Apple Tile-rival tracker features detailed in leaked iOS 13 build

Apple is developing a smart tracking tag, report says

Apple's latest in-house beta test has been checking out things in iOS 13, and new documentation from the tests appears to include several references to augmented reality apps and even some type of augmented reality glasses.

Apple has always been rumored to be working on some form of augmented reality headset however, recent reports suggested that Apple's AR Glasses project had been scrapped.

The image (below) shows a circular tag with a white or light silver background and darker centered Apple logo; it mirrors one published in early June by 9to5Mac, though it's still yet to be seen whether this is a placeholder image or an accurate depiction of the actual accessory. The tags will also be closely integrated with the new Find My app in iOS 13.

If the item is lost, the tag may be placed in Lost Mode. According to MacRumors, the iOS 13 operating system (for iPhones and iPads) contains pretty strong evidence that some form of AR hardware is in development.

First, users should launch the app on a secondary Apple device.

How Hurricane Dorian is impacting travelers
Most people went to shelters as the storm approached, with tourist hotels shutting down and residents boarded up their homes. The storm's path has been tricky to predict , as an "atmospheric steering wheel" that was nudging Dorian northward weakened.

MacRumours also suggests that there will be an AR side to the new product, and that other iPhone users can help report lost items to their correct owner if they find them. The notification, however, will not appear if the item is left in predetermined Safe Locations. The Items tab is reportedly listed next to "People" and "Devices" tabs in the app, enabling users to get alerts when they move too far away from the item tagged with their Apple tracking accessory. The tag itself might have an option to locate the phone. It uses another Apple device to detect the missing iPhone's Bluetooth signal, then reports the approximate location of the device to the owner of the missing iPhone.

As of now, there is no information when this feature will arrive with on iOS 13.

The tag will be able to notify users when it goes out-of-range from their iPhone or Apple Watch. They can message and call them to inform that their goods have been found by someone.

Apple, as per MacRumors, said the feature doesn't have any marked impact on the device's battery life and data usage.
