Before Apple's iPhone event, there were rumors that the company was preparing to launch its own tile-like tracking accessory. It was also rumored that the tracker could use the ultra-broadband technology that makes it easier to find and ping its location.
During the event, however, Apple did not mention the tracker, but it seems that there may still be signs that it is alive. This is because Apple's iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are equipped with a new chipset called "U1". Apple has not dealt with too many details, but this chipset will use ultra-broadband technology.
Apple says nothing about tracking, but notes that it could be used for faster and better file airdropping. According to Apple: "Think of GPS in the size of your living room. So, if you want to share a file with someone using AirDrop, just point your iPhone at the top of the list. "
We're not sure why the company did not say anything about the day, but the look of the U1 chip lets hope the accessory is still alive. Apple may be able to host another event for its new iPad updates in the coming months. Maybe then we will learn more about it.
