Source: VanMoof, San Francisco, April 7, 2021 – LEVA-EU member VanMoof is announcing that their S3 and X3 e-bikes ordered from now on, will work with Apple’s Find My app. VanMoof is one of the first e-mobility brands to join Apple’s Find My network. Riders are now able to add their latest VanMoof bikes to the new Items tab in the Find My app, allowing them to find and track their bike in a private and secure way using the vast and global Find My network, made up of hundreds of millions of Apple devices.
This integration with Apple’s Find My app fits seamlessly into VanMoof’s vision of the future. “We’re ushering the future of cycling into the present day,” says Ties Carlier, co-founder of VanMoof. “In the near future, when bikes are the primary mode of transportation in cities, this will come in handy as it gives riders around the world peace of mind they’ll be able to swiftly locate their ride.” With the new Items tab in the Find My app, riders can now locate their bike on a map from iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
VanMoof is one of the first brands to implement this capability and was able to do so because of its in-house product philosophy and the pre-existing advanced tech of their bikes. The new Find My network accessory program enables third-party companies to build finding capabilities into their products, letting riders use Apple’s Find My app to locate and keep track of their important items.
The Find My network, a network of hundreds of millions of Apple devices, can locate their e-bike while utilizing all of the network’s built-in privacy and security protections. The Apple Find My network is anonymous and uses advanced encryption. This means that no one else – not even Apple or VanMoof – can view the location of the riders.
VanMoof has always been actively seeking the best tech offerings in the cycling market. With this new capability, VanMoof has shown it is ready to welcome the future of cycling. The number of e-bikes worldwide has recently increased dramatically; the global e-bike market forecasted to reach $46B+ by 2026. The global e-bike boom has resulted in cities across the world working hard to find spatial solutions to create parking spaces, bike racks, and necessary infrastructure for cyclists.
