Spotted today by Loveios, the new report from comes from the same source that shared photos of the new 18W USB-C charger that’s expected to ship with the 2018 iPhones.
The details include the claim that Apple will indeed ship AirPower next month at the price of 1,000 yuan (about $ 145 USD).
As far as the September release, that lines up with what we heard from Bloomberg. That report also said that Apple had originally hoped to release the long-awaited product back in June, but had to push the launch back due to overheating issues.
As for price, $ 150 might end up being pretty accurate. With the ability to charge three Apple devices at once by placing them anywhere on the mat and the company’s norm of charging a premium for its accessories, a $ 100+ price tag seems all but certain. As Zac previously mentioned, Apple already charges $ 80 for just its Watch charger.
