Look whoís back! AriPower (re)appears in the iPhone user guide XS
The user manual included in the package of the iPhone XS includes a reference to AirPower, the pad charging presented a year ago by Apple and was never launched.
The fact that the user manual is mentioned that AirPower could mean that Apple plans were to launch pad refill together with the new iPhone. Something might be gone wrong at the last minute, forcing Apple even eliminating any reference to the AirPower on its web site.
In the manual of the iPhone XS, Apple invites you to recharge wirelessly on the device with AirPower or with a charger that is Qi.
According to various sources, Apple would not be able to launch the AirPower in time for September because of problems with overheating, problems with the software, and structural problems.
Recall that AirPower uses the protocol of Qi and is capable of charging up to three devices at the same time. The base is also able to detect the position of the device to better manage the load. With the AirPower we can (hopefully in the future) then reload at the same time iPhone, the Apple Watch Series, and the new AirPods (not yet available) via its housing. The devices may be placed in any point of the pad. Qi is based on the induction between two coils which provide the appropriate power to the device that requires charging. The base station contains a transmit coil that generates an oscillating magnetic field that, in turn, induces alternating current in the field of reception. AirPower does not use position-specific, as instead happens for the other bases on the market. Remember that, even with the use of the protocol Qi, AirPower can be used only with Apple devices.
