SAN FRANCISCO: Apple has been rumoured to be launching a tile-like item tracker for months, now with the release of iOS 13.2 it is confirmed that the device will be called 'AirTag'.

A folder within the filesystem for the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system possibly confirms the name 'AirTag' for the new device, 9To5Mac reported on Monday.

The folder doesn't have any details on the features, but it looks like the AirTags which will be paired with a user's iPhone just like AirPods and will allow users to track any item using the Find My app.


Additionally, the folder also includes a video asset named 'BatterySwap' which means AirTags will have a replaceable battery.

Also included in iOS 13.2 are three images of new battery cases for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

The case images looks pretty similar to the battery cases for iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

Apple may launch two premium iPhone 11 models this year.

The internal names given to the devices are D42 that would replace iPhone XS, and D43 to replace iPhone XS Max. The experts believe the devices will be called iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max. These devices will support a stylus - Apple Pencil.

The new devices may sport an OLED display that's used in Samsung's Galaxy S10 and Note 10.

The move is likely to assist Samsung Display in a number of ways, including reducing the list of suppliers it uses to acquire materials, and buying more from a smaller supplier pool.

The iPhone 11 series may come with a triple rear camera set-up with all the three sensors placed at the back.

The premium iPhones are expected to get bigger and better batteries, equipped with reverse wireless charging. They might also feature a lightning port for audio and charging.

The new models may feature Apple's A13 chip, and sport a new Taptic Engine.

The upcoming phones is tipped to be available for pre-order on September 13 and in-store availability is set to start on September 20.
