In April, Apple unveiled—along with their colorful M1-chip iMacs, purple iPhone 12, and most advanced iPad Pro yet—their all-new AirTag. The accessory provides Apple users a way to locate any item it’s attached to (whether house keys, a handbag, a wallet, or what have you) using the Find My App. For Mac users who love to take advantage of the seamless connection between all devices in the Apple ecosystem, the brand-new AirTag will be a handy addition to the lineup.

In late 2020, Samsung launched SmartThings Find, a new app that helps you locate other Galaxy devices using Bluetooth Low Energy. To expand the searching service to more than just other Samsung gadgets, the brand introduced the SmartTag. The itty-bitty device can be attached like a keychain to any small or easy-to-misplace items like your keys or bags—you can even clip it onto your pet's collar.  From there, you can use your smartphone to enable the tag to produce a loud ringing sound, so you can more easily search for it. In case you still can’t find it, you can also track the SmartTag through the GPS technology on your SmartThings Find app.
