What I love about Apple technology is its liquidity. Having bought an iPhone on the first day of sales, you can be absolutely sure that in six months it will not be twice as cheap as most Android smartphones and will not lose its relevance. However, the iPhone is the iPhone – a popular and demanded product. Even after 5 years it will be bought from your secondary market without any problems. And there are other, less promoted goods that fall in price much more rapidly. Take at least search beacon AirTag.
AirTag went on sale on the Russian market just a month ago, but has already managed to lose in price by almost a third. If on June 1, the tracker could be bought no cheaper than for 2990 rubles – even from Apple, even from independent retailers – today there are offers of plus or minus for 2000 rubles. You can verify this by examining the assortment on the market, which offers to compare prices, choose the most profitable one and place an order through either Yandex.Market or somewhere else where the price will be lower.
How much does AirTag cost in Russia
Of course, at this price you can buy only one copy of AirTag… And not in gray, but in white retail. I managed to find the best offer for today in DNS. They are sell beacons for 2250 rubles… But, if you choose online payment instead of in-store payment, you will receive a discount of 210 rubles… As a result, a tracker with an official guarantee will cost you a ridiculous 2,040 rubles, which is noticeably cheaper than Apple, which sells them at 2,990 rubles apiece.
And here AirTag kits in Russian retail – at least in gray – they are not particularly common. Moreover, on Yandex.Market not a single seller is represented at all who would trade AirTag set of 4… What is the reason, I have no idea. Apparently, this is why white retailers cost 9990 rubles each – exactly like Apple. And in the best case, what you get is a discount of 300 rubles for online payment when buying in the DNS retail network or an annual MeGoGo subscription when buying in M.Video.
Most likely, the reason for this cheaper AirTag associated with the purchase price for Russian retailers. Despite the fact that Apple itself continues to regularly sell trackers at a price of 2,990 rubles apiece, it cannot but understand that it is possible to attract users to such an unusual product for them only at a low price. Therefore, the company deliberately distributes AirTag among retailers at extremely affordable prices so that they, in turn, do not break prices already in retail.
Should you buy AirTag
Truth, when buying AirTag rememberthat in Russia its functionality will be limited in comparison with European countries and the United States. You can read more about this in the review of the beacon from AppleInsider.ru journalist Artem Sutyagin… But, in a nutshell, we have AirTag does not work with Ultra Wideband technology, which is responsible for geolocation and allows you to determine the location of the tracker with an accuracy of several centimeters, for example, if it is nearby, but out of sight.
Nevertheless, according to those who have already tested the beacon on themselves, this is a very useful thing that allows you to solve even more problems than it might seem at first glance. Thanks to the fact that AirTag relies on the vast infrastructure of Apple devices, it allows you to locate the missing item, regardless of the Internet connection. It simply sends out a distress signal, which is received by the iPhone of people passing by and forwards it to you with the coordinates of the place where this signal was received.
Important: AirTag is not a tracking device, although purely practically it may well be used in this role. Therefore, Apple strongly discourages tracking the movements of your children or pets. The fact is that objects that have freedom of movement – albeit a very conditional one – can wander where there are no passers-by, which means that there is no infrastructure for which. can be relied upon and send a distress signal. So remember that AirTag is primarily about finding things, not people.
