Apple is expected to finally launch its long-rumoured AirTags this year, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Apple also has a bunch of other products than iPhones and Macs in store for 2021.

AirTags have been rumoured for a long time now with its launch expected last year. It looks like Apple will finally take the wraps off the AirTags this year. The latest update comes from Kuo's new research note shared by MacRumors. Based on the leaks and rumours accumulated so far, Apple AirTags are smart trackers that can be used to keep a track on things like keys and wallets. Leaked images also revealed a circular design for the AirTags.

Apple AirTags are rumoured to cost $49 ( 3,600 approx) per unit. Apple will reportedly sell the AirTags separately for $20 which brings the total cost to around 5,000. There have been hints of AirTags in beta versions of iOS 14 suggesting the launch isn't very far. It will be a first of its kind product for Apple after the launch of the AirPods Max headphones.

Kuo also predicted the launch of an augmented reality device for 2021. While he didn't specify what device it will be, there have been rumours of Apple's first AR glasses and a headset as well. It still seems too early for such a product from Apple so it could be something different too.

More Apple products lined up for 2021 include a new pair of AirPods, silicon Macs, and the first mini-LED devices. These product launches will be spread throughout the year.
