A report claims that Apple AirPower mat will launch in "late March," meaning that we could hear some official news on Monday's press event.
Digitimes is quoting supply chain sources that expect the Apple AirPower wireless charger for iPhones, Apple Watch and AirPods this month. It says that Lite-On Semiconductor, a maker of discrete and analog IC components, will soon kick off volume shipments of GPP (glass passivated package) bridge rectifiers needed for Apple's wireless charger AirPower.
As AirPods with wireless charging case are now available, it seems logical that the AirPower mat will be soon to follow. However, previous reports on the launch of the new gadget have surfaced many times in the past and have proved false.
The Wall Street Journal said that Apple executives approved production of the device earlier this year. Yesterday, it appears Apple finalized trademark rights for the AirPower name.
Apple updated AirPods on Wednesday, iMacs on Tuesday and launched new iPad mini and iPad Air on Monday.
