Apple Website Leaks New AirPower Image Charging AirPods 2 and iPhone XS

Apple’s AirPower has become the company’s rare ‘vaporware’ moment, but that could change, as the Australian Apple website contains a hidden reference and image of the wireless charging mat.

iPhone in Canada reader Michael Bateman discovered the Australian Apple website source code contains reference to a ‘figure class’ named “image-wireless-airpower” which reveals the image seen below:

Apple’s website initially had images of AirPower when it was first announced, but the company removed them, delaying the product’s launch. Rumours in January claimed production had started for the wireless charging mat.

Bateman told iPhone in Canada he discovered the AirPower reference “a couple minutes before” he tweeted the discovery, adding “I was searching to try to see if there were any clues regarding AirPower and its launch. Recently, there has been a lot of ‘leaks’ on the Apple website.”

The image depicts only two devices charging on AirPower, but the charging mat was originally touted to charge three devices at once.

Apple’s Australian website is usually one of the first to get updated for new products. Apple announced new iPads, iMacs and AirPods 2 this week, all quietly via press release.

For Thursday, we had the embargo lifted on iPad mini 5 reviews. What will Friday hold? AirPower and the rumoured iPod touch refresh?
