The AirTags were released by Apple in April 2021, and they are small, wearable trackers. As of this writing, there is no indication that Apple is working on a second-generation AirTag. However, a new tweet from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that Cupertino might release a new version of its little trackers.
The shipments of Apple’s AirTags have “gradually expanded,” according to Kuo, and if they continue to rise, Apple may build a second generation of these useful devices. Kuo revealed this information via Twitter. AirTag’s shipment estimates for 2021 and 2022 are around 20 million and 35 million, respectively, according to Kuo. We can plainly notice a 75% increase in the number of people purchasing Apple trackers.
After all, we shouldn’t be surprised by the surge in sales. Apple’s AirTags have been shown to be really beneficial, especially when you’re looking for your missing keys. Because AirTags are part of Apple’s ecosystem, they are exceptionally easy to use with an iPhone and are the best option if you like to use Cupertino’s devices.
We don’t know what additional features the prospective next-generation AirTags might have because Kuo didn’t indicate what enhancements we might expect from a potential new generation of Apple’s trackers. But if Kuo is correct and the trend of customers purchasing more and more AirTags continues, we may see Cupertino announce a second-generation AirTag tracker.
AirTags have grown in popularity among iPhone owners over time due to their usefulness in tracking down misplaced items. Unfortunately, despite the fact that Apple’s AirTags are quite useful, some people have discovered methods to abuse them. There are a few features, and even an Android app, that can assist you in finding out if someone is following you around with an AirTag.
However, when you think about it, scanning yourself for bugs every time you enter your house like a secret agent from a spy movie is a little strange.
