Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Macrumors.com: “Third-Party AirTags Accessories Continuing to Surface Ahead of Apple Event on April 20”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Back in January, we saw a few promotional images for third-party AirTags accessories from both Nomad and Spigen's Cyrill brand, and while Apple's item trackers have yet to launch, we're now seeing more signs of similar accessories starting to show up in the wild.

An increasing number of sellers on eBay, Walmart, Etsy, and other online marketplaces are now offering ‌AirTags‌ holders for sale as details on the device continue to spread.

MacRumors has also received a pair of images of one particularly interesting set of straps that our source says are made of a similar material as the fluoroelastomer Apple uses for its Apple Watch Sport Bands. The band design appears to have a snap closure to secure the AirTag and a short leash with an opening at the opposite end to allow the strap to be secured to an object to be tracked.

An image of a very similar but not identical design has been shared on Weibo today by leaker UnclePan (via DuanRui). This design appears to rely on the elasticity of the strap rather than a snap to hold the AirTag in place.

The increasing number of third-party ‌AirTags‌ accessories comes just ahead of Apple's "Spring Loaded" event tomorrow, although it's still unknown whether the accessory will make an appearance at the event. The first hints of ‌AirTags‌ surfaced in leaked code two years ago, and they've yet to be officially unveiled, but information on them is clearly circulating among accessory manufacturers.
