Kuo: AirTags And More Coming In 2021, Including An AR Device
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has again been reporting on Apple’s plans for 2021, according to MacRumors. A research note spotted by the outlet has Apple set to release AirTags as well as an unspecified augmented reality device at some point in the next twelve months.
The launch of AirTags in particular is one that seems long overdue, if only because we’ve been hearing about their existence for more than a year at this point.
The trackers will allow users to locate anything from car keys to bags, similar to how Tile trackers work already.
As for the AR device, Kuo is again building on information that has been circulating for a long time now, with an AR headset having been rumored for months. Kup doesn’t go into detail about what the AR device could be, however.
Kuo also notes that new AirPods, more Apple Silicon Macs, and devices using mini-LED screens will debut this year, all things we’re already expecting to some extent. Of all Kuo’s reporting here, it’s the AR headset that is the least likely to come to fruition.
Apple Silicon Macs are a given at this point and the AirPods Pro earbuds are arguably overdue a refresh. Rumors of an AirPods Pro-like redesign are abound already, too.
