Insider Sonny Dickson (Sonny Dickson) has released a report which explained the delay in the release station of the wireless charging Apple AirPower and the recent removal of all the device information from the company website.
Apple engineers found several problems in the design of AirPower. Including significant overheating of the pad, which leads to performance degradation and errors in the chip with a stripped-down version of iOS, which controls the process.
The software responsible for the device connection also works properly. One of the «chips» AirPower is the ability to view the status of charge all rechargeable devices with the iPhone. With this, it difficulties arose.
A function to simultaneously charge up to three devices — another advertised feature of AirPower. Dixon says about 21-24 coils power supply, is positioned inside the charging station Apple, which allow the user to place iPhone, watch and AirPods anywhere on the court.

This year, Apple switched to Intel modems because of disagreements with Qualcomm, which supplied the Hexagon DSP of the iPhone. Other Apple smart phones also used the Intel products. However, if the earlier firmware modems Intel for iPhone contain the code for ARM architecture, the new smartphones, as it was found out That due to the disassembly procedure, you use the software for x86.
Interestingly, before the release of the first iPhone in 2007, Apple offered Intel to develop a mobile chip for the new smartphone. However, the manufacturer of the processors felt that Apple will not be able to sell as many iPhone, so development costs were justified. In the end, the iPhone 2G came out with a chip from Samsung, and later the company switched to their own decisions.
