    Airtag for Checked Bags

    This wasn't possible under the initial release nearly two years ago, it was still missing in the iOS 12 update, and now that we have iOS 13 is this STILL not possible? What I want is a way to say, "Hey Siri, play my Morning Playlist at 7:15AM." Interestingly enough, my $30 Google Mini can do...

Seem like this capability should have been present on the original HomePod release and if it is still missing then something is seriously wrong with the HomePod development team (IMO). Well, they did add...
