According to Kuo, Apple is working on AirTags 2

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has been very talkative lately. This time, he tells us about AirTags, Apple’s object tracker. According to him, although the company has not given much information on sales performance since its launch a year ago, shipments have gradually increased, which could lead to a second generation of the AirTags in the coming months. .

Strong sales for AirTags

According to the specialist, AirTags shipment estimates 35 million units in 2022, after crossing the 20 million mark in 2021. Without warning, the AirTag has made a name for itself, which should lead to a version 2 on Apple’s side.

AirTag, which has not received much attention, has seen its shipments gradually increase since its release. AirTag’s shipment estimates reach around 20 and 35 million units in 2021 and 2022, respectively. If AirTag shipments continue to grow, I believe Apple will develop the 2nd generation.

AirTags 2 could arrive next year, again to help users track their keys, devices, bags, and more. We can assume that the American manufacturer will propose a limitation for those who currently have fun harassing people with an AirTag.

Since the initial release of AirTags a year ago, Apple has made several improvements via firmware updates to reduce risk. The Item Tracker now plays faster and louder if it’s away from its original owner, or even alerts someone who might be wearing an AirTag that doesn’t belong to them.

Apple has even launched an Android app to help smartphone users find out who an AirTag is from, and teach them how to deactivate it.

For the second generation of AirTags, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo gives no details on possible improvements. Apple has made a great first product, it could go further on autonomy, miniaturization and therefore especially on the issue of harassment.
