Bloomberg reports Apple will release AirPower in September.
Mark Gurman, a well-known reliable journalist from Bloomberg, has published a new report. He expects that Apple will release AirPower this September, but Apple had aimed on June for it. Due to overheating issues, AirPower was again postponed.
Mark Gurman: "Apple didn't say when in 2018 it would release AirPower, but engineers hoped to launch the charger by June. The aim now is to put it on sale before or in September, according to one of the people. In recent months, some Apple engineers have ramped up testing of the device by using it as their charger at the office, another person said."
Gurman believes that AirPower will get a 'stripped' version of iOS: "The AirPower charger is also more advanced than the current competition because it includes a custom Apple chip running a stripped down version of the iOS mobile operating system to conduct on-device power management and pairing with devices. Apple engineers have also been working to squash bugs related to the on-board firmware, according to the people familiar."
Currently, only the iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and Apple Watch Series 3 models support wireless charging. Apple will probably also release an AirPods case, which allows you to charge them wirelessly as well.
