Back in 2019, a report surfaced online that claims that Apple is working on new small Bluetooth tracker devices called the “AirTag” which might come out soon from the company’s end. These devices were claimed to work as a locator to find your things that have these tags stuck on them.
Even, last year, 9to5Mac also found a bit of string in the iOS 13 code that reveals that Apple is working on AirTags. And now, the company itself accidentally leaked the rumored AirTag’s existence in iPhone via one of its how-to guide videos.
In a how-to guide video released by Apple with the title “How to erase your iPhone,” Apple was demonstrating how to erase your iPhone to the factory reset condition. In the same demonstration, while showing how to disable Find My iPhone, an option called “Enable Offline Finding” reveals a description that mentions the AirTag. Well, this video is already taken down by the company but still grabbed by some of the leaksters.
This is not a new technology for a tech giant like Apple. The company has already shown such features with iOS 13 that can be used to track a lost iPhone via a Bluetooth beacon signal that it can transmit. It is expected that the AirTag will work in the same way. Once attached with an item, they would transmit a Bluetooth signal that can be picked up by other devices to help track the item down.
As of now, there is no word from the company on when this new AirTag device will be revealed by them. However, we can expect to see them in real-life soon in the coming months.
