New Apple device set to launch this year (and it's not what we were expecting)

In a rare moment of defeat for Apple, the company announced last year that AirPower, its now infamous wireless charging pad (below), was officially cancelled. Unable to make the 3-in1 charging system work, the company decided to kill the project. But if new leaks are to be believed, AirPower could be coming back from the dead – and unexpectedly soon.

According to a well-known Apple leaker, not one but two versions of AirPower are imminent. The good news is that AirPower could be arriving as soon as next month. The bad news is that it isn't exactly the version of AirPower we were expecting (and it may not even be worthy of our best wireless chargers list).
