Apple has postponed the announcement of AirTags more than once. According to rumors, they are already fully ready and will be presented this fall: perhaps a press release will simply appear on the Apple website, as was the case with AirPods Pro and other devices, or the tags may be shown at the November event, where new Macs based on Apple chips will be presented Silicon.
New patents describe labels for tracking physical objects that are identical in shape to those rendered on the web. It is stated that the tags will be durable and waterproof to attach to various objects.
In addition to the obvious search for things, labels will be used for other purposes: they can be placed in certain zones and assign actions when a user appears.
But there is another interesting scenario: trackers will be placed on the user’s body to track posture, workouts and even control the character in the game. Perhaps we are waiting for a product that is much more interesting and unusual than we imagine.
For charging, judging by the images, the Apple Watch platform is used. It is possible that AirTag will be charged by the recently announced MagSafe. Well, we are waiting for key rings with a pocket for AirTag.
