SAN FRANCISCO: Apple has been rumored to be launching a tile-like item tracker "AirTag" for months. Now, another report claims that the tag will likely feature a removable CR2032 coin cell battery just like the Tile Pro.

Based on a model of the tag, removing and replacing the battery would require unscrewing the rear cover and performing a counterclockwise twisting motion. Besides, Mac Rumors reported on Monday that the new battery must be inserted with the sign facing up.

As per the report, this given information is predicated on a prototype of the AirTag, therefore the final plans could vary.

Apple's "AirTag" item tracker is additionally expected to be completely waterproof and uses similar magnetic wireless charging thereto seen on the Apple Watch.

Evidence of AirTags has been found in builds of iOS 13 and it appears the tiny item trackers will show up within the Find My app and enable users to locate misplaced items.

AirTags were expected to launch last year because iPhone 11 had launched with ultra-wideband support.

Recently, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed that Universal Scientific Industrial, Shanghai-based manufacturing company will begin supplying the system-in-package for the company's upcoming Ultra Wideband item tracking tags within the second to 3rd quarter of 2020.
