AirTag 2 expected for 2025 release: 5 features I hope Apple adds

Apple AirTag 2

The long-anticipated AirTag 2 is expected to launch in 2025. Since it was unveiled during the pandemic in April 2021, this item tracker has gained more value over time, as people have been using it to locate their luggage on trips, backpacks, wallets, and so on.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, in his Power On newsletter, reported that the new item tracker is expected to have a new chip with better precision technology. That said, I hope Apple adds these five features to AirTag 2.

New ultrawideband chip: Apple currently uses the U1 chip for the AirTag. For years, the company built its ecosystem with this processor, but in 2023, Apple upgraded it with a second-generation chip. It currently powers all iPhone 15 models, Apple Watch Series 9, and Apple Watch Ultra 2. It can connect with objects three times further away.

Better Precision Find: I hope the new AirTag 2 is easier to find with this better chip. I also hope it unlocks new perks for those with an iPhone 15 and newer. For example, the Apple Watch Series 9 can locate the iPhone; I wonder how this new AirTag could improve Precision Find.

Redesign: I'm OK with Apple's AirTag design. However, I hope Apple adds a loophole or something easier to attach to this item tracker. Currently, users need to buy an accessory to hold this accessory, and it's quite annoying, especially because Apple charges almost the same for the AirTag as it does for the keychain.

A new option: The lack of design options might make users opt for a third-party item tracker instead of Apple's option. For example, fitting the current AirTag into a wallet isn't ideal. A slimmer model could help boost sales.

Louder sound: AirTag 2 should be louder when we tap the ring button. This could help us find the item tracker more quickly.
