Apple's AirPower wireless charging pad was announced more than a year ago, but has still not been shipped. Apple has even removed its listing from its website. A new report says that the device is plagued by technical problems and may never be sent.

Well-known leak source Sonny Dickenson says that insiders have spilled the beans on AirPower's status and that it does not look good. The device is advertised as a wireless charging pad that supports up to three devices, such as your iPhone, Apple and AirPods, so they all charge at the same time.
Insider sources say that the device currently has problems with heat management, problems with communication between devices and interference problems. In short, AirPower is nothing more than a big bag of failures at this point.
From the report:
For the time being, as has been mentioned everywhere since Apple & # 39; s most recent iPhone event, Apple has now deleted almost every mention of the wireless charger from their website, suggesting that the product will be canceled, dramatically delayed, or taken back. to the drawing board with a completely new design that would look different from what Apple showed us during the 2017 iPhone X event.
The report goes on to say that Apple might be deleting AirPower and "AirPower's concept and trademark will likely be applied to a brand new product."

Right now it seems like a pretty safe bet to delete AirPower and think of something else that uses the same name. Apple had nothing more than prototypes to show off in 2017 and a year later that did not even.
If you feel like AirPower, or even in the promised AirPods wireless charging case, it might be time to look for alternatives.
