Tile’s Upcoming New Ultra-Wideband Tracker to Rival Apple’s AirTags


Amid growing reports of Apple’s long-awaited AirTags item tracker releasing later this year, Tile is gearing up to introduce a new and improved tracker this year that will leverage ultra-wideband (UWB) technology to locate the missing items, TechCrunch is reporting.




Rumoured lost-item trackers releasing in 2021 from the likes of Apple and Samsung are also expected to take advantage of UWB, which is a short-range, wireless communication protocol similar to Bluetooth and WiFi but operates at very high frequencies. It can be used to capture spatial and directional data.


According to the source, Tile’s upcoming new tracker will also use augmented reality (AR) to help guide users to the lost item’s location via the Tile mobile app. 

Based on Tile’s internal concept art for the device (shown above), Tile’s UWB model will look similar to its other small trackers, like the Tile Mate and Tile Pro. It will also have a square shape, center button and flat back to support being mounted using an adhesive. And like other Tile dongles, it can be attached to a keychain.

Tile is expected to release the new tracker later this year with support for both iOS and Android devices. Pricing for the upcoming ultra-wideband Tile tracker is not known at this time.
