- AirPower testing has reportedly been faraway from the schedule for 2021
- Apple canceled AirPower last year for not meeting up to its standards
- Rumors had indicated that Apple was still performing on AirPower
Apple has reportedly stopped performing on AirPower, the company’s multi-device wireless charger that never saw the sunshine of day. consistent with tipster Jon Prosser, all AirPower prototyping and testing have been faraway from the schedule for 2021, and sources doubt it’ll ever be picked copy again. Apple had announced AirPower in 2017, but called it off two years later for “not achieving Apple’s high standards.” However, Jon, Prosser – an equivalent tipster – had said earlier this year that the project had been revived.
Prosser said on Twitter that it appeared like once more, the AirPower was dead. This information comes a few weeks after Apple launched MagSafe, charging accessories to travel with the new iPhone lineup. iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max feature magnets on the rear to assist align compatible wireless chargers. MagSafe chargers are Qi standard compliant and deliver charging accelerates to 15W. MagSafe seems to be Apple’s chosen alternative to AirPower, hence it’s likely that the tech giant won’t retrieve AirPower.
The tipster had shared images of an alleged prototype earlier this year, saying that the most problem of the AirWatch prototype not supporting Apple Watch had been solved. However, these photos were reported to be fake.
Apple had announced in March 2019 that it had been canceling the AirPower wireless charging pad. “After much effort, we’ve concluded AirPower won’t achieve our high standards, and that we have canceled the project,” Dan Riccio, Apple’s senior vice chairman of hardware engineering, had said at the time.
