Hi all. I recently changed from an iPhone to an Android device, and have since sent the iPhone back to AT&T. I had an Airtag that I want to give my wife, but I forgot to remove it from the Find My app on the phone before sending it off. I tried going to the Find My app through, but that does not list my Airtag. What other way could I remove this Airtag if I have no access to an iOS device? Every search on Google says it has to be done through an iOS device. I'm guessing my Airtag is now just a waste but I'm hoping it's not. Any advice?

If you're plan is to give it to your wife, I would assume that means she has an IOS device. Make a back up of her phone, then do a factory restore on it, set it up on your account, reset air tag, restore her phone back to her account from the back up.
