Apple officially announced the cancellation of the development of the AirPower wireless charger early last year. However, there is now evidence that the company has not completely phased out all developments in this area. It is reported that the American company is working on a couple of updated wireless chargers. One of them, called Apple AirPower Mini, was first shown live on photo.
Apple AirPower Mini charger is noticeably smaller than existing wireless charging solutions from competing companies. Earlier it was rumored that Apple would equip the iPhone 12 line with a special magnetic ring under the back cover, which is designed to work wirelessly charging system. The size of Apple AirPower Mini corresponds to the size of this ring, judging by previous photos.
Although Apple hasn’t reported anything yet on the wireless charger, a well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported earlier this year that Apple was working on a “smaller wireless charger” called the AirPower Mini.
