AirTag 2: Everything We Know So Far

Apple introduced AirTags in 2021, and over the last two years, the item tracker has been growing in popularity. Rumors suggest that Apple has a new version of the AirTag in the works, and while we don't know a lot just yet, a new model is said to be coming in 2025.

AirTag 2 Mock Feature
This guide highlights everything that we know about the ‌AirTag‌ 2 so far, and we'll be added to it as new rumors surface.


There are no rumors of an ‌AirTag‌ redesign at this point, and Apple will likely keep the same general shape. There have been complaints about how easy it is to access the battery, which some worry could be a danger to children, so Apple could potentially change the way the ‌AirTag‌ opens.

The ‌AirTag‌ has a replaceable CR2032 battery, and there are no signs that Apple wants to transition to a rechargeable battery.

Vision Pro Integration

According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the ‌AirTag‌ will integrate with the Vision Pro headset as part of a spatial computing ecosystem, but he did not provide specifics on just what that means.

It's possible the Ultra Wideband chip in the AirTags could be used for relaying positional information to the Vision Pro in some capacity, or there could be some kind of VR item tracking interface.

Upgraded Ultra Wideband Chip

Apple is rumored to added a second-generation Ultra Wideband chip to the iPhone 15 models, so a future ‌AirTag‌ will likely feature the same upgraded chip. The U2 chip provides introduce better location accuracy and improved efficiency for less power draw.

Launch Date

Mass production on a second-generation ‌AirTag‌ is rumored to be starting in 2025, which means a new version of the ‌AirTag‌ will not come out until sometime in 2025.

It would be nice to get wireless charging for AirPods 2 so we don't have to buy an external CR2032 battery from Amazon or a local store.
You must have a knock-off if you are putting CR2032s in your AirPods. ;)

It would be even cooler if you could charge it with the Apple Watch puck

Did someone have article quota to complete for the day? Lol

It was a short article, so it didn’t take long to read. But you could have made it even shorter this way:
