APPLE'S rumoured tracking devices, currently referred to as Apple Tags or AirTags, may launch sooner rather than later.
This is according to some experts who are now suspecting that Apple will launch the tech towards the end of March.
Plans for AirTags were spotted within iOS 13 software.
The highly anticipated tracking devices are intended to be attached to items like keys and wallets so you can track them with an app if you ever lose them.
According to Japan-based website Mac Otakara, the trackers will feature magnetic wireless charging tech.
The website speculates that the trackers will also be "completely waterproof".
Mac Otakara is said to have deep connections within the Asian supply chain.
Its rumours and predictions are largely accurate so it is considered as a strong source when it comes to Apple insider information.
The existence of AirTags has been rumoured for over a year now.
We don't yet know when they'll launch or how much they'll cost.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted they will large in the first half of this year.
However, other experts think Apple is more likely to launch them alongside the next iPhone towards the end of 2020.
