Back in August this year, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted Apple AirTag 2 will enter mass production in the last quarter of 2024 hinting at its launch in late 2024 or early 2025. Turns out the mass production for the next-gen Apple AirTag 2 has been postponed to 2025 which affects its launch timeline as well.
Mass production of Apple AirTag 2 delays to 2025
According to the latest prediction by Kuo, AirTag 2 will undergo mass production in 2025 although there’s no timeline available as of now. If the above statement turns out to be true, we won’t be seeing Apple AirTag 2 in 2024 and the launch will be pushed to sometime in 2025 as well.
There’s little known about the purported successor to 2021’s Apple AirTag smart tracker. It will likely bring onboard the iPhone 15 series’ updated U2 Ultra-wideband (UWB) chip that would allow for more precise tracking indoors. Kuo says the upcoming AirTag 2 belongs to the new spatial computing ecosystem at Apple where Vision Pro will be at the core integrating other devices along the way but exactly how remains shrouded in mystery as of now.
There is no official word on the design, form factor, feature additions, or any other details regarding AirTag 2. We are aware that it will bring better precision tracking indoors than the previous iteration which received mixed responses especially after people started using it for surveillance and unwanted tracking. Do note that this issue has been fixed so far with constant software updates that AirTags get OTA through their paired devices.
We will have to wait for more time to get insights on what the purported Apple AirTag 2 brings to the table. Meanwhile, you can check out the latest Apple iPhone 16 Pro Leaks that made their way through the internet.
