(Opinion) Apple, We Need AirPower to Return

Today marks the demise of AirPower, the wireless charger that we’ve been longing for a year and a half. 6 Apple events have passed and we’re still disappointed in why Apple didn’t release AirPower for a tremendous amount of time. Although Apple spilled the beans about AirPower in the packaging of the AirPods 2, iPhone XS pamphlets, and some parts of the Apple website. But all of these mentions of AirPower has been faded for a few months, and there were piles of rumors about the AirPower production and many more. Now it’s the 29th of March as of this writing, and the AirPower has suddenly annulled their development period due to quality concerns.

I believe that Apple should’ve not omit a revolutionary project for an Apple product after several months of stringent testing and development. I disagree with the claim from Apple’s Senior Vice President of Engineering, Dan Riccio, that the AirPower wouldn’t make it to Apple’s standards. He said in the statement that:
“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.”
I can infer that the engineering team at Apple is putting too much work in the AirPower, that they can’t work together to make the final product flawless. They really should innovate more to the product, and then redo the entirety of the project to make it like the wireless charging case of the AirPods. Many people said that it’s disappointing to retire development of the AirPower after waiting for every Apple event to have it released to the public.

This is an unfair and unexpected event to have Apple reject a product with a sleek design because when you look at it in the September 2017 Apple event, it resembles a quality product. But in my opinion, every rumor that comes up to the AirPower has been turning to a lie. When there were reports of the AirPower starting production in January, there’s not enough evidence to prove that it started its production. Even though there were images of AirPower leaked in 2018, and recently, the AirPods 2 packaging, people still thought Apple is going to release AirPower. But all of the above is the answer to “No.”

Therefore, I am persuading Apple to revive the AirPower wireless charger because, in my perception, it is a beautiful, minimal wireless charger I’ve ever seen. I surely agree with the statement as it’s unfair to throw away such a good iPhone accessory after a year and a half of waiting for it to get released.
