The Apple AirPower mat is reportedly entering mass production at last

14 January 2019

Originally introduced in September of 2017 alongside the iPhone X, AirPower is created to let users wirelessly charge their phone, Apple Watch, and AirPods case all at the same time.

The Twitter account ChargerLAB, based in Hong Kong, reports that Apple has begun the manufacturing process for the AirPower mat, meaning a release date may not be far away. Luxshare is a member of Wireless Power Consortium, the force behind the promotion of its Qi standard.

"Another source claims Pegatron is set to start mass produce AirPower at Jan 21", the tweet reads. According to this one, Pegatron will soon commence AirPower production too. This is the same Taiwanese company which also produces iPhones. Apple already knows the company's fans are disappointed by the delays of the product, so it will likely launch the product pretty soon.

Winter Storm WARNING expanded, in effect until 9 p.m.
Saturday night's snow is warm overrunning cold, with light, dry snow and will take some time to moisten up the atmosphere. The snow should begin to taper off early Sunday morning, leaving behind a coating to an inch for most of Philadelphia.

The Verge reported that in June 2018 Apple was rumoured to be having problems with the charging mat, including overheating when it charged three devices at once.

After multiple delays and development issues, Hong Kong website ChargerLab has revealed (via MacRumors) that manufacturer Luxshare Precision, the company now in charge of making AirPods and Apple's USB-C cables, has finally kicked off AirPower production.
