There are lots of rumours right now suggesting that Apple will soon unveil the AirTag - a tracking device that you can attach to various products and later locate them using the Find My app. Now a Twitter post shows operating instructions and more design details.
A Twitter post from @caleblin_apple has revealed what they claim are pictures of the operating instructions for the long-rumoured Apple AirTags. Along with the AirTags is an image of the AirPower charging mat, despite Apple’s claims that they are no longer developing the product.
Here is a guide on charging AirTagls supposedly sent by Apple for print tests before mass production. AirPower is back? This is different to leaks saying a swappable coin battery would be used 🤔— Leaks (@caleblin_apple) September 5, 2020

The pictures show an AirTag, an AirPower charging mat and, apparently, an Apple Watch charger, suggesting that rather than the AirTag using a coin battery, it will be wirelessly chargeable.
Previously rumours had suggested that the AirTag would have a removable battery that would be accessible to the user through a flap on the underside of the AirTag, similar to the earlier Apple TV remotes. If these leaks are accurate, it suggests that Apple is installing a rechargeable battery in the AirTags.
Another illustration shows how the AirTag can be attached to a keyring, however, the poster suggests it’s just a placeholder because the text doesn’t seem to match up with the image.
Here is a diagram from the quick start showing how to attach AirTag to a keychain. Apologies for the blur.— Leaks (@caleblin_apple) September 5, 2020
According to the source the accompanying text says to use the "rubber loop", suggesting that this diagram is possibly a placeholder (or a loop just wasn't shown) pic.twitter.com/ci6zhxpCcG
