Apple AirPower Launch Pushed Back to September

Apple AirPower Launch Pushed Back to September Apple AirPower Launch Pushed Back to September

The company's devices would connect and charge without fiddly white cords and unsightly plugs and sockets.

The AirPower device was created to be able to charge more than one device as well, with space for up to three devices including iPhone, Apple Watches and AirPods simultaneously. An iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods can all be charged simply by laying them flat on the charging mat.

In the absence of AirPower, Apple has advised its fans to turn to third-party wireless charging solutions from third-party providers like Belkin. Company engineers have been toiling away to address problems. Apple wants to make sure that the charger doesn't overheat.

Apple did not immediately respond to PCMag's request for comment. Moreover, the separate charging sensors required to support up to 3 devices at the same time is apparently hard to integrate. Apple has always promised a 2018 release for AirPower, but it had been expected much sooner. They asked not to be identified discussing a product that hadn't been released yet.

To be clear, Gurman has said that Apple planned to completely remove the Lightning port from the device so that users would only have to wirelessly charge the handset. "Another is the complexity of the circuitry, according to people familiar with the device's development". Testing has purportedly ramped up with engineers using the device as their charger at the office.

Apple showed off AirPower in September 2017 and rumors suggest it'll be released a year later. Moments earlier, Apple unveiled had the first iPhones that supported wireless charging, including the iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone 8.

Wireless accessories have become a key way for Apple to differentiate its products.

However, what about the other features that users will not be able to take advantage of?

And the pricey accessories are only truly compatible with Apple devices, giving consumers more reasons to stick with iPhones and iPads over competing smartphones and tablets.

As mentioned by Bloomberg, Apple was planning to remove the lightning port from its flagship iPhone X but somehow the idea did not convert into reality. It ended up initially going on sale at the end of April in limited quantities, with more models being subsequently released in stores in May and June.

Apple faced similar issues with the HomePod smart speaker, which was released this year, about six months after the device was first announced. It ended up going on sale in February 2018.
