Apple has released a new Find My Certification Asst app today to allow third-party companies to test how their accessories will work with the Find My application. At WWDC 2020, Apple announced that it would open up the Find My network to third-party products for the first time.
Find My Certification Asst App
TechCrunch first detected the new app that hit the App Store on Sunday, April 4. In the app's description, Apple describes that this app is required for companies contemplating integrating with the Find My network.
“Use the Find My Certification Assistant to test discovery, connection, and other key requirements for accessories you develop that incorporate Find My network technology. For more information about Find My network certification, visit the MFi Portal at mfi.apple.com.”
Some companies have already advertised products that will be ready to integrate with the Find My network. The app's launch is a significant milestone for third-party hardware to be tracked in the Find my App along with Apple products.
“Introducing a new program that will let customers locate your products using the vast Find My network's power. With hundreds of millions of Apple devices around the world, advanced end-to-end encryption, and industry leading security, allowing users to locate their items within the Find My app with the peace of mind that their privacy is protected.”

The launch of the Find My Certification Assistant App hints that Apple could be nearing the probability of third-party accessories integrate with the Find My application. Apple's iOS 14.5 beta enables new features in the Find My app, including the new “Items” tab.
The Find My Certification Asst app emphasizes an icon that shows three distinct things: headphones, a suitcase, and a backpack. Not coincidentally, maybe, Tile's first integrations occurred with Bose headphones and luggage and bag makers, Herschel and Away. Meanwhile, Apple's AirTag rumors have suggested they could be released this spring, but item trackers are nowhere to be found as of yet.
