It's happened to the best of us. You're out and about, and suddenly you hear that beeping noise that can only mean one thing: you've left your AirTags at home. If this has happened to you, don't panic! Just follow these simple steps to fix the 'phantom' AirTag alert issue.
If you've been suddenly inundated with phantom AirTag alerts, you're not alone. According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, an Apple spokesperson has acknowledged that some iPhones are getting ""temporarily confused"" by weak or overlapping Wi-Fi signals. The problem seems to be most acute for users who have just upgraded to iOS 11.x and is exacerbated by the fact that many stores are now using Wi-Fi signals to track customers' movements. There is a temporary fix for the first problem at least, which is to toggle location services off and then on again on the phone. If you open up the iOS Settings screen on your iPhone, you should see a banner at the top of the screen informing you about the issue. As yet we don't know if a software patch will be required to fix the issue permanently.
