How to turn on separation alerts on iPhone

Thanks to AirTags, a new feature has been added to the Search app with iOS 15: separation alerts. With this feature turned on, you’ll receive notifications when any device linked to your Apple ID, such as a MacBook, iPad, AirPods Pro or Max, or an item attached to an AirTag, moves away from your iPhone.

In other words, if there is this separation between your iPhone and the other device or item, the Search app identifies that you forgot or left something behind and sends you notifications with separation alerts.

But don’t worry, you won’t get frantic notifications when you leave your MacBook at home, for example, or your iPad at work. You can add Trusted Locations, that is, places you can “forget” and leave devices and items linked to your Apple ID, without receiving frequent alerts about your locations.
