How to Replace AirTag Battery

How to recharge your AirTag? Well, for instance, Apple has chosen to use standard batteries, which makes AirTag recharge quite easily.

Once found, follow the steps to replace the AirTag batteries below:

  • To open your AirTag, you have to press on its metal part. You will feel it sink in and then you can rotate it counter-clockwise. The cover can be removed.
  • Then just flip the AirTag upside down to pop the battery.
  • Place your new CR2032 inside and close the hood by holding it down and twisting it the other way.
  • The AirTag will emit a small noise.
  • In your iPhone’s Find My app, the low battery logo will then disappear.
  • Apple will no longer show the percentage of battery remaining on its tracker, but normally your AirTag will now last more than a year.
