A new leak claims to show the Apple AirPower working with an Apple Watch and AirPods. Published by Jon Prosser and other people on Discord, the 3-in-1 charging pad apparently includes a chip to prevent it from overheating and combusting.
Alex Alderson,

The AirPower has gained a lot of attention for what is just a wireless charger. Rumoured to be launching in March last year, Apple confirmed that it had cancelled the project because it could not achieve the company's "high standards". Almost a year to the day later, Jon Prosser announced to his fans that Apple had started prototyping the AirPower before publishing a grainy photo of a prototype a month later. Codenamed C68, Prosser also stated that the mat contained "an A11 inside" to manage internal temperatures. 

Now, Prosser claims to have published a higher resolution picture of the C68, complete with an example of it charging something. Prosser has gained popularity in recent months because of the veracity of his Apple leaks, including details about the iPhone SE (2020). People seem less convinced about these photos though, with some pointing out that the Apple Watch and AirPods pictured are only charging in the close-up image that Prosser published. Additionally, the charging pad is clearly connected to different charging cables, which has some people believe that they are not the same device. The photos are not exclusive to Prosser either, with one person claiming to have posted them on Discord to gain attention.

Prosser insists that he will prove that the photos are genuine, although he is yet to at the time of writing. Incidentally, there is no shortage of 3-in-1 wireless chargers available on retailers like Amazon.
