Apple has canceled its AirPower wireless charger release, citing the company’s difficulty in achieving their “high standards” for the product.

“After much effort, we’ve concluded AirPower will not achieve our high standards and we have cancelled the project. We apologize to those customers who were looking forward to this launch. We continue to believe that the future is wireless and are committed to push the wireless experience forward,” said Apple SVP of hardware engineering Dan Riccio in a statement.

The AirPower charging mat was first announced back in September 2017 during the company’s iPhone X event, when Apple unveiled AirPower wireless charging as a new way to charge the iPhone X. At that time, Apple said it would ship around 2018, but then the company was silent for a long time, almost 18 months.

Apple had promised very important features of the AirPower charging mat, including the ability to charge three devices at once (Apple Watch, AirPods headphones and an iPhone), unique technology with multiple coils that would let the charger work without having to find an exact place on the mat to charge, and a software overlay for the iPhone to display all three charging devices on the AirPower.
