This will be AirTag, the new Apple product that could be presented soon — 2022

Rumors about a possible Apple event for the March 31st are increasing in the last hours. This act would serve for the company to present new devices to the public, among which would be the AirTag, an accessory that would be used to locate lost objects. Below we tell you more details.

Apple AirTags could surprise us

Since the beginning of the year we have witnessed numerous reports that indicate that March will be a key month for Apple in terms of product launches. The rumored iPhone 9 or SE 2 would be one of the protagonists, accompanying the fourth generation of iPad Pro and a foreseeable renewal in one or several ranges of Mac. In principle, these may not have really outstanding news by themselves to star in a keynote , but the AirTag is, as it is a completely new product.

In the market there are some accessories such asTilethat allow to locate objects and these AirTag aim to be similar, but with added functions. From the information that has been handled so far, a circular shape for these accessories can be intuited, although it is not known exactly if they will be in sticker format, keychain or a set of various designs. What does seem clear is that they will be unified in the Search app. This was evidenced a few months ago in the internal code of iOS, which contained the possible interface of these accessories and their view on a map.

In addition to allowing objects to be located through sounds or on a map, AirTags would have interesting augmented reality features . For example, in the event that we want to locate an object in a room, through the camera we could visualize the room and see the place where the object to which we have added the AirTag is superimposed.

The launch would be imminent after the presentation

While the production of other new devices seems to have serious delays due to the Chinese coronavirus, the truth is that these may not be affecting the AirTag. So at least the analyst has reported in the last hoursMing-Chi Kuo, stating that the suppliers of these components would have 60% of orders already closed. Also noteworthy in said information is the possibility that they carry a chip U1 designed by Apple itself as ultra-wideband support.

In this way we can foresee that the market launch could take place even the day after its hypothetical presentation, the April 1st. However, we will have to continue waiting to confirm it, since perhaps the Cupertino company's strategy handles the possibility of launching it along with the rest of the new products, which could be delayed.

In any case, we must continue waiting to know more exactly all the characteristics of the AirTag, or as they are finally called, including the price. All this could be filtered prior to the announcement of the firm directed by Tim Cook, so we will be attentive.
