If you have an AirTag and you’re into Easter eggs, this one is for you. According to The Verge, once you head to the Find My app and select your AirTag, tap your name in the top left corner five times, and you’ll reveal a secret dialog full of sliders and statistics for nerds. In the earliest stages of development, developer would clearly use this menu to debug, so it’s most likely unintentional to leave that menu accessible to the public. Metaphorically speaking, Apple left its blueprint under the house floors that it’s developing.

People got around on Twitter and Reddit to bring attention to this interesting feature. One Reddit user actually discovered this menu after getting frustrating with the app.

Here’s a breakdown on what those data/sliders mean, as one Reddit user suggested:

  • Dots: number of dots in the animation in terms of proximity to the lost item
  • Eco mode: akin to the power reserve mode via a smaller screen resolution
  • Top two sliders: camera blur/brightness
  • A: mixed with view in percentage
  • H: hue
  • S: saturation
  • V: value/brightness

The quality that the middle sigma slider represents remains unknown.

If you have an idea on what that last slider does, let us know in the comments below, or tweet us at @Appleosophy.
