Outside of powering the current version of AirDrop, this is one of the first functions we have actually seen Apple make use of the U1 chip to boost. The element is anticipated to power the company’s long-rumored AirTags, which Apple will reportedly introduce later on this year. You can manually upgrade your HomePod mini to benefit from the new UWB functionality by launching the Home application as well as navigating to the Software application Update area of the Settings menu.
