Apple Working on New AirTag After Three Years


According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple is planning to release a new version of its AirTag for the first time in three years. AirTags are small, round devices that help you keep track of your belongings. They’re especially handy for travelers who want to ensure their valuables are always within reach. Despite their simplicity and infrequent need for updates, it seems Apple is ready to enhance this handy gadget.

The new AirTag is expected to feature an improved chip for better tracking capabilities. This update is crucial, as three years is a long time in the tech world. The updated version, codenamed B589, is anticipated to hit the market around mid-2025.

Bloomberg didn’t reveal many details about the new features, but with a device like the AirTag, improved location tracking is the primary goal. Some users might also appreciate enhancements to the alert system.

Security is another critical area for updates. Small, discreet trackers can potentially be misused by stalkers or other malicious individuals. Fortunately, a recent iOS update includes a feature that alerts you if an unknown AirTag or other third-party tracker is detected near you, ensuring better personal safety.

Additionally, longer battery life would be beneficial, especially for daily users and frequent travelers. Being able to locate your valuables without worrying about a dead battery is essential.

We’ll keep you updated with any new information about the 2025 AirTag. There’s a chance Apple might mention it at their annual WWDC event from June 10-14, but that remains uncertain.
