Apple is predicted to release its own branded wireless charging mat in the first half of 2020, according to noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, though the product may not be the AirPower stand-in users are hoping for.
Accessory maker Zagg is reportedly planning a new location agnostic wireless charging mat that makes "sweet spots" a thing of the past, technology Apple attempted to bring to market with its cancelled AirPower device.

Apple's AirPower charging mat might be on the verge of release, as an image on the company's second-generation AirPods retail box depicts a wireless charger with a design nearly identical to that of the long-delayed device.
Now that Apple has, presumably, gotten the big spring hardware announcements out of the way, it's clear that the March 25 event will be all about services. AppleInsider looks at what to expect during Apple's "Its show time" event.
A Twitter user has found a reference to Apple's so-far unreleased AirPower charging pad in the source code of the company's AirPods page. It's only in the Australian version of the site, but AppleInsider has also discovered an image in the same code.
