With iOS 15.2 you can manually search for AirTags

One feature added in the second beta of iOS 15.2 is a new option in the Find My app that lets you manually scan AirTags near you and others that can be used to track your compatible Find device.

This functionality can be accessed via the new 'Can follow my project' option in the 'Search for App Projects' menu.

After you click on the link, the app will report if there are any Apple tracking-enabled devices near you that you don't have.

The app can then provide instructions on how to turn off the device. Alternatively, there is an option "Help Return Lost Items" for items that are accidentally and not maliciously near you, which replaces the previous text "Select items found".

AirTag is designed to keep track of items such as lost or stolen keys or bikes. The new beta feature is Apple's latest attempt to allay critics' concerns. They soon pointed out that the little AirTag is also good at tracking people and identifying some of the security flaws Apple listed when it was released.

In June, the company announced a series of initial actions to address these issues. Therefore, AirTag no longer has to wait three full days for the AirTag tracker to leave its owner before the warning bell rings, but instead beeps after 8-24 hours.

Apple also announced that it will develop an app for Android users that will alert them to unwanted trackers. It will be released later this year.

Other changes in the second beta of iOS 15.2 include the introduction of the legacy calling feature the company announced during WWDC 2021, which will allow your loved ones to access your account and personal information when they pass away.

The call security feature also appears in the messaging app. But if she finds nudity in one of the photos, she does not tell her parents.

It encrypts images and only provides secure resources. There is also a new option to hide my email in the Mail app. The interface of the Apple TV app has changed.

But like any iOS beta. Prior to the stable release, these functions could still be changed or removed altogether.
