Apple kesulitan produksi AirPower

Apakah kamu masih ingat dengan AirPower yang diumumkan oleh Apple setahun yang lalu? Jika lupa, wajar. AirPower adalah aksesoris wireless charging yang diumumkan oleh Apple setahun yang lalu. Aksesoris ini bisa mengisi daya tiga perangkat sekaligus mulai dari iPhone, Apple Watch hingga AirPods.

Sayangnya, hingga hari ini Apple belum juga merilis AirPower kepada pengguna produknya. Menurut laporan terbaru dari Mark Gurman via Bloomberg, Apple mengalami kesulitan produksi AirPower:

An executive at an Apple partner that manufactures third-party wireless chargers for iPhones, who asked not to be identified, said the multi-device charging mechanism is challenging to build because it likely requires different sized charging components for the three types of devices, which would all overlap across the mat.

The AirPower charger is also more advanced than the current competition because it includes a custom Apple chip running a stripped down version of the iOS mobile operating system to conduct on-device power management and pairing with devices. Apple engineers have also been working to squash bugs related to the on-board firmware, according to the people familiar. They asked not to be identified discussing a product that hasn’t been released yet.

As predicted, Apple menggunakan prosesor khusus di AirPower. Hopefully it’ll be worth the wait.
