The AirPower wireless charging pad has finally entered production: report
After multiple delays and development issues, Hong Kong website ChargerLab has revealed (via MacRumors) that manufacturer Luxshare Precision, the company currently in charge of making AirPods and Apple’s USB-C cables, has finally kicked off AirPower production. This would suggest that previous reports of a release in the first quarter of 2019 were accurate.
To further back the whole situation up, the aforementioned publication cited a second industry source. According to this one, Pegatron will soon commence AirPower production too. More specifically, it seems devices will start rolling off the production line by January 21. This same source also revealed that the accessory features three separate layers of coil inside.
Going by this information, it seems likely that Apple will confirm the AirPower charging mat’s release at its annual March event. Here the company is also expected to announce its next-gen AirPods, an updated iPad, and a new iPad Mini. The Cupertino giant may also launch the wireless AirPods charging case, although information about this accessory is scarce.
