Oh AirPower, Where Are You?


Why Apple's AirPower Wireless Charger Is Taking So Long to Make

Mark Gurman, writing for Bloomberg:

The AirPower charger is also more advanced than the current competition because it includes a custom Apple chip running a stripped down version of the iOS mobile operating system to conduct on-device power management and pairing with devices. Apple engineers have also been working to squash bugs related to the on-board firmware, according to the people familiar. They asked not to be identified discussing a product that hasn’t been released yet.

The company plans to produce the charger with Pegatron Corp., which also builds some iPhones, according to a person familiar with the arrangement.

Apple didn’t say when in 2018 it would release AirPower, but engineers hoped to launch the charger by June. The aim now is to put it on sale before or in September, according to one of the people. In recent months, some Apple engineers have ramped up testing of the device by using it as their charger at the office, another person said.

“Hopefully, Apple learns a lesson to only announce products that are for sure shipping soon or immediately after announcing,” said Ben Bajarin, an analyst at research firm Creative Strategies. Still, he sees little impact in the long-term because the AirPower product is part of a much larger strategy that will develop over years, not months or quarters.

Perhaps this is why they announced a year in advance what they did at WWDC for developers wishing to put their apps on the Mac?

Meet 'Daisy': Apple's New iPhone Recycling Robot

Daisy On the cusp of Earth Day 2018, Apple has unveiled Daisy, its latest recycling robot.  Daisy is an update to Liam, the original recycling robot that the company revealed back in 2016.

Daisy is also a recycled product of sorts

From Brian Heater, reporting for TechCrunch:

Daisy was developed in-house by Apple engineers, using some of Liam’s parts — a recycling of sorts. The industrial robot is able to disassemble nine different versions of the iPhone, sorting all of their reusable components in the process. In all, Daisy is capable of taking apart a full 200 iPhones in a given hour, proving a solid alternative to traditional methods that can destroy valuable components in the process. Any connection to HAL 3000, however, is surely coincidental. 

In addition to the unveiling of Daisy, Apple also announced a new program called GiveBack, which is an addition to its recycling program.  From now, until April 30, Apple is planning on making a donation to Conservation International for every device that a customer turns or trades in.

If a device is eligible, it will still qualify for either a gift card or an in store credit.

To top it off, there will also be a new Apple Watch challenge coming in time for Earth Day, encouraging people to get outside on Sunday and enjoy the planet.
