On its YouTube channel, 91Tech offers what it says is the “first ever review” of Apple’s abandoned AirPower project. The video looks at “an actual 22-coil prototype unit more in-depth than anyone ever has before, from the hardware to even developer commands!”
The AirPower (pictured in an image released by Apple almost four years ago) was originally announced in September 2017 alongside the iPhone X. It was supposed to be able to charge a Qi-compatible iPhone, an Apple Watch, and a pair of AirPods (in a special wireless charging case) at the same time regardless of where they were placed on the pad.
However, there were constant rumors of production, engineering, and manufacturing difficulties. Seems those rumors were right, as Apple announced in March 2018 that work on the device was being canceled as, in Apple’s words, “will not achieve our high standards.”
