After reporting Apple had been planning a spring event to launch AirPower alongside the AirPods 2, reliable leaker OnLeaks tweeted that Apple will introduce the wireless charging case for AirPods in the spring, and wait until the fall for AirPods 2. Here’s everything we know so far.

Notable leaker OnLeaks cited a “yet unconfirmed but seemingly reliable source” in his tweet. Although he has a good track record when it comes to accuracies, most recently accurately reporting the design of the 2018 iPad Pro, all rumors and leaks should be taken with a grain of salt.

OnLeaks believes that Apple will instead unveil the wireless charging case for the current AirPods alongside the AirPower mat. Early rumors pointed Apple has had plans since September 2017 to ship AirPods with the wireless charging case and then selling an optional $69 accessory for existing AirPods.

Part of the reason for Apple delaying both of the products is due to issues with AirPower early on. They wanted both accessories to compliment each other as it made no sense to release the charging case without AirPower.
