A report originating from ChargerLAB in Hong Kong claims that Apple supplier Luxshare Precision has started producing AirPower. The report is based on news from “credible sources” so there’s no way to verify its authenticity. The source does claim that AirPower will now be soon released by Apple.
Apple AirPower Release Date, Price, Specs & News
If you were so inclined to buy a new pair of AirPods and you were in the United States (along with several other countries), you could do that without delay. But that’s apparently not the case for those in Europe.
The AirPower wireless charging mat was expected to be given a launch date and price tag earlier this month, but that didn’t end up happening.
Apple was widely expected to finally release AirPower at its iPhone XS event last week. However, the company did not mention anything about its wireless charger at the event and even went ahead and removed all mentions of AirPower from its website. A report from Sonny Dickson details the reasons as to why Apple has been struggling to release the wireless charger.
It has been a long time since Apple officially announced its wireless charging mat, the AirPower, and despite the long wait, we don’t appear to be any closer to an actual launch date.
We first heard about a wireless charging case for the truly wireless headphones, the AirPods, back in September of last year.
Apple Rumored to Launch AirPower This Fall for $150; 2018 iPhone Lineup Expected to Support Wireless Charging
Apple announced the wireless charging pad, AirPower, late last year, but the accessory has yet to actually launch.
When Apple unveiled the iPhone 8 and iPhone X back in September last year, it also unveiled AirPower — a Qi-based wireless charger with some enhancements from Apple thrown in. AirPower sets itself apart from other wireless chargers in the market with the fact that it could be used to wirelessly charge the iPhone, Apple Watch, and the AirPods simultaneously at the same time.
One of the big new additions to the iPhone lineup was wireless charging support, and, of course, a brand new Apple-official wireless charging mat.
