Although the event will focus on learning, we’re expecting the company uses the spotlight to pepper on some more organize about result outside the classroom. It doesn’t damage that talking point to a dead March ship date for AirPower, which lines up perfectly.

AirPower and new iPhones consider the company’s deep jump into wireless charging and its receiving of the Qi standard. Wireless charging has been made into devices for years. But until January, 2 rival standards, Powermat and Qi reduced variation overall.

But we’re expecting the company soon shines extra light on this jealous feature. AirPower demo displays the iPhone screen tracking all the gadgets now on the charger, and also their battery situation. It isn’t transparent if this will operate with non-Apple gadgets.

How fast will it charge?

The company didn’t share any details of the charging activity. But the Mophie and Belkin charging pads sold through Apple’s site demand output up to 7.5 watts, which is what the iPhone X iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are confirmed for. On the other hand, the Apple Watch just helps to charge up to 5 watts, which is as much as its charging base transfers.
