‘AirTag 2 won’t arrive until 2025’ – here’s why

Bad news if you’re still waiting for the second generation AirTag, because the AirTag 2 probably won’t arrive until 2025. Here’s why.

Apple is working on a new AirTag

It has been a while since Apple released the AirTag, the tracker was released in 2021. With the small device it is much easier to find your keys, suitcase, bicycle or even car. You can always see the location of the AirTag in the ‘Find My’ app, so you never have to really look for your stuff again. However, it has now been three years since the AirTag appeared, so it is time for a successor.

The AirTag 2 will reportedly have a new U-chip, which will display its location even more accurately. In addition, the next generation of the tracker will probably have a rechargeable battery instead of a battery. Unfortunately, according to the usually reliable Apple analyst Mark Gurman, we will have to wait a while for the AirTag 2, because according to him it will not arrive until 2025.

So we don’t have to expect a new AirTag again this year. There are several reasons for this, according to Gurman. Apple currently has little competition in the field of trackers that work with ‘Find My’. This is increasingly changing, and both Kruidvat and Action have already released a cheaper alternative with support for the app.

According to Mark Gurman, the fact that Apple is not in a hurry to release the AirTag 2 is mainly due to the stock of the first generation AirTag. Apple has reportedly produced a huge quantity of the AirTag, leaving a large stock of the tracker in department stores. Apple wants to sell this first before the second generation is released.
