Jon Prosser (@jon_prosser) has said today on Twitter that the upcoming Apple AirTags are still on track to launch this March alongside a new iPad Pro. Additionally, Prosser confirmed that Apple is planning on launching the iPhone 13/iPhone 12S with Touch ID.
There have been multiple reports over the past few months suggesting that Apple is planning on integrating Touch ID into the iPhone 12S/iPhone 13 – either through having the sensor embedded into the display or by having the Touch ID sensor in the power button similar to the iPad Air.
Prosser confirmed today that the iPhone 12S/iPhone 13 will feature Touch ID, but didn’t elaborate on how Apple will implement the technology into the device.
In addition the the iPhone 13, Prosser also spoke about AirTags. AirTags are Apple’s upcoming bottlecap-sized tracking devices that can be attached to your keychain, bags, etc. The AirTags can be tracked via the ‘Find My’ app on your iPhone.
The first reports of AirTags date back to iOS 13. At one point, an Apple Support video confirmed the name of AirTags accidentally. Despite this, Apple never made an official announcement.
Jon Prosser, who leaked the design of the AirTags last year, has said today that Apple is still planning to launch AirTags in March. According to Prosser, he has not heard of any new delays facing the upcoming product.
Prosser also confirmed that Apple is planning on launching the next generation of iPad Pro in March too. There haven’t been many leaks or rumours regarding the new iPad Pro models, but recently leaked CAD files show less speakers and an overall less wide design.
It’s been rumoured over the last few months that Apple is planning on hosting a virtual event in late March to announce several new products, including AirTags, a new iPad Pro, M1 Macs, and more.
