The Fate of Apple’s Wireless Charging - The Sudden Death Of AirPower

 

Apple Wireless Charging Fate – AirPower Died

No one saw this coming; this is like a big blow to the fans of Apple Wireless Charging and iPhone users. “It looks like Steve Jobs died with apple” indeed as most tech guys said after apple became predictable. Early this year Samsung and Huawei shook the market with their foldable phone and for Samsung, the wireless PowerShare was just amazing.

Apple Wireless Charging device competition overtook by Samsung

We all expected Apple to take a course, not to copy but to outsmart Samsung and its new features but here we are. Although Apple was the first to talk about the AirPower in September 2017 but looking at how things are now we can’t expect Wireless PowerShare from Apple at least not now!

AirPower was a wireless charging mat designed by Apple. On September 12, 2017, it was introduced at the Steve Jobs Theater as the iPhone X and iPhone 8 was previewed.

Apple wireless charging just didn’t meet its high standards

 

AirPower charging mat has become something of a focal point for Apple’s recent habit of announcing envelope tickling products and not shipping them on time. The AirPods, famously, had a bit of a delay before becoming widely available and were shipped in limited quantities before finally hitting their stride and becoming a genuine cultural moment.

 

Now that Apple wireless charging is out, what great transformation will come out from them? Why so many coils? The idea was that it would charge your device wherever you put it on the mat. You don’t need to be precise with your placement of, say, an Apple Watch. And there were different sizes of coils that overlapped. And that caused heat and interference issues.
