“The joint unwanted tracker alert specification by Google and Apple was published on December 22. We are now waiting for an update about the timeline for the implementation of the protections against unwanted tracking for iOS.

After that, we can expect Google’s new timeline for rolling out the Find My Device app update which is necessary for Point products to work.

In the meantime, we are hard at work updating Point firmware to match the new specs.”
