When Apple launched its device tracking accessory, the AirTag, it did so to plenty of fanfare. It was just one more Apple-branded device that was designed to help with everyday tasks. However, since the accessory's launch there has been a lot of concern about stalking and property theft. Apple has added features to help alleviate some of those issues, but now the company is going one step further with a dedicated user guide to help smooth over some of the wrinkles.

The Find My network is one of the most helpful utilities Apple offers. And it became even better when the company introduced the ability for third-party companies to tap into that same feature.

Way back in June of this year, when Apple first introduced iOS 15, one of the features baked into the software was better support for Find My integration with both AirPods Pro and AirPods Max. However, by the time iOS 15 was ready to launch to the public (back in September), that feature did not make the cut. Now, a little over two weeks later, it's finally here.

With iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, you get time-sensitive left behind notifications if you leave your Apple devices, AirTags, and other Find My-supported accessories accidentally at unknown places. This is possible thanks to the separation alerts you receive after enabling Notify When Left Behind in the Find My app.

It is a helpful, new feature to ensure you do not walk away forgetting your expensive devices and items. Let us show you how to set up and use Notify When Left Behind in the Find My app on iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. Plus, if you are annoyed by it at your house or known places, we also have the steps to turn it off for all or selected locations.
