At Apple's September 2017 product event, the company said AirPower would be released in 2018. The company hasn't mentioned it since, even at its Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this month.
The pad charges devices using a process called induction, but Bloomberg reports that technical problems, such as ensuring that it doesn't overheat, and the circuitry's complexity are responsible for the delays.
The timing of AirPower's rumored release would make sense, since we've also heard that Apple will release three new iPhones in September.
Apple didn't respond to a request for comment.
