While it may seem promising at first, a new listing for an Apple "AirTags" accessory may only be adding to the ongoing confusion surrounding the long-rumored tracking device.

A listing on mobile accessory maker Cyrill's website shows what they're calling the Apple AirTag Strap -- a small keyring-style case designed to hold the rumored Apple "AirTags."

The listing allows customers to preorder the Apple AirTag Strap for $20, with a late October ship date. However, under the features subheading, it states that the case is for the "Apple AirTag (2020)," suggesting that the retailer may have anticipated the device to release in October of 2020. The Cyrill Apple AirTag Strap listing had been spotted by iMore.

It was also recently reported that Nomad has been developing accessories for Apple "AirTags," with leaked images of both a keychain and a glasses strap that are designed to hold "AirTags." On Monday, Spigen -- Cyrill's sister brand -- also appeared to accidentally post an Amazon listing for an "AirTags" accessory.

"AirTags" is Apple's rumored upcoming tracker device, designed to let users track everyday items, such as bags, bicycles, and glasses with Apple's Find My feature. Though most rumors indicate that they'll use Ultra-Wideband and augmented reality for item locating, their price, release date, and final design are still unclear.

    LOL. The best example of vaporware ever.

    You can pre-order an accessory that doesn't exist yet for a product that doesn't exist yet.

    Seems like a great mock-up/placeholder. AirTags or whatever they end being called will be a real hit.

    Wait! From the listing: "Ships in late October". Haha. Yeah, just a hopeful mock-up.

    Looks like they took the page down as it says 404 not found.
