Everytime Apple launches a new product, it's obviously the most memed and joked about thing. But, this time Apple made themselves a target for memes without even launching anything, actually basically by cancelling a lunch.
Back in 2017, Apple announced AirPower, a product that was supposed to charge iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods simultaneously. Well, sounds a little over ambitious and turns out it was since the wireless charging map has been cancelled by Apple.
“After much effort, we've concluded AirPower will not achieve our high standards and we have cancelled the project," Dan Riccio, Senior Vice President of Hardware Engineering at Apple, told TechCrunch.
He also, added, "We apologise to those customers who were looking forward to this launch. We continue to believe that the future is wireless and are committed to push the wireless experience forward.”
Well, people don't need to think even twice to make fun of Apple - through their Apple devices, ironically - and that's what happened as soon as the AirPower news came out.

I feel like canceling AirPower is a very elaborate prank and @tim_cook will post a video on Monday, screaming 'April fools!'— Matt Hallmann ð (@MattHallmann) March 30, 2019
