Based on earlier rumours and leaks, the AirTags will resemble a round disc the size of a white bottle cap and feature a metal back. They will allow users to keep track of their personal belongings, such as their keys, wallets, and more.

In addition to the AirTags, Kuo expects Apple to unveil the long-rumoured augmented reality device this year, which may be a pair of smart glasses, a headset, or both. 

“Kuo also said that Apple plans to release new AirPods, more Apple Silicon Macs, and its first devices with Mini-LED displays throughout the year. Previous rumors have pointed towards a new 12.9-inch iPad Pro and various MacBook models with Mini-LED displays launching in 2021, offering richer colors, improved contrast, and more.”

The analyst has previously claimed that Apple will release redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with Apple Silicon and Mini-LED displays in 2021.
