Apple could hardly have thought of this: AirTags are heavily used by car thieves.

Apple AirTags, which allow Apple owners to track their belongings, are increasingly being used to target car thefts in Canada, according to local police.

In a press release from the York Regional Police, investigators have identified a new method used by thieves to track and steal high-end vehicles using AirTag. More precisely, conventional methods are used when stealing, but AirTag allows you to accurately track a premium car until the moment it remains unattended on the street and is easy to steal.

Since September 2021, police officers in the York region alone have investigated five incidents in which suspects used Apple AirTags to steal expensive vehicles. Thieves target any high-value vehicles they find in public areas and parking lots by placing the AirTag so that the owner of the vehicle will not find the gadget. To do this, use the inside of the bumper or the place behind the fuel tank / charging flap.

We started to notice a new trend in the car theft industry. It is these devices that use GPS and Bluetooth technologies for marking. Attackers use them to install them on various cars that they want to steal. Using the iPhone, they can always determine where the car is. They can almost wait and steal later at night.

Electric vehicle solid-state battery maker Factorial Energy receives investment from two more automakers

Published

American solid-state battery developer Factorial Energy has announced that it has received investment from Mercedes-Benz and Stellantis. Each of the automakers intends to work with Factorial Energy to develop solid-state batteries for electric vehicles, following the lead of Hyundai and Kia, which invested in Factorial Energy in early November.

According to Factorial Energy, its specialists have succeeded in making a breakthrough in solid-state batteries for electric vehicles, capable of increasing mileage on a single charge by 20-50%.

The proprietary FEST (Factorial Electrolyte System Technology) technology, which features a solid electrolyte, provides a safer and more reliable operation of a large-capacity cell at the same price as traditional lithium-ion batteries. The development has already been implemented in cells with a capacity of 40 Ah, operating at room temperature. The production of such batteries can be mastered at most of the existing industries engaged in the production of lithium-ion batteries.
