Apple’s AirPower Charging Mat Won’t Work with Older Apple Watches

By Josh Centers

Here’s some disappointing news from MacRumors about Apple’s promised AirPower charging mat, which will wirelessly charge the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, Apple Watch Series 3, and AirPods in a special charging case. Since the Apple Watch has always used inductive charging, there was hope that older models would also work with the AirPower mat. That turns out not to be true: the AirPower mat will support only the Apple Watch Series 3. Older models will have to stick with their existing chargers.
