AirTag 2 again rumored to be announced in 2025

It’s been three years since Apple introduced AirTag, its item tracker that integrates with Apple devices. However, little has been heard about Apple’s plans for a new generation except that it should arrive by 2025. Now we have more details on what to expect from the second-generation AirTag.

Rumors on AirTag 2

As reported by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman on Sunday, a new version of AirTag “is scheduled to arrive around the middle of next year.” The original AirTag was announced in April 2021, so it’s possible that the company will launch the second generation around the same time next year.

The journalist also reported that Apple has been doing manufacturing tests with its partners in Asia in order to ship the product (codenamed B589) in 2025.

But what exactly can we expect from the second-generation AirTag (or just AirTag 2)? According to Gurman, “a better chip with improved location tracking.” Potentially, AirTag 2 will have the same second-generation Ultra-Wideband chip as the iPhone 15, Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2 models.

While the U1 chip only works over a distance of a few meters (around 10 meters), the second generation of Apple’s UWB chip works over long distances of up to 60 meters. This enabled the company to create a new feature that lets users find their friends with Precision Finding.

Apple could also introduce new versions of AirTag in different shapes, although this hasn’t been rumored. Of course, new AirTag accessories wouldn’t be out of the question either.
