Apple is developing a tracker, a device designed to help find lost or stolen items. Most commonly lost items are car keys, house keys, and wallets. Apple’s Find My app can be used to locate their information. MacRumors reports that the device has been trademarked “AirTag”. It would be built similarly to Tile, a tracking device. Missing items can be found using Bluetooth or crowdsourcing.
Has the launch of AirTags been postponed?
Apple is expected to announce a release date during the “Hi Speed” event on October 13. In addition, some Apple fans interpreted the circles in the invite as AirTags. They thought it was the most important part of the invitation!
They must however be disappointed with the latest leaks from reliable leakster Jon Prosser. According to his sources, the AirTags launch date has been pushed by 6 months. It will be released in March 2021.
MacRumors mentions AirTags, which were discovered in iOS13 betas. Without a date, they are still in the works. The delay in the launch of AirTags confirms Jon’s theory.
Some tipsters report similar dates for the HomePod Mini, which is also postponed until March 2021.
The animation on Apple’s main site has been changed to the heart animation. With the new image and animation, they deliberately removed the original. Perhaps a hint of what we can expect at “Hi, Speed” on October 13th, which is slowly turning out to be an iPhone 12 centric event.
Is the AirPods Studio launch postponed?
It had been rumored that Apple would launch headphones with the iPhone 12 series. However, the latest leaks by Apple watcher, Jon, confirm that Apple will not unveil its over-ear headphones at least not at the October 13 event.
The delay was due to manufacturing partners missing deadlines. His sources confirm that mass production of the AirPods Studios won’t be completed until October 20th. So you cannot expect a launch, but you can still expect an announcement in the 13 October event. Based on the timelines for completion of mass production, the AirPods Studios should be ready for their debut in November.
