New video shows AirPower prototype in action

The leak: A working prototype of the fateful AirPower wireless charging mat has surfaced in a new video, shared by collector Giulio Zompetti.

  • In the new video, you can see how AirPower would have worked when placing a device on the charging mat, complete with a 3D animation of the device placed and overview of all currently charging devices
  • Apple canceled AirPower in March 2019 after announcing it at the iPhone X event in September 2017 and numerous delays

Our take: This is the first time we’ve ever seen a functional AirPower prototype in the wild. Truly, this would’ve been an incredibly device and although the initial version didn’t meet Apple’s quality standards, there are rumors that something similar is still in the works. I hope something like this sees the light of day eventually.
