Apple cancels AirPower wireless charger

Apple canceled its AirPower wireless charger, due to the difficulty of achieving the company's "high standards" for the product, through TechCrunch .

"After much effort, we have come to the conclusion that AirPower will not achieve our high standards and we have canceled the project.We apologize to the customers who were waiting for this release.We continue to believe that the future is wireless and we are committed to promoting the wireless experience, "Apple's vice president of hardware engineering said in a statement to TechCrunch .

The AirPower charging platform was first announced during The company's iPhone X event in September 2017, when Apple revealed wireless charging as one of the new features for the iPhone X. At the time, Apple said it would ship sometime in 2018, but then the company stayed on silence for 18 months without sending the device.

Apple had promised some interesting features, such as the ability to charge up to three devices at once (specifically, an Apple Watch, AirPod headsets and an iPhone), a unique beam-forming technology that uses multiple coils that allow the charger to work without having to do so. find an exact sweet spot on the pad and a software overlay for the iPhone to display the energy on all three charging devices at the same time.

Since then, there have been numerous reports on engineering challenges and overheating problems (specifically related to multiple coil design) during product development. But there were also some signs of hope: Apple had mentioned the AirPower not released in some packaging materials, and it is displayed in the box of the new AirPods wireless charging case. Earlier this month, The Wall Street Journal reported that Apple had given approval for AirPower to enter mass production. But now, more than 550 days after being announced, it seems that the product will never be shipped.
