Kuo: AirTag 2 delayed until 2025

By Julie Clover

Apple won't release a second-generation version of the AirTag until 2025, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Mass production of the accessory has reportedly been delayed until 2025, pushing back Apple's planned launch timeline. Back in August, Kuo said mass production would begin in the fourth quarter of 2024, suggesting a launch in late 2024 or early 2025.

According to Kuo, AirTag 2 will be part of the new spatial computing ecosystem that Apple is creating, and Vision Pro will serve as the core for integrating other devices. Kuo has previously said that he believes AirTag will be integrated with the Vision Pro headset, but he still hasn't given much insight into what that means.

There is a possibility that the ultra-wideband chip in the AirTag could be used to transmit location information to the Vision Pro to some extent, but it is not yet known how Apple will use the AirTag with the Vision Pro. .

We haven't heard much about the second-generation AirTag at this point, and there's no word on what design changes, form factor updates, or feature additions Apple might make.

The new AirTag will likely include Apple's second-generation Ultra Wideband chip, which debuted in the iPhone 15 models, allowing for even more accurate indoor motion tracking.
