Apple Remains Silent After AirPower Misses 2018 Deadline

With the arrival of January 1, 2019, Apple's AirPower wireless charging mat has officially missed the 2018 deadline, because at the September 2017 keynote, Apple introduced the device for the first time and said it would be available to the market sometime in 2018, but it turns out that Apple delayed it.

Designed to differ from current Qi wireless charging pad on the market, AirPower has the advantage that it can wirelessly charge multiple devices simultaneously: it can charge Apple Watch, AirPods, and iPhone at the same time. In addition, AirPower can also be used with iOS devices that are charging to display the battery level of other devices on the iPhone lock screen.

Obviously, we haven't seen Apple launch AirPower in 2018, nor did we see Apple determine when the AirPods wireless charging box will be available to the users. The company has also remained silent on the pricing of AirPower. It is unclear whether AirPower has been completely canceled, though is expected to be officially released in the near future, likely 1Q of 2019, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests.

However, the thing is Apple has not issued a statement to announce the latest status of AirPower to the media. The tech giant did not mention the product at the September and October press conferences, nor did it respond to media requests for comment at the end of December, therefore, it is still in an uncertain state.
