Apple’s Find My network, which allows you to track your missing iPhone as it hides in the back of the cab you left. (Or just ‘making noise’ from your PC when it disappears behind your sleeping pad) is expanding beyond Macs, iPhones, and AirPods.
The first round of hardware includes Belkin’s Soundform earbuds and a Chipolo One Spot tracker, which will be released next week. You shouldn’t be: Apple teased the expansion of its Find My service last year, WWDC 2020, but things have been quiet since then, probably because most of us haven’t been going anywhere in the last year.
