Apple's AirPower charging mat has finally entered production

Apple’s AirPower charging mat will reportedly start shipping soon

The website claims Apple's manufacturing partner Luxshare Precision has begun production of the device and is expected to launch along with an updated version of AirPods. The wireless charging pad was announced alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone X way back in 2017, and while Apple told us then that it would be released sometime in 2018, here we are in 2019 still waiting for an update.

Not so, apparently: rumours of AirPower's death have been greatly exaggerated, and according to one source the mythical charging matt is now entering general production.

This makes sense as Luxshare Precision is a member of the Wireless Power Consortium, so is adapt at making products with Qi charging.

Apple's wireless charger, which was supposed to let iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods charge wirelessly, has been a rare miss for Apple.


ChargerLab further claims that Pegatron is also said to be mass producing AirPower wireless charging pad accessory. This is the same Taiwanese company which also produces iPhones. Apple already knows the company's fans are disappointed by the delays of the product, so it will likely launch the product pretty soon. One of the more frequently cited rumours about the AirPower's rumoured death explained that the device was prone to overheating due to its complex circuitry.

"AirPower is finally coming", the tweet reads.

Apple's much-delayed AirPower charging mat is reportedly now in production, so is potentially slated for release soon.
