Two women file class action lawsuits against Apple

(CNN) - Two women are suing Apple over their exes' use of AirTags to secretly track their movements and whereabouts in real-time.

For further context, Apple introduced AirTags, which retail for $29, in 2021.

They work by connecting to iPhones and iPads via Bluetooth and can detect approximate locations.

"There's a risk of misuse...the manufacturer of the product can be held liable for any misuse of the product. But in this case, the product's doing what it's supposed to do. It's tracking where the AirTag is. In fact, if you made that impossible, then the AirTag wouldn't be useful," Cyber and Privacy Expert Mark Rasch said.

The California lawsuit accuses Apple of negligence, design defects and privacy violations.

An Apple spokesperson declined to comment directly on the lawsuit.

Instead, the company pointed to a February statement on “unwanted tracking” with AirTags.

The company said “We condemn in the strongest possible terms.”

Apple now has information on what to do when alerted of an AirTag.
