According to Front Page Tech host Jon Prosser broke the news, Apple’s tracker “AirTags” is expected to be launched in March, and Apple will also launch a new iPad Pro.
According to previous rumors, AirTags is a tracker with a circular disc design and the size of a coin. It can be installed on backpacks, wallets, keys and other items, and lost items can be tracked through iPhone. According to previous sharing by foreign media users, the supporting function page has appeared on iPhone, iPad, and Mac devices. According to the test, the latest iOS/iPadOS 14.3 version of iPhone or iPad and the Safari browser of Mac MacOS 11.1 and above can enable the tracking function.
There are many similar products on the market, but most of them are connected to the mobile phone via Bluetooth. Once the effective range of Bluetooth is exceeded, the user will be notified on the mobile phone. According to previous revelations, AirTags differs from similar products in that the built-in Apple self-developed chip U1 can reduce the positioning accuracy to about 10 cm using UWB technology. Since the iPhone 11 series and AR technology support ultra-wideband, AirTags can theoretically provide high precision, direct users to find an item, and may even be able to accurately locate in the room.
The upcoming iPad Pro will support 5G networks and be equipped with A14 series chips. Previous news revealed that the new generation of iPad Pro may use a mini LED screen, the 12.9-inch model is about 0.5 mm thicker than the current model, and the 11-inch model will maintain the same thickness as the current model.
