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.
It wasn’t that long ago the Tile released the revamped Tile Mate and Tile Slim, two distinctly different Bluetooth trackers meant for different purposes. One small and tiny, the other larger, but slim enough to slide into a wallet. Tile is at it again with an all new Pro series of the popular BLE locators.
Battery packs are a hot commodity these days because it seems like our mobile devices never want to last as long as we’d like them to. They bring us out of the dark ages, where we used to have to sit by a power outlet and wait for our handsets to charge, and are advantageous because they allow you to charge on the go, no matter how far away from civilization you might be.
On the other hand, people who are always on the go have a tendency of misplacing things, and sometimes that means losing their battery packs. That’s why Nomad came up with the PowerPack, a trackable battery pack you can keep tabs on with your mobile device, even when you’ve forgotten it somewhere or misplaced it.
