On August 10, renowned analyst Ming Chi Kuo announced his latest forecast on Twitter, stating that Apple will introduce USB-C charging for all AirPods by 2023 But this year's new AirPods Pro 2 charging case will probably still have the Lightning port.

If Kuo's predictions materialize, that would be a real letdown. Many people have been waiting for Apple to integrate USB-C, but it turns out that it won't happenMany netizens joked in the comments below, saying that Apple did not pay attention to users' demands and ignored users' experience for its own benefit.

Lei suspects that the reason behind this is similar to the fact that the iPhone 14 series didn't use Type-C. Since there's still a significant amount of Lightning in stock, Apple may want to use up that inventory while moving to USB-C. According to previous leaks, the iPhone 15 May have an L port for the standard version and a C port for the Pro version.

In this way, the reason why AirPods Pro 2 still use Lightning port is easy to understand. For a shrewd businessman like Apple, inventory clearance is an eternal topic. For models like iPhone SE, the inventory of old molds is basically cleared.

It's also worth noting that Apple won't officially announce any hardware changes to the AirPods. The AirPods Pro, for example, is said to have been made by a different supplier for the last two years and quietly includes MagSafe wireless charging hardware, which will make many early Buy early enjoy early.Ray thinks Apple will also offer USB-C ports to future AirPods without telling them.

In Lei's opinion, it is only a matter of time before Apple can unify the C port ecology, which is mainly affected by the new regulations in various countries that force the use of Type-C interface. If Lightning is continued to be forcibly adopted, it is likely to face the danger of being banned from sale. Kuo has said that Apple will include USB-C on all AirPods, so those with port requirements will have to wait
