Apple AirPower For Apple Watch, iPhone, And AirPods Produces Mixed Response

Apple just got into the wireless charging game last year with the release of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. And now, the Cupertino company is set to release the AirPower, a simple and flat wireless charging pad that can charge the iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods all at the same time. CNET hopes the AirPower will be officially announced this week.

"Now, Apple has another chance to share its vision for wireless charging at its Tuesday, March 27 event in Chicago. Although the event will center on education, we're hoping Apple uses the spotlight to pepper on some more details about products outside the classroom."

MacRumors is another site that claims the AirPower will be released in March. The comments after the article show that there are mixed feelings about Apple's first charging pad. Many think it's a cool gadget, but the $200 price tag is too high.

"If the price point is around $200, I can't justify the price point for a wireless charger for an iPhone X or 8 unless someone has the Series 3 Apple and the wireless AirPod charging battery case," says one commenter.

"Apple is reaching at $200.00. As a convenience item, i'm in at $75.00 to $100.00," claims another.

However, responses on Twitter are more positive.

"Apple's new low-cost 9.7-inch iPad may include support for the Apple Pencil, according to a new note to investors shared this morning by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo."

The iPad Pro is one of the most beloved tech products on Twitter.
