The long wait for AirTags will end this fall, according to an unconfirmed report. Leaks and rumors about Apple̵
7;s branding continued to circulate over the past year. But it seems that the debut is just around the corner, in the end.
AirTags about to be found
Apple will take the rejections from AirTags in the second half of October, at the same event as the iPhone 12 will be announced. At least, sources in Apple’s Chinese supply chain said Mac Treasure Appraisal Blog, better known as Macotakara. ->
For a touch of confirmation, reliable TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo actually said the same thing in February.
Apparently the wait should not be so long. Apple originally planned to release AirTags this spring along with the iPhone SE 2020, according to Macotakara. But Apple reportedly had problems. What these were, however, is unknown.
More about Apple’s UWB product trackers
AirTags will reportedly be Apple’s entry into a new product category: product trackers. Attach one of these to something – a keychain, suitcase or pet – and it can be located using the same application as Find My iPhone. The tags will use ultra-broadband technology, where radio signals are transmitted over a wide area of the radio spectrum. UWB can determine the distance between sender and receiver with great accuracy.
The code found buried in iOS 13 shows that AirTags may be part of a pressure towards augmented reality. For example, hidden objects may appear on an iPhone screen with AR balloons.
The prices for this upcoming accessory are still unknown.
