  • Apple is currently developing a new version of the AirTag.
  • The new tracker is expected to have a better chip and improved location tracking.
  • Middle of next year is the expected launch window.

Despite being three years old, Apple’s AirTags still come in handy when you need to find something like your keys or wallet. But they could probably use an update by this point, and it looks like the Find My Device rival could get that update in the next year.

In today’s “Power On” newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reported that Apple is in the midst of developing a next-generation AirTag. Codenamed B589, the item locator is reportedly being tested by the tech giant’s manufacturing partners in Asia.
