AirTags have no specified range because they operate within Apple's Find My network. This implies that as long as an AirTag is within Bluetooth range of anyone's iPhone (or other Apple device), it may connect passively with it and then assist you in locating it. For example, you may find an AirTag hundreds of miles away if someone with an iPhone walks near it. If you lose an AirTag in a remote-but-nearby location where no one is likely to go by, such as the woods behind your house, you're unlikely to find it as quickly.
AirTag Range Test
- Detection outside the apple network is limited to about 82 ft (25 m) on open space.
- It is important to note that a stable signal appears at a distance of 65.6 ft (20 m), and the display of the direction in which the air mark is located becomes available from a distance of 33 ft (10 m)
- In an internal space without partitions the range is 65.6 ft (20 m)
- Across one glass door and wood wall- 50 ft (15 m)
- Three layers of wood (like wardrobe) - 20 ft (6 m)
- Concrete wall - 10 ft (3 m)
- Thick structure wall - 3.3 ft (1m)
Will AirTag work without internet?
Apple Air Tag primarily uses Bluetooth to communicate with your phone. Therefore, you don't need an internet connection for the tag to work. However, because it uses the “Find My” app to locate your items, you'll need to turn on your internet connection for the best experience.
