After years of rumors, Apple’s AirTags were officially announced on Tuesday afternoon.

The tracking accessory, which helps users find whatever the AirTag is attached to, made its debut during the company’s Spring Loaded virtual event on April 20.

The small device is designed to stick to other products and everyday items, like keys or wallets. Once attached, you can use the AirTags and your iPhone to find your item if it gets lost.

The tiny accessory takes the form of a circular tag with the signature Apple logo. The AirTags integrate with Apple’s “Find My” app, and the app uses augmented reality to show visual markers leading you toward your lost item.

Apple AirTags will be available to preorder this Friday, April 23, for $29. The device is expected to start shipping on April 30.
