Medical device interference
AirTag contains components and radios that emit electromagnetic fields. AirTag also contains magnets. These electromagnetic fields and magnets may interfere with pacemakers, defibrillators, or other medical devices. Maintain a safe distance of separation between your medical device and AirTag. Consult your physician and medical device manufacturer for information specific to your medical device. Stop using AirTag if you suspect it is interfering with your pacemaker, defibrillator, or any other medical device.
When using this product in areas where the air is very dry, it is easy to build up static electricity. To minimize the risk of electrostatic discharge, avoid using this product in extremely dry environments, or touch a grounded unpainted metal object before using.
Important handling information

When use of Ultra Wideband is prohibited in your region, such as while traveling in aircraft, Ultra Wideband can be turned off by turning on Airplane mode on a paired Ultra Wideband-compatible Apple device. On the paired Ultra Wideband-compatible Apple device, open Control Center, then tap the airplane icon. You can also turn Airplane mode on or off in Settings. When Airplane mode is on, the airplane icon appears in the status bar.
Ultra Wideband features require a paired Ultra Wideband-compatible Apple device. Ultra Wideband availability varies by region.
