Based on source code from the AirPods page of Apple’s website in Australia, MacRumors has 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.
Apple updated its AirPods page yesterday following the release of the second-generation pair, and this image was intended to showcase the new optional wireless charging case on a Qi-enabled charging mat, but Apple never ended up featuring the image publicly. We found it within a CSS stylesheet.
The Wall Street Journal yesterday reported that Apple approved the AirPower for production earlier this year and reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently said the AirPower will be released within the first half of 2019.
