Apple’s AirTags, originally expected to launch alongside the M1 MacBooks, still don’t have a concrete release date. Renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has now said that Apple is getting to unveil the AirTags and an AR device sometime in 2021. However, no specific launch date is mentioned, so it might be released anytime during the year. Ideally, Apple would have the best to showcase alongside the soon-to-be-released iPad Pro. Things get a touch ambiguous when it involves the augmented-reality device. While Google and Microsoft have both tried their hands during this field, none has found great success yet. So it’s hard to take a position what Apple has future for us at now. It could even be an AR headset that works in tandem with iPhones/iPads to deliver a more interactive user experience.
The AirTags and Augmented Reality Headset join a laundry list of devices that Apple has a future for us in 2021. For starters, there are quite a few Apple Silicon-powered MacBooks within the works, alongside an upgraded version of the Apple M1 chip. Several MacBook and iPad variants will get refreshed with mini-LED screens also. we will also expect to ascertain a full-fledged iMac running Apple silicon make its debut in 2021.
Regardless of when Apple plans on launching the AirTags, Samsung is going to be before the curve already, because the company’s SmartTags are going to be unveiled alongside the Galaxy S21 series of smartphones. Both products leverage the ultra-wideband chip found in iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones to seem for objects nearby. It works by transmitting high-energy waves within the immediate vicinity that scan a receiver. However, it’s a really limited range, so it’d not be ready to detect an object that’s too far away.
