Wireless AT&T Charger To Charge iPhone And Apple Watch Together

  • AT&T Power Drum

On top of that, Apple went very quiet about AirPower, not responding to questions about it, and went as far as to trying to erase all traces of it from its website following the iPhone XS launch in September of a year ago.

While Apple's AirPower is nowhere in sight, we have seen quite a few Qi wireless chargers hit the market that can charge the Apple Watch and an iPhone simultaneously. The Power Drum's Qi charger, the topmost part, supports output of up to 10W, although it's worth noting that the iPhone is limited to 7.5W. But AT&T's Power Drum seems like it is going to be one of the better ones.

The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) and the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) has just given a regulatory approval to an upcoming battery powered bank and wireless charger that goes by the name AT&T power drum. AT&T Power Drum Compatibility Oddly enough, the filings don't mention the Apple Watch Series 4 as a supported device. Sure it could, but my guess is that if Apple has gone as far as to wipe it from its website, it will be a rebooted product, possibly coinciding with new hardware (if Apple unified its charging protocols for different devices, that would go a long way to making AirPower easier to pull off).

The minimum wage is increasing in these 21 states
Some cities in California, Santa Fe in New Mexico, and the whole state of Nevada, are planning minimum wage increases on July 1. Businesses may place a higher value on experienced workers, making it more challenging for entry-level employees to find jobs.

Famed Apple writer John Gruber, at that time, suggested that the AirPower was facing overheating problems and may have been "scrubbed" that means AirPower was getting too hot while trying to charge three devices at the same time, the CNBC report added. The carrier may have started developing the device when USB Type-C ports weren't so widely used. The document also lists the price of the gadget at $99.99. A release date is unavailable at the moment.
