Chipolo joins the Apple Find My network accessory program
7th April 2021, Slovenia: Chipolo, the award-winning item-finding company, is launching their special edition Chipolo ONE Spot, which works exclusively with Apple’s Find My network and the Find My app. This means that users can pair the Chipolo ONE Spot to the Find My app on their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac to track and find their lost belongings using the vast Find My network, made up of hundreds of millions of Apple devices around the world.1
Created for Apple users, the Chipolo ONE Spot will allow them to locate not just misplaced but also missing personal items, whether enjoying a walk, commuting to work or travelling abroad. Featuring a water-resistant and lightweight design of the Chipolo, users will truly be able to go anywhere and everywhere with peace of mind.
The Chipolo ONE Spot is available in the color Almost Black, making it a stylish and useful accessory that easily attaches to keys, luggage, backpacks or even a child’s toy. This special edition retains its premium status without any additional hidden subscriptions or premium fees.
The Find My network accessory program enables the Chipolo ONE Spot to utilize Apple’s Find My app to securely locate and keep track of personal items. After connecting the accessory to the Find My app in a few easy steps, users will be able to take advantage of several helpful features:
- Locate items: Connect the Chipolo ONE Spot with your chosen Apple devices and access the last known locations of items through the Find My app.
- Play sound: If Chipolo ONE Spot is nearby, you can play a sound to easily locate it.
- Lost Mode: Should an item ever go missing, it can be put in Lost Mode and the Find My network will notify the owner when it is located. If a lost Chipolo ONE Spot is found by someone other than the owner, they can use the Find My app on any iPhone to identify it and be taken to a website that will display a simple message and contact phone number that can be used to return it.
- Security: The Apple Find My network uses advanced encryption to ensure that no one else, not even Apple or Chipolo, can view the location of the Chipolo ONE Spot.
Along with all of the other familiar Chipolo ONE features:
- Long Battery Life: A lengthy 12 month time span.
- Replaceable Battery: Reduce waste with the option to replace the battery.
- Loud Sound: A 120dB ring.
- Water Resistant: To survive all unexpected splashes.
Primož Zelenšek, CEO of Chipolo explains, “We are always working to bring new editions and features to our Chipolo range for both our new and long-term users. We are extremely excited to announce the Find My-enabled Chipolo ONE Spot, which enables users to find more than just misplaced items and offers a solution for those which are truly lost — all while maintaining privacy using advanced encryption so user data and information is protected. This introduces a new level of peace of mind when it comes to keeping your valuables safe and accounted for.”
The Chipolo ONE Spot will be available for pre-order in May, with shipping in the beginning of June, from the Chipolo website, BestBuy.com and BestBuy.ca. People can join the email list on the Chipolo webpage and get early access to pre-orders of the limited first batch.
