Apple is one of the biggest names on the market. The Cupertino firm is not just about iPhone and iPad as it has been expanding its business in recent years. In September 2017, Apple announced AirPower, the company’s first charging mat that allows you to recharge your iPhone. Apple’s move was widely received at the event.
In reality, Apple AirPower was initially set for release in Spring 2018, but it was nowhere to be found. The charging mat was also rumored to make its public debut in September last year, but there was no mention at the event. This raised concerns that Apple would discontinue its charging mat. In December 2018, reports claimed that Apple would launch its AirPower in 2019 and the charging mat officially entered into production at Apple’s facility in Hong Kong. Sources say that the release of AirPower helps boost Apple revenue this year. Besides, reports claim that AirPower will get a slight discount on every purchase of new iPhones this year.
According to the latest reports, Apple’s charging mat will launch later this year. And Apple is speeding up production of its AirPower to meet its huge demand. However, it remains unknown when exactly we are seeing it. Tech experts claim that AirPower will release to the public during this year’s holiday shopping season, which helps Apple drive its profit. Apple is expected to announce a number of new products this year. Sources say that there will be a new iPad Pro and iPad mini in March 2019. In reality, the Cupertino firm announced a new 9.7 inch iPad in March last year, so it makes sense that Apple will do the same thing this year.
Apart from AirPod and new iPads, Apple is rumored to announce a new MacBook Pro. This seems plausible as Apple upgrades its MacBook lineup every year. Last year, the Cupertino firm announced a refresh to its Mac series with Intel’s latest Coffee Lake processors and T2 revolutionary chip. However, the new MacBook Pro failed to live up to expectations as it saw slow sales performance. The new Mac is expected to feature new hardware and a new design this year.
