Strong AirTag sales indicate Apple could be working on 2nd-gen Bluetooth tracker

Apple might be working on a 2nd-gen AirTag, according to often-reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Kuo says that AirTag shipments have grown “gradually” over the past year, which could result in Apple releasing a new version of the Bluetooth tracker.

On Twitter (seen above), Kuo said that AirTag shipments have hit 20 million and 35 million in 2021 and 2022, respectively.

Apple’s AirTag is designed to help users track their keys, backpacks, luggage and pretty much anything they’re attached to, which has also led to nefarious use cases. Since the tracking devices’ release, Apple has released several updates to the AirTag that aim to fix these issues, including notifying people if they’re carrying an AirTag that doesn’t belong to them. Apple also launched an Android app to identify lost AirTags.

It’s unclear what additional features a next-gen AirTag might offer, but the device’s anti-stalking features will likely be expanded alongside other functionality like a louder built-in speaker, better range and improved battery life.
