Apple will hold a new media event tomorrow, September 15, and leaker Jon Prosser says that we might see it announce AirTags during the event.

The Tile-like trackers have been expected to be released for more than a year at this point and Prosser says that the wait could come to an end as soon as tomorrow’s media event. He also shared more details as well as the first images of renders based on a video of the real tags.

According to Prosser’s latest YouTube video, the new AirTags will be round and won’t have any kind of mounting mechanism. That means that, unlike Tiles, AirTags won’t have a native way for people to mount them to keychains and whatnot. However, Prosser suggests that this will mean both first and third-party accessories will fill that role. You will be able to buy pouches and other accessories that AirTags can be placed into, for example.

AirTags will sue the Apple U1 chip that will enable very precise location tracking and they’ve been rumored for a long, long time. Now Prosser says that they will “likely” be announced tomorrow while also covering himself should that not happen.

Apple will more likely hold AirTags back until an iPhone announcement, something that won’t happen until next month. Instead, tomorrow’s media event looks set to be all about Apple Watches and iPads instead.
