It wasn’t all that long ago that Apple enthusiasts would mock companies like Microsoft for announcing seemingly cool products that never shipped on time, if at all. Oddly enough, Apple over the past few years has fallen into the same bad habit of introducing products that ship embarrassingly behind schedule. Apple’s AirPods, for example, shipped more than two months later than expected and, upon actually launching, were incredibly hard to find.
The most egregious example of an Apple product that didn’t ship on time is of course Apple’s wireless charging mat, a product dubbed AirPower. Originally introduced in September of 2017 alongside the iPhone X, AirPower is designed to let users wirelessly charge their phone, Apple Watch, and AirPods case all at the same time. Flash forward 16 months and AirPower is still nowhere to be seen. What’s more, we haven’t heard a peep about the product from Apple, leaving many to wonder if it would ever launch or if Apple perhaps scrapped it entirely.
