AirPower to Launch in 'Late March' According to DigiTimes Sources

MacRumours.com Friday, 22 March 2019
Apple plans to release its long-awaited wireless charging mat AirPower in "late March" according to Taiwanese publication DigiTimes:
The report cites unnamed "industry sources" within Apple's supply chain:

Lite-On Semiconductor, a maker of discrete and analog IC components, is expected to see its second-quarter revenues register a double-digit sequential growth as it will soon kick off volume shipments of GPP (glass passivated package) bridge rectifiers needed for Apple's wireless charger AirPower, according to industry sources.

The sources said that Apple's AirPower wireless charger for iPhones, Apple Watch and AirPods is *set to be officially launched in late March*, which will significantly drive up Lite-On's revenues for the second quarter of 2019.

There are 10 days remaining in March including today.

Yesterday, after receiving a tip from reader Michael Bateman, MacRumors uncovered what appears to be a new image of the AirPower with an iPhone XS and the new AirPods wireless charging case on it, providing yet more evidence that Apple still plans to release the wireless charging mat at some point.
MacRumors also uncovered evidence to suggest that Apple has secured the rights to the AirPower trademark in the United States.

The Wall Street Journal this week reported that Apple approved production of the AirPower earlier this year, while reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said the AirPower will be released within the first half of 2019.

AirPower is designed to charge multiple Apple devices at once, including the iPhone 8 and newer, Apple Watch Series 3 and newer, and AirPods when they are placed in the new optional wireless charging case introduced on Wednesday.Tags: digitimes.com, AirPower
