The pandemic outbreak postponed the release schedules of many leading brands like Apple by weeks, if not months. However, it didn’t mean other things were not keeping up the pace. A recently leaked development suggested Apple was working on a Bluetooth tracker called ‘Apple AirTags’.

In a deleted support page video, the Cupertino giant accidentally showed an Airtags tile, laying the fertile ground for the dissemination of rumors. Most experts believe, Air Tag would run built-in chips. These chips would allow AirTags to connect to any item and locate the tagged things by relaying its position via a Bluetooth signal.
AirTags will also support an offline finding feature, meaning it may not require a Wi-Fi or cellular connection to be located. The tracking device will link to the users’ iCloud account. This will enable it to receive notifications when their iOS device gets far away from the tag.
Technology experts also believe AirTags will be more accurate than average Bluetooth item trackers. Why? The device will use ultra-wideband technology. It offers more accurate indoor positioning over existing Bluetooth LE and Wi-Fi options – within centimeters.
There’s no fixed date for when Apple would put these AirTags up for sale. However, if things do materialize, and AirTags become a reality, the Find My app will be a one-stop-shop for anything that you want to find.
Currently, there’s no word about the availability of the product. Speculations are ripe, the Bluetooth-enabled tracker could be seen, soon. If not, we’d have to wait until WWDC, set to be hosted digitally somewhere in mid-June.
At present, there’s no information available with us about Apple Airtags price.
Hope that makes sense!
