With the commercial success of AirTags, Apple will be able to offer a new version

AirTags were a successful launch by Apple. THE network search (Find My) has brought a new reality to finding lost or stolen items, as well as enhanced by the functionality of iPhones to find them even when turned off. Everything has contributed to this network becoming global, with the use of millions of people and this has increased the interest in AirTags.

With this scenario, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that Apple may be preparing the launch of the second generation of this device.

On April 20, 2021, during the event spring line, Apple introduced AirTags. After a few days the device was available for sale and since then it has become a success story. Even if not always for the best reasons, the world has spoken in its location capabilities and in everything it can do for the security of user assets.

In a Twitter post on Sunday, TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the accessory's popularity is still on the rise. It is very precise and above all economical, compared to others of the same level of precision.

AirTags: Gradually became a very popular tracking accessory

AirTags "have gradually increased in sales since their launch," writes the analyst. Sales estimates would have reached 20 million units sold of this locator in 2021while in 2022, it is estimated to reach 35 million.

Kuo points out that the AirTag "hasn't received much attention," referring to how Apple released the locator and configured connected systems, but hasn't made any real changes to the product so far.

If AirTag sales continue to grow, I believe Apple will develop the 2nd generation.

Says the analyst.

What can Apple bring new?

Launching a second-generation model is pretty much a no-brainer when it comes to Apple's product launch policy. The company typically releases a first version to market, refines it with a few fixes and improvements, but then releases a second with new features that users realize are missing.

In addition, the company usually introduces more features that allow the product to gain space against the competition, if it came close.

While not a huge leap in speculation, Kuo's comment is a rare vote of confidence that a new model could be coming soon. Of course, the design can be improved, making the AirTag thinner, it will be able to gain other technologies to interact with more devices and it will be able to refine what it currently offers.
