Apple’s AirPower wireless charging mat was announced in 2017 and was supposed to launch this year, but clearly that was not the case. There were some reports suggesting that the AirPower project was “doomed”, but as spotted by MacRumors, Apple has job listings in which the AirPower is still mentioned, suggesting that the project is still very much alive and well.

One of the listings reads, “The mission of the Wireless Power Technology team – Build the world’s best Wireless Charging user-experience by inventing state-of-the-art technologies. The Wireless Power Technology team develops bleeding-edge Wireless Charging designs that are central to Apple’s products – the iPhone, Apple Watch, AirPods, AirPower and more.”

Unfortunately there is still no word on when Apple plans on launching the accessory. According to the reports, one of the problems faced by Apple is overheating, in which the charger seems to have problems regulating its heat and we’re sure the last thing Apple wants is a product that overheats.

Apple has referenced the AirPower several times in the past, but like we said, despite these references, none of them seem to suggest when the accessory will launch (if at all), so we’ll just have to wait and hopefully come 2019 we might actually see it.
