With the Apple Event premiering tomorrow, September 15, 2020, at 10:00 AM PDT, more conflicting predictions are arising.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman confirmed Apple's plans to share the Apple Watch Series 6 and new iPad Air model but didn't mention AirTags, HomePod mini, nor AirPods Studio.

However, well-known Apple leaker and tech analyst Jon Prosser say otherwise about the AirTags launch.

Prosser shares a 3D render mock-up design of what the AirTags could look like based on his sources. The "white front (no logo)" and "polished metal back with the Apple logo" appears to fit with Apple's overall aesthetic across all its products.

The simple appearance will match users' other Apple products. Assuming Apple will sport the white front, it will be easy to spot with your eyes when using the AirTags Bluetooth tracking feature to find your items.

Similar to the popular item-tracking company, Tile, the AirTags are expected to be compatible with the Find My app on iPhones to help users find their belongings.

Prosser shared in another tweet that U1 chips and UWB could be used in "all future Apple products."

The tweet explains that "the Apple-designed U1 chip, assembled in USI, is such a game-changer... [while the] UWB (Ultra Wideband) is something coming to all future Apple products."

The U1 chip and UWB feature give future Apple products a broader bandwidth to detect other devices within a specific proximity.

The chip upgrade will be especially useful when using the AirTags to locate users' belongings sooner and, hopefully, with a greater distance placed between the user and his or her lost items.

While the U1 chip is impressive, it is currently used in the iPhone 11 series. The only feature that iPhone 11 users can benefit from is the AirDrop option to transfer files wirelessly to users' Macs.

Until these details are confirmed, we are all looking forward to the virtual event tomorrow that can be streamed on YouTube.

Don't miss the Apple Event tomorrow, September 15, 2020, at 10:00 AM PDT, by setting the reminder to 'on.'
