A Simultaneous Charge

Apple’s AirPower Aims to Simplify Wireless Charging


At today’s big event, Apple announced three new iPhones — the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the beautiful iPhone X — and a next-gen Apple Watch, all of which support Qi wireless charging. It only makes sense that the Cupertino company revealed that it’s working on a device that would charge them all.

Meet the AirPower. It’s a oval-shaped wireless charging pad that’s capable of charging your new iPhone, Apple Watch Series 3 and AirPods (with its second-gen case) all at the same time. The AirPower will support fast charging, too. Unfortunately, the only thing Apple didn’t reveal much in regards to price. It’s expected to be released sometime in 2018. If you don’t care about staying completely loyal to Apple, you can purchase a number of other Qi wireless stations online now.
