Here’s How Apple’s Bluetooth Tracker and Apple Glasses Will Work
We recently reported about how Apple is working on a Tile-like Bluetooth tracker device. Apple’s Bluetooth tracker is expected to be grouped under “Items” tab in the Find My app. A fresh report explains in detail about how Apple’s item tracker works and also gives a sneak peek at Apple Glasses project.
As explained earlier, the Find My App will come with an Items tab. Under this menu, you can see and access all the Bluetooth trackers connected to different items. Furthermore, users can simply place the item in lost mode. The system will spring into action when it detects others carrying the device with a lost tag. If the other person has an Apple device, then the system will automatically notify them of the item alongside owners contact information.
The report cites that Apple uses offline tracking feature which leverages nearby Apple devices to send location data to the cloud. As seen earlier, the tags will come in a circular package with an Apple Logo. On the connectivity front, the tracker comes with Bluetooth LE, NFC, own operating system and a speaker that helps with locating. That apart, the tag will automatically pair with iCloud account depending on the proximity of the user. Lastly, the NFC will help finders scan the tag and return the item to the rightful owner.
Thanks to the codes found on iOS 13 we now know that Apple is still working on its Glasses. However, Apple Glass seems to be quiet different from Google Glass. To begin with, Apple Glasses will support face-mounted AR experience and is currently being tested internally with two Apple devices and a third device called Holokit.
Apple Glasses are likely to offer Stereo AR apps in two modes. One is a handheld mode which is akin to normal AR mode. The other is a “worn mode” which needs to be switched on while being used with external devices. Apple is set to launch new devices next week and the super wide-angle rear camera will come in handy for AR tracking.
