Apple announced the AirPower in 2017, but it never made it to the market due to technical problems. The AirPower was designed to be a flat charging station that could charge simultaneously an iPhone, AirPods, and the Apple Watch. Apple eventually canceled the project, but rumors suggested that work on a multi-device charger has continued.
The AirPower charging mat was announced in 2017 but experienced delay exceeding a year. This has become a flash-point in Apple’s tendency to announce products that excited the public but are not delivered on time. The AirPods earlier experienced similar delays but eventually gained momentum and became highly popular.
Rumors regarding the delay of AirPower mostly revolve around difficult technical issues related to the laws of physics, which made them too hot because the 3D charging coils in close proximity to each other required careful power management. It has become a focal point of the discussion that something is wrong with Apple’s hardware processes.
What is AirPower?
AirPower is a multi-device wireless charging mat that was designed to charge three devices at once: an iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch.
Why was AirPower never released?
AirPower was canceled due to technical issues surrounding the laws of physics. Specifically, the 3D charging coils in close proximity to each other required very careful power management.
Is Apple still working on a wireless charging mat?
Rumors suggest that Apple is still working on a wireless charging mat, but there has been no official confirmation from Apple.
The AirPower is still a talked-about topic, and many people hope that Apple will eventually release a wireless charging mat. However, until there is an official statement from Apple about it, we can only speculate about its release date or whether it will ever be released at all.
