Apple has enabled third-party companies to use Find My to locate lost items, and a handy URL scheme will make the hidden "Find My Items" menu show up within the app.

The UI for the new "Find My Items" feature can be found using a URL scheme discovered by a developer. The feature only shows a menu and cannot perform any functions without a device to locate or add.

The developer supposes this indicates an imminent "AirTags" launch, but this menu will be used for third-party tracking devices too. One of the first companies to take advantage of the service is Belkin with its Find My enabled wireless earbuds.

If you type findmy://items into Safari you'll trigger a URL scheme that launches the Find My app directly to the "Find My Items" screen. Users on iOS and iPadOS can interact with the menu, but the macOS version shows only a "learn more" tab that opens a 404 webpage.
