A follow-up update from ChargerLab indicates that Pegatron is starting mass production on January 21.
While Apple has been silent on the fate of AirPower, a new report suggests the wireless charging mat has entered production. ChargerLab claims that manufacturer Luxshare Precision has started production of AirPower, suggesting the product has not been canceled. A follow-up update from ChargerLab indicates that Pegatron is starting mass production on January 21.
