The Abominable Snowman of Apple products — AirPower — is resurfacing. But we’ll believe that the technological monster myth is real when we see it.
The Hong Kong website ChargerLAB reported, via a “reliable source,” that AirPower cordless billing mats are already in manufacturing. Independently, an app designer stated he had heard that Apple overcame its continuous manufacturing problems with AirPower. Taken with each other, these growths suggest the long-gestating technology might finally become a reality.
We’ve heard this track and also dancing previously, though.
AirPower was the cordless charging floor covering that Apple introduced in 2017. However since that initial tease, we’ve seen nada, zip, zilch of any kind of real materialization.
In March 2018, there was additionally proof that AirPower was coming “any day currently,” as Mashable previously reported. However by April, a Bloomberg record showed the product was pestered with troubles.
Ever since, the mats have actually been conspicuously missing from Apple occasions, where they constantly go unmentioned. Reports flowed that the manufacturing was struggling with getting too hot and also disturbance troubles. Some even reported that the project had been canceled altogether.
Mashable senior technology correspondent Raymond Wong is likewise skeptical.
So where are we with AirPower? Terminated, or coming quickly?
With the quantity of reports swirling around this product launch, it’s just prematurely to state. Until we see a real announcement from Apple itself, we’ll assume AirPower is where it has been for months: no place.
