Earlier this week, we commented on some of the possible technical difficulties faced by Apple that, hypothetically, could postpone (or cancel, who knows) the launch of its infamous induction charger, the AirPower.
Now, the owners of the brand new iPhones XS / XS Max are bringing a curious detail to the social media about the accessory in the introduction guide for these devices, suggesting that there is still hope for the Apple wireless charger.

But they definitely mention it [o AirPower] in the new iPhone XS Max manual.
Place the iPhone face up on the AirPower or Qi certified wireless charger. You can also use the Lightning connector to charge your iPhone and connect accessories.
It is unclear why Apple left the reference to AirPower in the manuals for the iPhones XS / XS Max, since, after the launch of these devices, it removed almost all mentions of the charger from its website. On the day of the special event, held earlier this month, the company also refused to discuss the development of the device with journalists.
Therefore, the silence and rumors about production problems culminated in speculation that Apple had discontinued AirPower even before its launch. However, perhaps the fact that she mentioned the charger in these manuals indicates that the company planned to start selling with the new iPhones.
Furthermore, the 9to5Mac analyzed the codes for iOS 12.1 beta, released this week, and noted that the component of the Apple mobile operating system responsible for managing the charging interface that appears when AirPower is used has been updated, which may mean that Apple is still working actively on the device.
Originally, AirPower was created to recharge the iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPod case at the same time. As we said, a report released this week suggested that Apple is facing a number of problems involving heat management, communication between devices and some mechanical and interference problems on the device.
Do you believe that we will still see AirPower this year? Tell us your theory!
