Apple's VP of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller unveiling the AirPower at a company event in September 2017.

  • Apple announced the AirPower in September last year, saying that it would launch in 2018.
  • The AirPower is a physical, wireless pad which can charge multiple Apple devices at the same time without the need for cables.
  • A report from MacOtakara suggests the AirPower will launch as soon as March.


Apple is reportedly on track to release its AirPower charging unit later this year, according to a report from MacOtakara (which we first saw via 9to5Mac).

AirPower is Apple's wireless charging pad; an oval-shaped surface large enough to hold your iPhone X, 8, or 8 Plus, or Apple Watch and charge them. The whole setup works without cables and can charge up to three devices at once.

AirPower will also work with AirPod headphones, provided you buy Apple's new battery case for the headphones with wireless charging capabilities. It's likely the AirPower units and the charging-enabled AirPods case will launch at the same time, though there's no mention of that in MacOtakara's report.

Apple is separately expected to launch a second-generation pair of AirPods.
