Apple’s rumored AirTags tracker will be slightly larger than a 50 cent coin and around three times the thickness, based on dimensions offered by leaks Max Weinbach (via the YouTube channel EverythingApplePro).
According to Weinbach, AirTags will come in a size measuring 32mm x 32mm x 6mm, which will put the circular devices in the same ballpark diameter-wise as a half dollar piece – slightly smaller than Samsung’s Galaxy SmartTags (39mm x 39mm x 9mm) and slightly larger than a tile sticker (27 mm x 7.3 mm).
An earlier rumor from L0vetodream suggested that Apple would make irAirTags available in two size options, but it’s not clear why two sizes would be necessary.
Based on images found in an internal version of iOS 13, AirTags small are small, circular white tags with an Apple logo on the front. They will probably be attached to objects via glue or an attachment point such as a ring, and there may be several ways to use them on different objects.
According to retail sources, Weinbach says that AirTags are estimated to be priced at around $ 39 each (Samsung’s SmartTags are $ 29.99). When they are launched, that is still the question.
A new “Items” tab enabled by default in the Find My App in iOS 14.5 beta has led to some hope that Apple’s long-awaited AirTags trackers will finally be released soon. Apple said iOS 14.5 will be released in early spring, but a specific release date is still unclear.
Weinbach also believes that Apple will announce new products “soon”, either via a press release or some kind of event, even if the rumors of events remain dark at best. According to a YouTube video by hit-or-miss leaker Jon Prosser, Apple plans to host an April event this year.
Prosser himself acknowledges that it is worth treating this rumor in April with some skepticism, since it would be Apple’s first April event in 11 years, but he says that the source he got this from has a perfect track record.
In any case, Weinbach’s retail source tells him that they expect three new products to fall into the category of tablets, laptops and accessories.
The usability is “likely” to be new seasonal Apple Watch bands, new colors for the solo loop bands, and possibly a new band style. The rumored new iPad Pro is the new tablet, while AirTags falls into the accessories category.
Volume shipments of mini-LED display components for a new 12.9-inch iPad Pro will reportedly begin in the second quarter of 2021, which runs from April to June. BloombergMark Gurman has previously claimed that Apple plans to announce new iPads as early as April, including new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models.
