It’s Sunday, you all must be chilling at your home or going out somewhere to enjoy. However, I don’t have a day off as I’m here to present to you some interesting news. Let’s get started.
Apple has formally called off the AirPower wireless charger
During the 2017 iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X launch, Apple also showcased a futuristic wireless charger called AirPower. As per Apple, one single AirPower charger could have been used to charge your iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods as well. However, the plan didn’t go well.
At first, Apple said the AirPower wireless charger will arrive sometime in 2018. Although that never happened. There were numerous rumors about the product. But now Apple has finally announced that they have canceled the AirPower wireless charger. In a statement an Apple spokesperson said,
After much effort, we’ve concluded AirPower will not achieve our high standards and we have cancelled the project. We apologize to those customers who were looking forward to this launch. We continue to believe that the future is wireless and are committed to push the wireless experience forward,
As per our sources, the AirPower faced over-heating issue as it was using a lot more coils than a standard Qi Wireless charger.
