Compiler Error

1 - Ultra-wideband, or UWB for short, is a specific technology for short-range, low-energy, high-bandwidth communication over a large portion of the radio spectrum.
2 - Apple’s U1 chip can accurately position another U1 device within an omnidirectional field of view as long as the devices are within 100 feet of each other.
3 - Formerly known as pulse radio, UWB works by generating radio energy at specific time intervals over a large bandwidth, where the polarity and timing of the pulse determine the data being transmitted.
4 - Despite these devices not having a U1 chip, AirTags are compatible with iPhone SE, iPhone 6s or later so long as they are running iOS 14.5 or later.
