On April 30, 2021, the Apple AirTag made its debut. The Cupertino behemoth has neglected to address numerous contentious stalking incidences nearly a year after its debut. The use of an AirTag to eavesdrop on a person has occurred numerous times over the previous few months, alarming authorities in each occasion. In order to further prevent misuse of the Apple tracking device, the Cupertino-based iPhone manufacturer is currently launching a new anti-stalking function on iPhone iOS 15.4 beta, according to a news report by MacRumors.
