Everything indicates that soon the expected AirPower charging mat will go on sale for so long.
The information on Twitter of the well-known “informer” Jon Prosser shows that the prototypes of the new AirPower charging mat are already tested by the company’s employees.
Prosser even received a photo of the new mat. You can see them below. The prototype’s code name is C68.
While working from home, engineers on Apple’s ’Sharing and Proximity’ team are receiving prototype units of something called “C68”.
They are being asked work on software communication between devices for a “future product” that has an A11 inside to “dynamically manage heat”. pic.twitter.com/q4UvnF4ksx

Jon claims that Apple solved all of the problems by installing the A11 Bionic chip in AirPower, which is used in the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X smartphones. Using the A11 Bionic chip allows you to control the energy supply to individual coils and solves the problem of overheating.
Apple will probably release a new generation of AirPower in the fall of 2020.
