Apple has had a plethora of devices which turned out to be utter successes. But then, the trillion-dollar company has had its handful of failures as well. Starting off with some of the Macs in the past, we come to the recent horrible experience, the AirPower. Apple’s amazing, state of the art wireless charger which could charge an iPhone, Airpods and an Apple Watch all at the same time. While an ambitious announcement back in 2017, the AirPower project was cancelled two years later. Reports stated that it was due to technical glitches. The technological constraint of cooling the heat from three coils, mainly. This caused issues for Apple, making it an impractical and a fault product. Apple then, shamingly, cancelled the product.
According to the tweet from Cult of Mac, the company may be working on something new now, though.

Now, the article states that it takes its source from Bloomberg. According to the report, the company wants to push out a wireless charger of its own. This may be a first step into making iPhones completely portless (god, we hope not). It is also true that the competition, all have proprietary solutions as well, while Apple is late to the party once again. Not to mention, it would sort of be a take at redemption. The report further adds that this attempt wouldn’t be as exotic as the one AirPower offered. Instead, it would be a regular wireless charger which may not even have support for the Apple Watch.
Kuo even commented earlier this year that we may see a wireless power solution from Apple. And according to that, we may see the “AirPower” from Apple this year, along with the new iPhones and so on. Perhaps we would see what it can do when the product finally arrives.
