What does this do that current solutions already have at prob half the cost?
The AppleCare alone will be priced above that
If it has USB C then you know it’s coming with the new iPhones.
Can I get a coffee cup that keeps my coffee hot?
A day late and a dollar short.
On apple offical site
Belkin charge up. Costs £139 here.
Here you go ;p
Far more important is a first party AirPods wireless charging case. The third party options are ALL junk and will damage your AirPods.
And I firmly agree...this design is not at all what I want. The flat charging has always been ridiculous. The Belkin option looks much more attractive as it props up both phone and watch, and has a USB port for connecting another mini charger for the AirPods.
That makes no sense at all. There are entire other contexts that have nothing to do with speed.
Frankly if speed charging is your biggest concern/problem, you have usability and habit issues.
The original Milanese Loops won't work because the clasp can't slide out. Newer ones (Series 3 and later, if I recall correctly) allow the clasp to slide out so that the Watch can be laid flat to charge wirelessly without taking off the band.
there are people here who need more fake internet points for telling us all the Apple products they own
...on an Apple rumors website and forum board - what a shocker!
Also, the AirPower mat ONLY makes sense if you own multiple Apple products. That is because its main selling point is the ability to concurrently charge multiple devices.
This seems like it has less to do with the AirPower and more to do with wireless charging in general.
$149 is my bet. They need to recoup some of that lost profit due to the delay.
Also air power only makes sense if you have sport bands as other bands will make it tougher to charge your watch
This is now DOA (for me)...
let me guess? will cost only $999.00?
My life feels complete
Seems like no one is mentioning the advantage of shared charging
Ok, I suppose I’m not the only one getting bugged out when I pick up my phone after an hour of charging and it’s still on 7% because wifey unplugged it to charge her own phone Would be convenient with a shared charging.
Or when you have friends over with dying phones. Or you visit others and discretely look around for an available charger. Or politely ask and they have to look around for a charger. Would be convenient with a shared charging.
Every time I visit my brother in law I charge my phone with no hassle because he’s got one of those IKEA lamps with built in wireless charging (I still ask politely first). Super convenient but would feel even better if you could charge several items and not wonder if you’re blocking someone else from charging.
How many cups of overpriced coffee will this cost Tim?
I'm happy that Apple apparently was able to overcome whatever technical hurdles they encountered. I have a wireless charger now that I use at night while I sleep. I think I'll take that one to the office, and replace it with the AirPower for home.
As said 100 times already... wireless charging is a solution in search of a problem.
Hard pass. I'd rather have a PopSocket, and it's either/or.
Tim: “it’s only 399.”
