The product was slated to launch in 2018 with iPhone XS devices. To be able to charge an iPhone, Watch and AirPods at the same time requires multiple wireless charging technologies hidden inside (up to 22 charging coils, in fact) which is both expensive and a challenge, considering they can conflict with each other depending on placement. Its "reliable source" revealed that Luxshare Precision, which also makes AirPods and USB-C cables for Apple, is the manufacturer.
After missing all deadlines, Apple has finally kicked off the production of the much-anticipated AirPower charging pad.
While it is safe to assume that this wonder charging mat is dead, now a new rumour has indicated that the AirPower could go on sale very soon.More news: CDC: Up to 84000 Americans hospitalized with flu in past three months

ChargerLab further claims that Pegatron is also said to be mass producing AirPower wireless charging pad accessory.
After multiple delays and development issues, Hong Kong website ChargerLab has revealed (via MacRumors) that manufacturer Luxshare Precision, the company now in charge of making AirPods and Apple's USB-C cables, has finally kicked off AirPower production. "Pegatron is also an Apple OEM in Asia".
Back in October, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo released a research note saying AirPower could still launch, in "late 4Q18 or early 1Q19", along with new AirPods as well. Apple already knows the company's fans are disappointed by the delays of the product, so it will likely launch the product pretty soon.
