Apple may begin introducing standard USB-C charging technology on its AirPods. but probably on the next future models of the company.
The USB-C theme on Apple devices has been going on for some time, and most of us know very well that the iPhone has yet to make this long-awaited transition, but it’s important to note that the iPhone isn’t the only one. Apple device that needs to recover. In fact, all AirPods models have offered charging via a Lightning port to date.
Well, today, one of the most renowned tech analysts, Ming-Chi Kuo , predicted that Apple will release USB-C cases for all the AirPods headphones it sells, but that said, however, the analyst says he still expects the alleged AirPods. Pro 2 that are expected to launch this year are equipped with a Lightning charging port.
What is not very clear from this Tweet is whether Apple will sell these new USB-C equipped cases separately or simply include them in future product releases. It’s not exactly a whimsical scenario for the Cupertino-based tech giant to charge extra if you want one of these new cases, but it’s still more unlikely than anything else.
Furthermore, Kuo also says that 2023 will be the year we will see the iPhone itself , or the iPhone 15 to be exact, finally ditching the Lightning port for a USB-C, and that fits in well with the expiration of the. European Union for all technology manufacturers to have a common charger, which in this case is USB-C, with the aim of reducing electronic waste. Apple has time by the end of 2024, but it wouldn’t be wise to wait until the last minute to take action.
