How to check the battery of your AirTag

A little over a year has passed since the official launch of the AirTag and some users are already beginning to question its autonomy, especially considering that its batteries are not rechargeable. However, the duration of this battery is quite long and not only that, we can foresee the change well in advance.

This is how you can check the remaining battery of your AirTag and get ahead of yourself by changing the battery to always have your objects located. It is very simple, and as always, in iPhone News we are going to tell you all the steps in the simplest way.

To begin with, it should be noted that Apple does not offer us a precise way, that is, with a percentage, to know how much battery our AirTag has left. We will have to settle for an image like the one offered in the upper right corner of our iPhone and mentally make an approximate calculation. In theory, the AirTag battery lasts at least a year, although this will depend a lot on the use you give it and how much you check its location, in my case, I still have a lot of autonomy left a year later. Checking it is as simple as this:

  1. Enter the application Search of your Apple device
  2. Choose Objects and then the AirTag whose battery you want to check
  3. When the AirTag specific information is opened, the battery is displayed in the upper left corner, right at the "play sound" location and below the name.

That easy you will be able to check the autonomy of your AirTag. If you have to replace it, you can take a look at our video where we show you step by step, but the first thing you are going to need is a battery CR2032 that you can easily buy on Amazon or your usual point of sale. These batteries (or cells) cost just over one euro per unit, although they usually come in packages.
