Apple may finally launch device it had cancelled in 2019
Apple’s AirPower- a wireless charging mat- which never saw the light of day, may finally debut this year.
Apple is expected to launch a new series of iPhone 13, a new iPad Mini and much more this year. The Cupertino giant could also launch a product that was canceled in 2019. Apple's AirPower - a wireless charging machine - that has never seen the light of day, could finally start this year. The product was first announced in 2017 during the launch event. However, due to roadblocks in technology, Apple has decided to curb the idea of launching the product in 2019.
“After much effort, we have concluded that AirPower will not achieve our highest standards, and we have suspended operations. We apologize to those customers who were looking forward to this launch. We continue to believe that the future is wireless and we are committed to advancing wireless knowledge, ”said Apple VP of Hardware Engineering Dan Riccio two years ago. However, speculation is rife that Apple may eventually launch AirPower as well as a new series of iPhone 13 and other devices scheduled for launch in September this year.
A Bloomberg report recently revealed that Apple is working on a device like AirPower, which it discarded years ago. Sources close to the company said a charging mat reportedly Apple was working would add to the iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods. You just need to place your device on the charger and it will charge off the phone. IPhones include iPhone X, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, iPhone XS, XS Max, XR, iPhone 11 series, iPhone SE (2020) and series The iPhone 12 will be compatible with the charging mat.
While some charging mats are limited to phones only, AirPower will also charge the Apple Watch and AirPods 2. Users can also charge two devices at a time on the mat at the same time. It will depend on the size of the charging mat.
AirPower, announced in 2017, faced many problems with charging coils.It was reported that Apple blogger John Gruber in 2018 said that "building too many coils is too hot - too hot". Apple was later reported to be working on heat issues. Shortly after that the device was canceled in 2020.
Well-known tipster Jon Prosser had said last year that Apple had not abandoned the idea of a charging mat. He had said the project was still ongoing. So if all reports are true, you may see a charging mat this year.
