Apple’s long-awaited wireless charging system for iPhones will soon enter mass production, according to reports.

The AirPower charging mat, which also works for the Apple Watch and AirPod headphones, was first unveiled in 2017 but has been beset by delays.

News the tech giant has finally overcome these issues comes from Hong Kong website ChargerLAB, which cited a source in the supply chain.

“AirPower is finally coming,” the site tweeted. “We just learned from credible source in supply chain that the manufacture Luxshare Precision has already started producing Apple AirPower wireless charging pad.”

The firm added: “Luxshare Precision is also the maker of Apple AirPods and USB-C cables.”

The wireless charging mat was widely anticipated to be rolled out at Apple’s iPhone launch last September but the event passed without a single mention of the oval-shaped device.

Apple has instead had to rely on third-party companies like Belkin to make charging stations for the iPhone X, iPhone Xs and other products with wireless charging capabilities.

The big selling point for Apple’s AirPower mat is its ability to charge up to three different products at the same time. More
