Apple has called off its "AirPower" product that was supposed to charge an iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPod at the same time.
AirPower was primarily aimed at people who owned multiple Apple devices, including an iPhone, an Apple Watch or even the latest generation of AirPods. Last year, some experts on the subject proclaimed that AirPower was ‘doomed to fail’, as the mat contained too many overlapping coils to work effectively. That has essentially been confirmed today by Apple’s cancellation announcement.
"After much effort, we've concluded AirPower will not achieve our high standards and we have canceled the project," Dan Riccio, Senior Vice President of Hardware Engineering at Apple, told TechCrunch on Friday
Apple had announced the AirPower Charging Mat back in September 2017.
