According to the supply chain source, Chinese manufacturer Luxshare Precision has commenced AirPower production, with release slated sometime soon.

The news comes after renowned Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, reported in October that the AirPower would launch Q1Y19.

First unveiled in 2017, some commentators claim AirPower delays stemmed from production difficulties.

The device was debuted shortly after the iPhone X launch, with released scheduled for 2018.
