  • Apple’s AirPower charging mat will reportedly start shipping soon

16 months later, it's nowhere to be seen and the word "AirPower" suddenly can only be found in one place on Apple's website: a list of trademarks that also includes long-dormant properties like Newton and One-to-one.

This follows Apple previewing its charging mat in September 2017 - after which the company stated it would be released sometime in 2018.

Apple launches the big new iPhone X and shows off its AirPower charging mat capable of wirelessly charging multiple devices at once. That did not happen due to technical hurdles in the development process.

Apple's wireless charger, which was supposed to let iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods charge wirelessly, has been a rare miss for Apple. Apple's AirPods, for example, shipped more than two months later than expected and, upon actually launching, were incredibly hard to find.

If you've been wondering where Apple's AirPower charging accessory is, you're far from the only one.

After multiple delays and development issues, Hong Kong website ChargerLab has revealed (via MacRumors) that manufacturer Luxshare Precision, the company now in charge of making AirPods and Apple's USB-C cables, has finally kicked off AirPower production.

Apple has been delaying the official launch of its AirPower wireless charging pad over a year now, and honestly, we really don't know why it hasn't been launched yet.

If the rumour is true, it could mean that the long overdue product could finally reach the hands of consumers before too much longer.
