Presumably, the last Apple event of 2020 is just hours away and as a last-minute addition, an alleged image of an AirTag pouch has surfaced online. Apple leaker @Fudge shared a picture of a leather pouch keychain to hold the small electronic tags with objects.
Since March, reports of the expected AirTags design and launch date have been circulating in the industry. The electronic tags were on the list of new Apple products in 2020 shared by @L0vetodream and since then, tech analysts have claimed that the company will launch AirTags before every online event this year. Again recent reports have put AirTags on the list of expected launches at the November 10, “One more thing’ event.

As per the reports, the AirTags are My designed to attach to object which owners easily and often forget or misplace like keychains, bags, laptops and even cars in big parking lots. Placed inside or attached on the surface of an object, users will be able to find it via the Find My app on iPhone, iPod, iPad, and Mac.
Previously, an Apple leaker with a mixed track record @Jon Prosser shared the alleged circular design of the company’s electronic tags but it was unclear at the time that how would those tags work; would they be placed in pockets, magnetically attach to objects, or be carried separately.
Now, the uploaded imaged of the potential AirTag keychain by Fudge @choco_bit on Twitter brings little clarity to how the small electronic discs might be carried. The shared product has a leather pouch in saddle brown color attached to a metal ring. Its design is exactly the same as the drawings in a previously discovered Apple patent and the alleged keychain is in the color option as the current MagSafe iPhone 12 cases and wallets.

Looks a lot like this previously reported patent, but take it with a bit of salt though since something similar is easily reproducible in China. pic.twitter.com/HHRi2p4Cyu

However, the leaker advised the readers to take this news with a grain of salt because images discovered in published patents are easy to replicate in China. Therefore, the authenticity of the leaked product is questionable. Having said that, at the moment, the majority of the tech publishers are claiming that Apple will likely launch AirTags at the November Mac event. We just have to wait a few more hours to know for sure.
