mophie and InvisibleShield launch UV sanitizers for phones and more

Wireless charging has finally become more known and accepted in the mobile market but it's still far from the universally-available convenience we imagine it to be. There's definitely a lot of room for improvement and competition but most of those focus on high-wattage technologies on high-end phones.

Apple AirPower charging mat might still happen after all

Apple AirPower charging mat might still happen after all

Apple is a company that takes its products and its announcements very seriously. So seriously that when it cancels and already announced product, it is treated almost like a scandal or a tragedy or both.

Apple may be trying to redeem itself and is apparently taking another stab at the accessory, but this time with one important and powerful change.
