If you have the habit of misplacing your keys or other important things, then Apple has a solution for you. The rumors about the tracking device, tentatively called Air Tags or Apple Tags, have been in the news for quite some time, but according to Apple’s analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the tech giant is all set to launch tens of millions of trackers in the last quarter of this year.
Last year, when the concept was leaked on media platforms, various pictures of the products resembling a Bluetooth tracker device were circulated among the users, and experts speculated that it would use the same technology of ultra-wideband tracker radios as the newest edition of iPhone 11.
Air Tags could possibly be connected to the iCloud account of the users, and this is how they aim to make tracing your things easier. The Find My App is found to assist you in locating lost items, and Apple plans to introduce the Offline Finding features as they did in iOS 13.
According to reports, the tracking device would have circular discs and would be present with Apple’s new U1 location-tracking chip, a part that has already been fitted into iPhone 11.
Now whether the device would be available for public use or not is still not confirmed, but it might be launched at the Apple event scheduled for September. However, the prototypes are already under the production stage, so according to 9to5Mac, if Apple chooses to release them at Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, we wouldn’t be surprised.
