Apple All But Scraps Its AirPower Wireless Charging Pad
A year after Apple announced the AirPower wireless charging pad, signs of the device have largely vanished from its web site. The company first teased the charging solution in September 2017 when it debuted the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X. Apple initially said the charger would reach the market at some point in 2018. This week, the company updated its line of iPhones with the iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and Xr. Each of these phones supports wireless charging and yet Apple provided no update concerning the AirPower charger itself. Moreover, most information about the AirPower charger has been scrubbed from Apple's web site. Performing a search on Apple.com for "AirPower" turns up only a photo and a link to Apple's trademark listings. The AirPower mat was supposed to be able to charge an iPhone, an Apple Watch, and EarPods all at the same time. Earlier this year, Bloomberg reported that Apple was having difficulty engineering the charger due to the different charging requirements of the iPhone and Watch. It's possible the device is still under development, but Apple has not commented on the matter one way or the other.
