Apple's AirTags have been sending out "phantom" alerts that are confusing iPhone users


Apple's AirTags have been sending out "phantom" alerts that are confusing iPhone users, according to a new Wall Street Journal report.


The AirTags, which were introduced last year, include anti-stalking features that alert users when an unknown AirTag is detected on their person for an extended period of time. The idea is to discourage AirTags from being used to track people without their consent. According to the WSJ, these false alerts typically occur in the middle of the night and have become more common in recent weeks. When a person receives an unknown AirTag alert, they should be able to view an accompanying map that shows where and how long the AirTag was detected on However, these false alarms are accompanied by maps that show several straight lines radiating from a person's location.
