At an Apple Event on September 12, 2017, Apple announced that wireless charging was coming to many of its devices including the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. Apple’s wireless charging system is called AirPower and can be used to charge all of your compatible devices. In this article, I’ll explain AirPower, a new technology that enables iPhone wireless charging.
What Is AirPower?
AirPower is the new wireless charging system for iPhone 8, iPhone X, Apple Watch Series 3, and AirPods with the wireless charging case. AirPower works by charging your devices when you place them on the thin AirPower mat. You can simultaneously charge three of your AirPower compatible devices and they can be placed anywhere on the mat.

When Will AirPower Be Available?
AirPower will not be released until 2018. In the meantime, you can wirelessly charge your iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone X using a Qi wireless charger. Mophie and Belkin have also designed new wireless chargers specifically for the iPhone X.
