Apple’s AirPower wireless charging mat was announced in 2017 alongside the iPhone X but it has yet to make its debut. There were times when it was even rumored that the accessory could have been shelved, but more recent rumors are claiming otherwise. In fact according to a report from DigiTimes, the AirPower accessory could actually be launching next week.
According to DigiTimes, “The sources said that Apple’s AirPower wireless charger for iPhones, Apple Watch and AirPods is set to be officially launched in late March, which will significantly drive up Lite-On’s revenues for the second quarter of 2019.” While the publication does have a bit of a spotty record when it comes to Apple rumors, there is a good chance that they could be right this time.
This is because over the past week, Apple has been steadily refreshing some of its products. This includes the iMac Pro which got new RAM options, the iMac which had not been updated for almost two years, and also the AirPods whose second-gen variant was launched with improved battery life, a new H1 chip, and support for wireless charging.
Also a new image of the AirPower was spotted on Apple’s website, fueling speculation that a launch could be close at hand. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but do check back with us next week to see if the rumors pan out.
