That Apple will launch an accessory for tracking objects, no one doubts. In the last few months, several indications and even references in iOS codes have popped up that basically “prove” the arrival of what we call “AirTags”.
AirTags, if you have never heard of them, will work with the U1 chip on the new iPhones (an ultra-precise location technology), should have easily replaceable batteries and will work with the Find app. The idea is that you put one of these accessories in your purse / backpack / wallet (examples only) to be able to monitor your location without much concern – much like an existing product on the market called Tile.
Now, in one stroke, Apple confirmed the veracity not only of the accessory, but also of its name, as informed by Appleosophy.
In a support video posted on your YouTube channel [já removido pela Apple], the company must have used a more advanced version of iOS – not yet available to the general public – in the recording. And that system ended up denouncing things, as we can see in the image below.
See what is written there, under “Enable Offline Search” (“Enable Offline Finding”):
The offline search allows you to find this device and AirTags when you are not connected to a Wi-Fi or cellular network.
That is, it is a matter of time before the AirTags are officially launched by Apple. According to leaker Jon Prosser, this accessory will be launched at WWDC 2020, together with a new MacBook Pro (probably the 13 ″ or 14 ″ with the Magic Keyboard) and new headphones over-ear from Apple:
Anyone excited about the arrival of these product (s)?
