Apple Cancels AirPower Wireless Charging Mat

Apple on Friday confirmed that it has officially canceled AirPower. In a statement to TechCrunch’s Matthew Panzarino, SVP of Hardware Engineering Dan Riccio said that after much effort, the company has decided to cancel the project.

From the report:
“After much effort, we’ve concluded AirPower will not achieve our high standards and we have cancelled the project. We apologize to those customers who were looking forward to this launch. We continue to believe that the future is wireless and are committed to push the wireless experience forward,” said Dan Riccio, Apple’s senior vice president of Hardware Engineering in an emailed statement today.
So what happened? It sounds like Apple just set the bar way too high. When you have three charging coils that close together, overheating becomes a problem. Most of the time the company figures out a way to work around these kinds of barriers.

What do you think guys ?
