Today we are going to explain how does the new Search in iOS 15 work. The arrival of iOS 15 will bring important changes, which will make it easier to find your lost or stolen devices. We are going to explain all the new features.
How does the new Search in iOS 15 work?
Apple released the new Search feature a few weeks ago which adds the ability to find all our devices, even our AirPods, thanks to the participation of all iPhones, iPads, and Macs around the world that create a network that connects to any Apple accessory that is lost.
The launch of the AirTag also makes it possible to find objects that have nothing to do with Apple, to which we can attach these new locator tags. With all these additions, Apple’s Search network becomes the largest one available today, in which all users help each other to find objects.
With iOS 15 there comes the addition of new advanced features, some of which had long been requested by users. Starting with the arrival of this update after the summer, turning off the iPhone will not prevent you from being able to find it on the map, even if it runs out of battery. With iOS 15 your phone will always be reachable, even when it is turned off, out of battery, or out of coverage. It will use the minimum available energy to act as an AirTag and connect to any other available device.
We will also be able to receive notifications when we move away from the devices in our Search network. If you leave your keys or a backpack that can be located with an AirTag, or you forget your iPad at work, you will receive a notification as soon as you walk away from it.
So we can avoid losing our items because before we leave the place where they are we will be alerted that we are leaving them behind. These are everything you need to know about the new features.
