Apple wireless charger

According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple is still working on a future wireless charger that would function similarly to the now-defunct AirPower.

Gurman reaffirms prior rumors in the newest issue of the journalist’s Power On newsletter that Apple still wants to build a wireless charging adapter that will charge several devices at once, such as an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods.

The AirPower was initially introduced by Apple in September 2017, alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. Apple stated at the time that the charging device will be available in 2018, however this did not occur. Apple shelved the project in March 2019 after months of speculations regarding development concerns.


Meanwhile, ever since the tech company has introduced MagSafe charging for iPhones, as well as the MagSafe Duo attachment, which can wirelessly charge an Apple Watch and an iPhone simultaneously, despite the fact that the Duo is merely two independent wireless chargers coupled together.

However, sources indicate that the tech company still intends to create a charging device capable of charging all three devices at the same time.

Bloombergs Mark Gurman believes Apple is still looking at charging methods that do not rely on contact-based inductive charging technologies. He specifically states that Apple is developing “short and long distance wireless charging devices” and that the business “imagines” a future in which all of its key gadgets can charge one other. “Imagine an iPad charging an iPhone, and that iPhone charging AirPods or an Apple Watch,” Gurman continues.

We’ve long heard stories of so-called reverse wireless charging features for the most current iPhone models. It has come the closest with its MagSafe battery pack, which can get power from an iPhone while it is plugged in and charging.
