AirTag 2 to Launch


Apple launched its AirTag item tracker in April 2021, and since then, there have been rumors about a second-generation model. Analysts Ming-Chi Kuo and Mark Gurman suggest a potential release in 2025, with Kuo mentioning a production delay in 2023. Kuo speculates on integration with Apple’s Vision Pro headset, while Gurman anticipates an upgraded wireless chip, possibly the second-gen Ultra Wideband chip for improved tracking accuracy. No design or price changes have been rumored yet.

HomePod Mini in Malaysia


Apple has gained approval to sell the HomePod mini in Malaysia, as revealed in a local regulatory filing. The specific availability date is unclear, but sales are expected to commence on Apple’s online store in the coming months. Approval for the full-size second-generation HomePod in Malaysia is still pending. The HomePod mini, introduced in October 2020 in the U.S., is now available in approximately 25 countries. New color options were introduced in November 2021, and the temperature and humidity sensor was activated last year.
