iOS 14.6 Users Can Use An Email Address With AirTag Lost Mode
Apple’s latest iOS 14.6 beta brings with it a slight tweak to the way AirTag Lost Mode works. With the new update installed users are finding that they can now enter an email address as a method of being contacted when someone finds an AirTag with Lost Mode activated.
Previously, people were only able to give Lost Mode a phone number.
Enter an email address in case someone finds your item and wants to contact you. Once you enable Lost Mode, this email address will be visible to the person who finds your item. This allows others to contact you whenever your lost items are found.
Apple’s Lost Mode allows an AirTag finder to scan it and then be presented with information on how to reach its rightful owner. So much so, that the AirTag has already been hacked where it can be set up to display a custom URL when in Lost Mode.
Apple’s iOS 14.6 is currently in the beta testing state with no indication on when it will be made available to the public. However, given Apple’s rate of releases right now we don’t imagine it will be too long before it’s rolled out to everyone.
The iOS 14.6 update also includes the upcoming Apple Podcasts Subscription platform as well as a number of bug fixes relating to the Podcasts app and more.
