Taipei, May 24 (CNA) Apple Inc.'s latest accessory, the AirTag, went on sale in Taiwan on Monday, with consumers placing orders that will be filled in a month's time.

Unveiled by Apple in April, the AirTag can help users track and find any item to which it is attached, including keys, handbags and devices, the American consumer electronics giant says on its website.

Taiwan was not included in the first round of global sales that started April 30, but consumers here can now order the AirTag and await delivery in a month's time, according to Apple Taiwan.

The AirTag is being sold in Taiwan at a price of NT$990 (US$35.48) each and NT$3,390 for a pack of four, in orders placed Monday, Apple Taiwan said.

The AirTag is supported by Apple's Find My app and uses Bluetooth technology, with end-to-end encryption that keeps the user's location data private and anonymous, the company said.

According to Apple, AirTag sends out a secure Bluetooth signal that can be detected by nearby devices on the Find My network, which then sends the location of the AirTag to iCloud, and the user can see the information on a map in the Find My app.

Apple said its voice assistant software Siri also supports the AirTag, allowing the user to give verbal instructions to find the item to which the accessory is attached.
