AirPods with USB-C charging will be announced at Apple’s event next month, a Bloomberg report said on Tuesday.
It’s unclear if the iPhone maker will unveil a new generation of AirPods – Bloomberg described them as “updated AirPods” – or if it will simply add USB-C charging ports to the existing model of its headphones. .
The report aligns with rumors that sprung up as early as March after Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, a highly respected industry watcher, said USB-C compatible AirPods would likely be available this year.
Almost all Apple-owned Beats headphones now also have USB-C ports.
Apple sent out invitations for its annual device event on September 12 on Tuesday, where we expect to see four models from the iPhone 15 lineup announced.
Apple’s Wonderlust event could also see announcements for services such as Music, TV Plus, Fitness and iCloud, as well as another preview of the upcoming AR/VR headset, the Apple Vision Pro.
The $3,499 Vision Pro headset was unveiled at WWDC in June and will start selling next year.
