Apple AirTags could be available soon, when will it be official? — 2022
AirTags, the quintessential Apple ghost product (with permission from the ill-fated AirPower). These locator accessories have been planned for a long time and are not just rumors, but Apple itself has 'snuck' them into the code of various versions of iOS for more than a year. Now the information says again that they are imminent, once again. Will the forecasts be right this time or will they fail again? We analyze everything.
What exactly is this accessory?
Officially you can not talk about features of this device. Its design has been leaked by some analysts such as Jon Prosser, being a kind of plates that could be stuck on any object or device. They have even seen each othercheap covers and keychains for AirTagson Amazon. Basically they would serve to provide location technology to the objects that carry it, accessible from the Search app on iPhone, iPad and Mac, yes, it will be necessary to knowWhat are the steps to follow when an AirTag is lost?. Other Apple devices are also expected to serve as beacons to send data to the company's servers when those items are lost or stolen. The latter is probably the key factor, being able to weave a much broader network of devices than the competition has, with Tile accessories being the most prominent today.
It was going to be released at the end of 2020 (but no)
Apple broadcast three product launch events last fall, and with an accessory like AirTags referenced long ago, it was assumed that they would be seen at one of them. The main Apple analysts predicted it as well and there was even talk that the piece of his video presentation had been recorded. This did not happen and although it can be said that the analysts were wrong, some kind of unresolved legal process could have also arisen and for which Apple could not announce it.
Everything points to seeing the AirTags in March
Given this history, to say that AirTags are imminent again is taking too big a gamble. However, this is what sources close to the company are now saying. The fact that the company could perform a special event to present products such as the iPad Pro 2021 or the AirPods 3, something recently denied by Mark Gurman, would further increase the possibility of seeing the AirTags.
Of course, they could be some accessories that perfectly present themselves through a press release . Although it is a new product line of the company, it does not seem that they are going to have a high expectation with them to give it relevance in an event that would already be somewhat decaffeinated. In any case, it seems that Apple is running out of time, even more so when companies like Samsung have gone ahead of it in launching accessories of this type. We will continue to be attentive to new information that arises in this regard, because there are AirTags, although how and when is already on its way to being one of Apple's great mysteries.
