Date already confirmed
All four iPhone 15 models coming out next month are expected to feature a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port. Mark Gurman of Bloomberg reported that Apple also plans to announce updated AirPods with a case equipped with a USB-C connector.
Apple will introduce AirPods with a case equipped with a USB-C connector on September 12
The post doesn’t provide any further information about the updated AirPods, so it’s not clear if it refers to standard AirPods and/or AirPods Pro, but both models will eventually need to be updated with USB-C charging cases to comply with the new EU regulations.
It’s unclear if the updated AirPods will have any new features or changes beyond the USB-C case. The third generation AirPods were released in October 2021 and the second generation AirPods Pro were released in September 2022.
The Apple presentation is expected on September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater .
