AirPods 3 With Lightning-Only Charging Case

Joe Rossignol:

Pricing for the third-generation AirPods with a Lightning case is set at $169 in the United States, compared to $179 for the third-generation AirPods with a MagSafe case, so it seems like there is very limited value in choosing this new option.

It’s hard to believe Apple is adding a SKU with only a $10 difference. At first I thought maybe this was because they were discontinuing AirPods 2, but those are still available for $129. I’ve grown to like wireless charging, but if you don’t want it, why not save more money and get the AirPods 2, since the controls and case lid work better?
