For several months we know that Apple is working on a new type of small device that we can place in any of our belongings to locate them where they are from our iPhone or iPad. In iOS 13 references to this device have already been found that it seems that It will be called AirTag and that should be presented throughout this 2020.
We have been waiting for a launch for months, and nobody seems to be able to agree on whether the AirTags will be presented at the beginning of the year at the rumored keynote on March 31, or if Apple will launch them at the end of the year, coinciding with the presentation of the iPhone 12. Anyway, today comes to us a new report that reveals new details about this small device.
‘AirTags’ will be charged wirelessly
We know that Apple bets a lot on wireless charging technology, devices such as the Apple Watch can only be charged in this way and it is speculated that from 2021 Apple will eliminate the Lightning charging port of its iPhone. And as reported by the Japanese media Macotakara, the new ‘AirTag’ will also be loaded in this way.

The new report ensures that these locator tags will arrive in autumn and that they will be loaded wirelessly. Not clear if they used a proprietary charger, probably one similar to Apple Watch, or will be compatible with the Qi standard and can be loaded on any charging base. They will also be “Completely waterproof”, so we should not be afraid to leave them outdoors.
This information is consistent with that of Ming-Chi Kuo last week. Apparently Apple has thought increase the production of its ultra-broadband chips during the third quarter of the year, suggesting a launch in September of Apple AirTags. Apple labels will probably use the U1 chip that the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro already have that allows you to locate devices with an augmented reality experience showing exactly where they are. Hope to see you soon.
