Older reports have hinted that the AirTags will be circular disk-like devices that will allow users to keep a track of their items such as vehicle keys and wallets.

Apple today accidentally dropped a significant hint at its rumored AirTag location trackers. According to eagle-eyed folks at Appleosophy, the Cupertino tech giant made a mistake and revealed the existence of its unreleased Tile-like trackers called AirTags.

Given that the video that the AirTags toggle was shown in has since been taken down, it's probably safe to assume that Apple's hoping to keep a lid on this product before it's able to tout the technology on its own terms.

Apple Snaps Up AI Startup to Smarten Siri
Apple has purchased artificial intelligence startup Voysis with the aim of improving Siri , reports Bloomberg . E-commerce companies used Voysis' technology to offer enhanced product search results through their apps.

References to the new AirTags were discovered in an Apple support video that was uploaded to their YouTube channel yesterday, this can be seen in the photo below. At around the 1:43 mark, it instructs users to turn off "Find my iPhone" as a part of the process. On the Settings page that appears, another option for "Enable offline search" is displayed, and below that, the text refers to AirTags by name. "Offline finding enables this device and AirTags to be found when not connected to Wi-Fi or cellular", as per the screenshot, shared by Appleosophy.

Apple did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment. That sounds a lot like Tile, which sells small tracking accessories in various sizes that can be used to track down easily lost items through an app on your phone.

USA technology giant Apple, which is expected to introduce the new 4.7 inch iPhone SE 2 / iPhone 9 in the coming days, may come up with another very surprising product. TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who is known for his often-accurate Apple predictions, also listed AirTags as one of the products he expects the company to launch in the first half of 2020 . The company has reportedly deferred the launch of its new iPhone by months due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Here's everything that was wrong with the $159 pair of the wireless headphones.
