Official: AirPower will never have a docking station for wireless charging, Apple has closed the project

Back in 2017, at the presentation of the iPhone X, Apple announced a rather interesting product - a docking station for

AirPower wireless charging.It can simultaneously charge a smartphone, wireless headphones and a smart watch. After this, the company repeatedly postponed the release of AirPower, information about it appeared in instructions for other gadgets, and users waited for the docking station at every Apple event. Several years passed and the company finally put an end to that issue.

Fate decided

After many years of work, AirPower decided not to release it. Yes, yes, it turns out that the official announcement is not yet a guarantee that the device will hit store shelves.

Apple Senior Vice President of Engineeringhardware Dan Riccio said that work on the docking station has stopped and the project is being closed. “AirPower did not meet our high standards and we canceled the project,” Dan explained. He also apologized to users who were hoping to buy such a useful item, and emphasized that Apple still sees the future in wireless technologies.


In addition to the non-conformance clause, Applesays nothing more about the reasons for canceling charging. Rumor has it that AirPower did not turn out to be so thin and compact, and the overheating problem could not be solved. Apparently, the company decided not to risk other gadgets and design and closed the project altogether.
