Precisely announced a year ago, iPhone X and iPhone 8 are Apple 's first mobile phones that can be charged wirelessly, and AirPower promised to be an all – in – one power supply solution for the company' s portable device lineup.
As Apple said in 2017, AirPower can juice up three devices at the same time. By using your own inductive charging technology, ovoid mats can charge iPhone, Apple Watch, Wireless AirPod case (no show in today's event) at the same time. In the stage greetings presentation, Phil Schiller's SVP in Worldwide Marketing said that this device could change the paradigm of wireless charging.
The paradigm seems to bring some problems to Apple.
Following the "Gather Round" event, Apple deleted almost all references from AirPower's website. This device has been shown to make an appearance on AirPod-dedicated page, turn on the previously unreleased AirPods wireless charging case and iPhone X.
According to Apple 's announcement, AirPower says it will arrive at the store shelves in 2018. The subsequent rumor was referring to the release date of March, but that timeline came. According to a report in June, Apple was about to begin selling in June, but there was a problem with overheating and was delayed in September.
Although Apple will still take weeks to do rumor deadlines, the company's decision to remove images and text on products from the website does not work for eagerly-anticipated accessories.
