According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple has significantly increased its AirTag shipments, which are expected to reach about 20 million devices in 2021, followed by 35 million units in 2022. According to the expert, the current trend may prompt Apple to release a second-generation AirTag shortly.
Apple introduced AirTags as a tool to track products, but recent reports imply that the business has gradually increased AirTag sales since its introduction, according to a tweet by a TFI International Securities analyst.
AirTags, for example, use a wireless connection to alert users when they leave their present position. Because the devices are the size of a large coin, they may be placed anywhere. Apple released AirTag in April 2021, a device that allows customers to monitor misplaced personal goods using their iPhone.
According to Kuo, Apple AirTag has recently gotten a lot of attention. However, the increased growth may persuade the tech titan to release a new iteration of the device.
While it's tough to see how the original AirTag might be improved, Apple constantly upgrades all of its other hardware products, so it'd be uncommon if the AirTag were left out. Apple wasn't the first company to create a tiny monitoring gadget, but it did so by improving on what was already available.
The AirTag is appealing in terms of both appearance and usability. Apple's products are meant to work seamlessly together, and the AirTag is no exception. It's all quite straightforward, from linking it to one's phone to locating it if it becomes forgotten.
However, Apple may be upset to learn that AirTags are being used to snoop on people against their permission. To make this form of misuse more difficult, the business swiftly built anti-stalking capabilities.
AirTag sales haven't exploded yet, according to Kuo, but they're picking up steam as iPhone purchasers find AirTags helpful and simple to set up and use.
