This much-awaited Apple product may finally be launched this year

When Apple launched the iPhone X in 2017, it also unveiled its wireless charging mat, which still happens to be a much-awaited product in 2019. However, if rumours are to be believed, Apple’s AirPower wireless charging mat may finally be in production.

According to a tweet by ChargerLAB (via MacRumors), ‘credible sources’ have said that Apple has finally started manufacturing the AirPower wireless charging mat that has been delayed for so long. If this is indeed true, a much-awaited and talked-about Apple product may soon be on its way to the customers.

To recall, Apple had given the world a first look at the AirPower wireless charging mat in September 2017 when it launched the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. It showcased how the charging mat had the capability of not only charging the iPhone, but also the Apple Watch and AirPods. The company was expected to announce the pricing of its product in 2018.  Initial reports also said that the product would be shipped in March 2018. But then, that obviously didn’t happen and we still don’t know about the details involving its pricing or availability. Apple has held various conferences during this time to announce its various products, but it hasn’t mentioned the AirPower wireless charging mat again.

In June 2018, we learned that the company was facing some technical troubles with the much-awaited charging mat, primarily because it was overheating due to charging three different devices at the same time. And Apple obviously didn’t want to ship the product with an issue like that. Recently, some analysts said that the technology giant will launch the device for customers in either late 2018 or early 2019. We should also mention that Apple will reportedly also release the upgraded version of its AirPods this year, which will come with support for wireless charging. So it can be a possibility that the two will be launched together and Apple was in fact, holding off on the update to AirPods till the time it released its AirPower charging mat.

The report in MacRumours also suggested that Apple is no longer facing any technical issues that it faced with the device earlier. Although there is no confirmation from Apple on this, if what ChargerLAB says is true, we may finally get to use the AirPower charging mat soon.
