Possible rewrites: – Upcoming AirPods: AirPods Pro 2 could come with a USB-C connector – AirPods Pro 2 expected to ditch Lightning for USB-C charging – Rumor: AirPods Pro 2 might feature a USB-C port instead of Lightning

Apple recently launched the iOS 16.4 release candidate build for developers, which includes references to new earbuds: the Beats Studio+ and the AirPods. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the AirPods will finally be updated to USB-C, though not all models. The coding indicates two new model numbers: A3048 for a pair of AirPods, and A2968 for a new AirPods case. Kuo tweeted that these are likely the upcoming USB-C version of the AirPods Pro 2, with mass production set to start between the second and third quarters.
The transition could be beginning
Apple is reportedly planning to switch from Lightning ports to USB-C ports for iPhones with the iPhone 15 series this year. The company is also expected to switch most of its accessories to USB-C, including AirPods, although not all may undergo this transition. According to Kuo, there are currently no plans to bring USB-C to the vanilla AirPods. Therefore, the AirPods may not have USB-C until the fourth-generation version comes out. As of now, third-gen AirPods come with both the Lightning port and MagSafe compatibility.
Apple has introduced two updated versions of the AirPods charging cases in the past, with new hardware functionalities like MagSafe and wireless charging. Therefore, the rumors about a mid-cycle update of the second-generation AirPods Pro’s charging case, which features a USB-C port, are not surprising. Kuo has previously stated that upcoming iterations of AirPods will adopt USB-C for charging. He mentioned last year that not only AirPods but also other Apple accessories, including the Magic Keyboard, Magic Trackpad, and Magic Mouse, as well as the MagSafe Battery Pack for the iPhone, will transition to USB-C along with the new iPhone. There are rumors that the iPhone 15 series will drop the Lightning port in favor of the USB-C port to comply with EU legislation. According to rumors, the USB-C port will provide faster charging speeds, but this may only work with Apple MFi certified cables.
