Apple AirPower Wireless Charger Misses 2018 Release Window


Apple’s wireless charger, AirPower, which was supposed to let iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods owners wirelessly charge all three gadgets at the exact same time, missed its release window in 2018, yet once again.

Apple had announced a product at its September 2017 iPhone event called “AirPower”. Apple had actually stated it would introduce in 2018, but it never ever did. It’s a rare miss for Apple, which typically has a great track record of following through on product announcements, CNBC reported late on Monday.

The AirPower is rumored to have actually faced internal development obstacles due to which the Cupertino-based giant could not bring the item to market as smoothly as anticipated.

“During each of its occasions this year (2018) – one in March where it announced new iPads, its developer conference in June, the yearly iPhone occasion in September and a Mac occasion in October – Apple failed to point out AirPower or its status,” the report included.

The tech giant also stopped pointing out AirPower in its site after the September 2018 launch of the current iPhone models.

Well known Apple writer John Gruber, at that time, suggested that the AirPower was facing overheating problems and might have been “scrubbed” that suggests AirPower was getting too hot while attempting to charge 3 gadgets at the same time, the CNBC report included.

The iPhone-maker has likewise stayed tight-lipped about the rates of the product.

At the end of last year, famed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo seemed confident that the product could be launched in the first quarter, according to 9to5Mac.
