Apple announces the Search network, locate your things from the iPhone app

We have known for a long time that third-party accessories were to be integrated into the Search app, which already has a special section called Objects in iOS 14.5. Now Apple has made it official this movement with the «Find My Network Accessory Program»

The Search app is now much more powerful

The Search app, previously called Find my iPhone, has evolved and now integrates different options. We can locate our devices, to our family members and their devices, and now different objects.

Thanks to the new Find My Network Accessory Program, which is part of the Made for iPhone (MFi) program, any accessory manufacturer can integrate a new or existing device into the Search network.

«Apple today unveiled the revamped Search app, which enables third-party products to use the secure and private search capabilities of Apple’s Search network, which encompasses hundreds of millions of Apple devices.

The first devices compatible with the network Search

Apple has also announced first devices that will officially be compatible with the Search app. Apple has looked for 3 varied and different products, which show the potential of this new initiative.

  • The VanMoof S3 and X3 electric bikes. New bikes purchased on or after April 7 will be compatible with Apple’s Search network.
  • Auriculares True Wireless SOUNDFORM Freedom de Belkin. They will be available this spring.
  • Localizador ONE Spot de Chipolo. With a lightweight and water-resistant design, the Chipolo special edition ONE Spot locator compatible with the Busca network easily attaches to keys, suitcases, backpacks and other objects.

These devices added to Find works as if they were from Apple. That is, we can locate them on the map, make them sound and put them in lost mode and block them. Also, they could be located even if they don’t have an internet connection, just like iPhones, thanks to Apple’s global network of devices.

Also keep in mind that Apple is working on its own device locator, which would be very similar to the one announced by Chipolo. Known to all as AirTag, its launch could be imminent, especially after this important announcement from Apple.
