Apple could dole out an interesting device early next year targeted at fanboys who can’t seem to keep a tab on things like keys, wallets, luggage or cards. It will have deep iOS integration for Apple devices and work over Bluetooth LE to ensure accurate tracking of anything that the user feels can be lost in the sea of things. Although it was slated for a 2020 release, due to turn of events, AirTags are now expected to now launch in spring next year.
According to Jon Prosser, a trusted leakster, the tile-like device will use Ultra-Wideband radio for accurate tracking of items with Apple AirTags clipped on. It will be based on the end-to-end encrypted Find My security and privacy feature and will charge wirelessly.
Once the tagged item is out of range, the user will be sent a notification. In that case, the Find My app will direct the user toward the location where the item can be found.
