In today's world, it's not a big surprise when we hear that some companies are selling off data related to their users. It happens all the time, and many companies have made a killing from it. It's big business. Unfortunately, some companies you just hope it doesn't turn out to be that way. Like one that's designed around a "family safety platform."
Ever since the rumor mill started talking about AirTags, Apple's now official item finder, Tile has raised concerns over Apple's business practices. And sure enough, now that Apple's made the AirTag the real deal, Tile is raising concerns yet again.
Word on the street is that Apple is finally going to launch AirTags some time in 2021. The Tile-like tracking device is said to boast quite a few features, but it sounds like Tile itself may beat Apple to the punch this year.
Remember AirTags? The oft-rumored Apple-branded Tile-like tracking device that was originally expected to launch sometime in 2020? That didn't happen, so now all eyes are turned to 2021 as the release year.
It took a bit longer than previously expected, but Epic Games has found its coalition of like-minded companies to "fight back" against Apple.
Tile's tracking devices are meant to help you find things. But sometimes bad things happen and we lose those things. The company's new subscription service is designed to help with those moments.
Apple has a way of skirting around admitting it's done anything "wrong", simply by ignoring or denying pointed accusations until it can basically fix the problem with its own implementation of a new feature or something similar.
Tile has complaints against Apple, and it has made them known in the United States. Now it's doing the same thing in Europe.
Apple is not a stranger to claims of anticompetitive behavior, and according to Tile things have not gotten better with Apple in recent months.
There's no way to argue that Apple does not have a firm hold on its ecosystem, and that it prefers its own apps and software over the majority of third-party options out there.
Apple's upcoming iPhones and Tile-like device will feature ultra-wideband (UWB) technology, according to a new research note from Ming-Chi Kuo obtained by MacRumors. The short-range radio tech uses little power and offers more precise indoor positioning than Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
Apple is making some major changes to the Find My app and location service in iOS 13. That will more than likely include a Tile-like tracking device.
