AirPods Pro 2023

Joe Rossignol:

In addition to the iPhone 15 models getting a USB-C port, Apple today announced that the second-generation AirPods Pro are now available to order with a USB-C charging case for $249, and the wired EarPods now come in a USB-C version as well.

Tim Hardwick:

Apple’s decision not to offer the USB-C case as a separate purchase is likely a marketing one related to the fact that the updated second-generation AirPods Pro feature improved IP54-rated dust resistance, and will support up to 4 hours of lossless audio with ultra-low latency when connected to the Apple Vision Pro headset launching in early 2024.

They are still calling it “AirPods Pro (2nd generation).”

Typo? The keys are right next to each other.

Are they taking tips from the USB-IF now? What the hell is with the shell game of “well some of this identically named product have this fancy new feature & will work and some won’t”?

And before you say “but these are named ‘with USB-C case’”, nobody except us tech nerds are going to notice that.
