Apple's mythical AirPower accessory is apparently back in production

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. And after months of wait, the AirPower just disappeared into the air.

According to reputable charging experts ChargeLab, though, the AirPower mat is alive and well - and now entering mass production, finally. Apple did say that the wireless charging pad would launch in 2018, but it didn't happen. AirPower - Apple's multi-device charging pad - was first unveiled back in September 2017 alongside the iPhone X with a release date of 2018. That's based on a tip from unnamed sources working in the Apple supply chain. "Luxshare Precision is also the maker of Apple AirPods and USB-C cables".

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. ChargerLAB followed that tweet with another, claiming that Taiwanese electronic manufacturer, Pegatron, will also be involved in mass-producing AirPower from January 21.The tweet further states that a company employee has informed ChargerLAB that AirPower will have a total of three coils in a "8-7-7 configuration", from bottom to top.

It's also worth noting that reputed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo about two months ago issued an investor note claiming that AirPower could launch sometime during the first quarter of 2019.
