YouTube and Apple leaker, Jon Prosser is back again with another launch date for alleged AirTags and new iPad Pro models. In separate Tweets, Prosser claims that Apple is set to launch the aforementioned products as early as next month via a virtual event.
Allegedly, Apple AirTags are electronic Bluetooth trackers like Tile Bluetooth trackers. The tags are designed to attach to various objects and surfaces, so users can track them via their Find My app on the iPhone. Tags are ideal to attach with easily misplace items like keys, wallet, and even cars in a busy parking lot.
AirTags are still on for March.
Haven’t heard of any further delays this time. 🤞

New iPad Pro models and AirTags are coming in March
Although it isn’t the first time Prosser has given a launch date of AirTags, reports of third-party accessory manufacturers updating their product line-up with AirTags keychains and a hidden access code give some weight to Prosser’s claim. Recently, Nomad and CYRILL have included their accessories with leather holders for the Apple Bluetooth tracker.
In addition, Twitter user @davidvanchu discovered a method to access the hidden Items tab in Find My app on iPhone, which is expected to work with AirTags and other location trackers.
If you go into Safari on iOS 14.3 and later, and enter findmy://items, you will be taken to the hidden Items tab in Find My app. This is the same user interface that has been shown in many iOS betas previously, but it has never been accessible in a stable iOS build like this before.
In another Tweet, @Prosser gave March launch month of the new iPad Pro without mentioning any other design details. Several sources have also claimed that only after a year, Apple will upgrade the iPad Pro lineup in 2021 but did not mention a precise month.
Shared images of 11-inch iPad Pro factory CAD by Tech blogs 91mobile and MySmartPrice reveal design changes like the reduction of a few millimeters from the length and width of the device. DigiTimes claims that next-generation iPad Pro will have a mini LED display, and 5G mmWave network technology.
