Apple’s mythical AirTags shimmer slowly to release

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Apple seems to be closer to actually introducing the near-mythical AirTags, which you’ll no doubt use to track hardware, devices, and the vehicles that make up your transit fleet.

What we think we know

This is a long-running story. We first began to anticipate introduction of these products after WWDC 2019. Later, we thought they might show up even before the iPhone 12, or even as part of the company’s holiday season launches.

It didn’t happen.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently claimed they will appear this year. But even he couldn’t say precisely when, though if they happen at all I’d speculate on a March introduction.

What are AirTags, anyway?

We think AirTags are white, round and about the size of a soda bottle top. They contain low-power Bluetooth and a battery and should last several weeks between each wireless Qi charge.

They make use of a highly secure Bluetooth mesh technology (and potentially the U1 Ultra-wideband tech Apple began deploying with iPhone 11), iCloud, and Apple’s Find My service. AirTags work with other Apple devices to deliver secure and private location services. If you lose your keys in a field and they have one of these things attached to them, you’ll be able to find them using AirTags — so long as someone using an Apple device is near.
