Apple unveiled its AirPower wireless charging mat alongside the announcement if the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X. It was a perfect time as Apple has introduced wireless charging capabilities on the iPhone, which was a highly demanding feature. AirPower is not your everyday wireless charger. It has the ability to charge your Apple Watch, iPhone and AirPods simultaneously all on the same surface. Apple hinted a 2018 debut and it has been almost two months since the start of the year. Now, we're finally bestowed with a rough time frame for the release. So let's dive in to see some more details on the matter.
Apple's AirPower Charging Mat Said To Be Released Next Month, Pricing Unclear
According to a new report published by Macotakara, Apple's release of AirPods is on schedule to go on sale in March. The wireless accessory will be sold at the company's retail App Stores as well as on other retailers like Best Buy.
However, the report does not mention any specific date of release as it only mentions that AirPower will be released sometime next month. The report tallies with the previous report from the Apple Post that launch will occur sometime in March. In addition to this, another aspect mentioned in the report details that Apple will also sell the updated wireless AirPods case through its retail stores only. So you would not have the option available to get one for yourself through third-party retailers such as Best Buy.
Macotajara does not shed any light on the AirPods wireless charging case in the report. While a rough time frame for AirPower debut is reported to be in March, there are details on prices mentioned. According to a Polish online retailer, the wireless charging mat would go for $199. This is a lot to pay for wireless charging. However, final conclusions rest once the AirPower charging mat is released.
There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details. This is all, for now, folks, what are your thoughts on Apple's forthcoming AirPower wireless charging mat? Are you willing to spend as much as $200 for a wireless charging mat? Share your views with us in the comments.
