Apple Officially Kills AirPower Wireless Charging Mat

While everyone was expecting Apple to launch its AirPower wireless charging pad at anytime, the announcement made today will undoubtedly surprise many.

The mat was meant to wirelessly charge up to three Apple products at once, such as an iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods wireless headphones.

"We've concluded AirPower will not achieve our high standards", an Apple manager told media in an email on Saturday. Even difficulties in getting the mat to "know" the charge levels of Apple devices when placed on the mat. The launch of AirPods 2 also seems to have been delayed as all material has 2018 written all over it while the product was actually launched in 2019.

From the statement, Apple isn't giving up on wireless charging just yet and we won't be surprised if they are already working on a newer version. Moreover, it would include an iPhone feature that would indicate battery information on-screen while it was on the charging mat. Apple said AirPower would ship the next year, however the company provided no answers for Apple fans who were growing impatient for an answer as to when they could get their hands on the new hardware. But, as it stands right now, the AirPower wireless charging mat is officially cancelled and we can go ahead and stop looking forward to it.

At the time, Apple promised a "world-class wireless charging solution" that would launch sometime in 2018.

Inside it would have to be implemented many charging coils so that by resting the devices on it there were no disconnection problems. It recently apologized for problems with the keyboard on some of its laptops. And, despite many people questioning the same, after nearly a year later at the launch of the next series iPhone X devices, the AirPower was nowhere to be seen. However, Apple hadn't shed any precise details about the reason for canceling the much-awaited AirPower, and the report cites the earlier mentioned power management issues might be one of the reasons for its cancellation.

The users of Apple's second-generation AirPods are pretty upset with the performance of the device.
