Leaked photos show Apple’s next-gen AirPods for the first time ever Well, Apple fans, it looks like your favorite gadget maker has one more surprise up its sleeve ahead of the holidays this year. 

Apple will begin selling its AirPower wireless charging mat next month, according to Japanese website Mac Otakara. According to the original rumor , Apple intends to make the AirPower mat available to purchase concurrently at Best Buy and other Authorized Apple Resellers alongside its

AirPower release date. When Apple announced its AirPower wireless charging mat on 12 September 2017 the company confirmed that The one thing that leaves us some hope is the fact that there is known to be an AirPods update in the works which will see those headphones gain a

Apple’s AirPower wireless charging mat is rumored to be in production

Apple’s long-delayed AirPower wireless charging mat might finally be in production, if rumors are to believed. Word comes via a tweet from ChargerLAB (via MacRumors), which says that it’s learned from a “credible source” that Apple has begun manufacturing the long-delayed wireless charging mat.

If true, it could mean that the long-overdue product could finally reach the hands of consumers before too much longer. Apple announced in September 2017, that it was introducing wireless charging capabilities in with the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, and gave a preview for its own wireless charging mat that would not only charge the iPhone, but its Apple Watch and AirPods. At the time, Apple didn’t announce a price — only that it was expected to be released sometime in 2018.

Apple may release AirPods with wireless charging in early 2019

Apple may release AirPods with wireless charging in early 2019 When Apple effectively scrubbed all mention of its AirPower wireless charging mat when it didn't show up a year after its unveiling, that raised a question: would the wireless charging case for AirPods meet a similar fate? 

Why Apple ’ s AirPower Wireless Charger Is Taking So Long to Make. Unlike wireless chargers on the market today, the AirPower is designed to charge three devices simultaneously: an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods with a still- to - be -released wireless charging case.

Apple . Apple . When Apple unveiled the iPhone X in 2017, the company finally dipped its toes into the world of wireless charging by announcing support for the wireless standard Qi. To complement the iPhone’ s new capabilities, Apple also unveiled its own AirPower wireless charging mat .

That obviously didn’t happen: there were rumors that the device would ship in March 2018, but that date came and went, and Apple hasn’t said anything about the device in any of the major announcement events since that first announcement.

In June 2018, rumors surfaced that Apple was having technical troubles with the device, chiefly that it was overheating due to the complexity of the requirement of charging three different devices at once. More recently, analysts predicted that Apple was hoping to have the device out to consumers in late 2018 or early 2019. Apple is also rumored to be releasing an updated version of its AirPods sometime this year, specifically with support for wireless charging, which fueled some rumors that it was holding off on the update until the AirPower mat would be available. MacRumors noted that there have been reports that Apple has since overcome the technical challenges that it faced with the device.

If what ChargerLAB says is accurate, that could mean that we’ll see more about them in the near future. The site’s tweet says that the devices are being manufactured at Luxshare Precision, which already manufactures Apple’s AirPods and some cords. MacRumors translated a screenshot of ChargerLAB’s WeChat conversation, in which the site’s source expects the device be released soon. But given the charger’s history of delays and technical challenges, it’s probably best not to get one’s hopes up just yet.

The most trusted source of Apple rumors says 2019 iPhones will have these features.
