Apple’s new Siri Remote arrived without a built-in locator chip, so Elago has created the next best thing: the R5 silicone case with a slot for Apple’s new AirTag tracker. According to Elago, it features a “THICK LAYER OF PREMIUM SILICONE,” which is so dense it can only be expressed in caps.

The $14.99 price doesn’t include the cost of the $29 AirTag, but it does promise to put an end to lost Siri remotes, especially if you own an iPhone fitted with UWB to enable precision tracking. It costs a lot more than comparable AirTag cases available on AliExpress that list for just a few dollars, but well, this one can be found on Amazon for whatever that’s worth. Alternatively, you could always just 3D-print your own case if you’re in more of a DIY mood.
