Updated and enhanced AirTag expected in 2025

AirTags, already a near-ubiquitous product, will get an update sometime in 2025.

Apple is working on a new version of the popular AirTag item tracker, said to replace the current model at some point in 2025.

Apple's popular AirTag device will get a new version, code-named B589, according to a new report. The updated device is allegedly already undergoing test runs with manufacturing partners in Asia, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman.

The device originally debuted in April 2021, and quickly became a hit product. Details on what will be new in the device are scant, but users can expect to see a more powerful chip with improved location tracking.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also predicted the 2025 arrival of a new AirTag back in October of 2023. He expects the new model to gain compatibility with the Apple Vision Pro.

Gurman said he would like to see a louder speaker, longer battery life, and a version optimized for wallets. Third-party companies also make trackers that are compatible with Apple's Find My network, including some that are intended for wallets.

Although Apple was among the first tracker makers to include anti-stalking features in the original AirTag, it has repeatedly updated and strengthened those features. Other makers have since adopted similar measures in an effort to cut down on the abuse of the devices to intimidate and stalk others.
