Prosser’s rumours about Apple products is usually true but last year the YouTuber couldn’t predict the launch of the tracker when he said that the AirTags will launch in November 2020. There were also speculations that the AirTags will launch with the release of iOS 14.3 during the company’s developers conference but that didn’t happen either.
