An increasing number of users are reporting that AirTags are no longer in the Find My app after updating to iOS 15.

A bug in iOS 15 appears to remove the AirTag or make it unable to appear within the Find My app. Some users report success in re-adding the AirTag after performing a factory reset on the device.

AppleInsider recommends AirTag owners go into their Find My app and ensure they still appear there. Any AirTag that is missing will need a factory reset to be re-added to Find My.

The issue hasn't been widely reported, but since it requires the user to look for the AirTag in Find My, it could be a largely unnoticed issue. However, the bug can affect anyone who updated to iOS 15.

And, it's better to check before you need to rely on the AirTag to find a lost item.

Apple has released the beta for iOS 15.1, however, the company has been known to release hotfix updates without betas. An iOS 15.01 update could happen at any time to address reported bugs, like another bug dealing with storage reporting.
