Apple AirPower: Wireless charging mat may finally launch this year

Postado Janeiro 14, 2019

The advanced charging pad was supposed to launch previous year, but the complexity of the device halted the production and we really hope that Apple finally breaks the silence in the following days or weeks with an official announcement.

When Apple introduced the iPhone X in 2017, the Cupertino company had also announced the AirPower, a wireless charging mat which allows you to charge your iPhone, your Watch and even your AirPods at the same time. A tweet from HongKong-based website ChargerLab (via MacRumors) claims that the long-delayed AirPower is already in production. This promised accessory can charge an iPhone, Apple Watch and an upcoming AirPods case simultaneously. Luxshare is a member of Wireless Power Consortium, the force behind the promotion of its Qi standard. It is believed that Pegatron will ramp up production of the charging pad later this month.

The Verge reported that in June 2018 Apple was rumoured to be having problems with the charging mat, including overheating when it charged three devices at once.

"AirPower is finally coming", the tweet reads.

ChargeLab's sources say that the AirPower is being made by Luxshare Precision, the same company that handles manufacturing duties for the AirPods and various USB-C cables on behalf of Apple.
