Now a Polish retailer has published an online listing for AirPower which could give us a clue about how much we’ll have to pay for the special charging pad.
AirPower will only work with iPhone 8 / 8 Plus / X, Apple Watch Series 3, and an upcoming version of the AirPods charging case, but Apple says it will help the Qi standard adopt multi-device charging support in the future.
Iit’s likely a placeholder listing from the Polish retailer who likely wouldn’t have inside knowledge of how Apple plans to price its unreleased product, but the roughly $200 price point wouldn’t be totally surprising. AirPower will be a premium but optional accessory so a more expensive price tag might be announced.
$200 for AirPower would certainly make the $159 AirPods look like a bargain, however, although existing AirPods owners will need to buy a new charging case that supports wireless charging to be compatible.
