AirPower support spotted in latest iOS 12.2 developer beta, hinting at upcoming release

When Apple announced AirPower in September 2017 along with the debut of the iPhone X, it promised to roll out the accessory to the market sometime in 2018. Fast forward to today, and the AirPower has yet to arrive on store shelves mainly due to overheating issues.

However, the long wait for Apple's wireless charger might be over soon, if the sixth developer beta of iOS 12.2 is any indication. The latest software update contains code that pertains to support for AirPower along with modifications to the references that will determine when multiple devices are being juiced up by the wireless charger.

More specifically, AirPower will supposedly be capable of charging up to three devices at the same time and display their progress in a 3D animation on the screen of an iPhone. 9to5Mac claims that those changes are a strong indication of the imminent release of AirPower to the market.

Backing that claim is a report from last month, which suggested that one of Apple's suppliers may have started mass producing the wireless charger after the overheating problems were reportedly addressed. As to when AirPower will finally become available is only a matter of time.
