distance measurements, making it easier to pinpoint the AirTag’s location.
  • AirTag is seamlessly integrated with Apple’s Find My app, which is already available on iOS devices like iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers. This app allows users to see the last known location of the AirTag on a map and track its movements over time.
  • If you misplace an item with an AirTag attached to it, you can put the AirTag into “Lost Mode.” When someone with an iPhone or an NFC-enabled device comes across the lost AirTag, they can tap it with their device, and a notification will appear on their screen with contact information provided by the owner. This way, you can be notified when your lost item is found, without disclosing your personal information to the finder.
  • AirTag is rated IP67 for water and dust resistance, which means it can withstand being submerged in up to 1 meter (about 3 feet) of water for up to 30 minutes.

One of the benefits of the Apple airtag that I love so much is that you can easily use it to track your luggage.

Also, you can use it to track your post item like cars, bike, or any valuable no matter the location and the distance. So that’s in today’s question of the day, how to connect an airtag to a different phone.
