Apple’s Infamous AirPower Might Not Be Dead After All: Says Reports

Apple Wants to Revive AirPower and Give It True Wireless Charging Abilities.

Despite Apple failing to bring its AirPower to fruition, new reports by Mark Gurman suggest that AirPower might not be dead after all, as Apple still intends to create a multi-device charger. At the same time, the company is also rumoured to be working on a long and short-range true wireless charging technology that ditches the traditional induction-based wireless charging.

Apple’s infamous AirPower, which was initially announced along with the iPhone X back in September 2017, was supposed to be a wireless charging pad that would charge your iPhone, AirPods and your Apple Watch, all at the same time. However, it never saw the light of the day. Apple suddenly cancelled it in 2019 because of overheating related issues.

Nevertheless, according to Mark Gurman’s latest “Power On” newsletter for Bloomberg, Apple is expected to be still working on the idea of a charger capable of recharging multiple items at the same time.

He suggests that the new charger could very well be using a true wireless charging technology based on an earlier patent for a “Wireless power delivery system with device movement detection,” which was issued by Apple earlier this year.

He also claims that, apart from the aforementioned long-range wireless charging technology, Apple is also working on short-range wireless charging technology that could enable reverse wireless charging where “all of Apple’s major devices can charge each other.”

While this new technology also seems to be based on an earlier patent issued by Apple, which points to a new technology that would allow your Mac to wirelessly charge your Magic Keyboard and Mouse at the same time.

Overall, we still don’t know if and when this new wireless charging technology will see the light of the day. However, if Apple goes forward with this technology, we can expect to see a new wave of innovations throughout the smartphone industry.
