Back in 2017, at the presentation of the iPhone X, Apple announced a rather interesting product – a docking station for wireless charging AirPower. On it, you can simultaneously charge a smartphone, a wireless headset, and a smartwatch.
After that, the company repeatedly postponed the AirPower release dates, information about it appeared in instructions for other gadgets, and users waited for the docking station at each Apple event. A few years have passed – and the company has finally put an end to that question.
After years of work, AirPower decided not to release. Apple cancels AirPower product. Yes, it turns out, the official announcement is not a guarantee that the device will hit the store shelves.
Apple senior vice president of hardware development Dan Riccio (Dan Riccio) said that the work on the docking station is terminated, the project is closed. “AirPower did not meet our high standards, and we have canceled the (Apple AirPower product) project”, – Dan explained. He also apologized to users who hoped to buy such a useful thing and stressed that Apple still sees the future in wireless technology.
In addition to the non-compliance clause, Apple no longer says anything about the reasons for canceling the charge. Rumor has it that AirPower did not work so thin and compact, and the problem with overheating could not be solved. Apparently, the company decided not to risk other gadgets and design and generally closed the project.
