This should be interesting for the Apple fans, especially those who have just dropped cash on the new AirPods or the wireless charging case for the first gen to go alongside their updated Apple Watch & iPhone…
…though it leaves a nice little market gap for @AnkerOfficial to try and fill
I don’t know why but I just find it hilarious. They announced the product in 2017 as if they had a sure plan of how to build this thing and then in late 2018 I believe, they removed all mention of AirPower from their website. However, they still have the picture on AirPods box. I was skeptical about it when they announced in 2017 saying you can place your iPhone, watch, etc. anywhere on the pad. Kinda too ambitious in my opinion
I watched Marques Brownlee’s (MKBHD) video this morning and it’s still hilarious to me I would appreciate if Apple made something but didn’t announce it before hand. Having something launch that wasn’t expected or has unexpected features has a whole different feeling than something they announce before hand to hype things up. Besides, not announcing something before hand makes sure you are safe if something goes wrong, like the thermal stuff that Apple just could not figure out.
Apple deserves a lot of slack on this. They pretty much tried to do something impossible. The trick wasn’t to get it to work, the trick was to get it to work safely and reliably. The laws of physics fought them pretty hard on this one.
Premature announcement is something picked after Jobs passing
Look at original iPhone. It was so secret that even for own employees it was news…
It had many flaws but all that drowned in the excitement and new features.
