One of the devices rumored to be renewed in September is the AirPods Pro. It has been speculated that the second generation will have more battery life, better design and even new functions. However, it seems that all of this may be in the background as it is likely, according to new rumors, that it will continue to come with the Lightning charging port. In mid-2022, we won’t have the USB-C standard that some Apple devices already use and it should not arrive before 2023.
The rumor was started by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has some definite news behind him. That’s why any news you comment on or post through your Twitter account should be treated seriously. On this occasion, what he tells us is that the AirPods Pro, second generation, they won’t come with the USB-C standard
Why doesn’t Apple already adapt this USB-C as it did, for example, in the iPad? Admittedly, you might not need that much speed for your download. But apart from the technical aspects, it would be necessary to see a little comfort of use. It’s not the same that you have different Apple devices with different chargers than with the same one. Moreover, the global trend is towards the unification of chargers. This way you save costs.
The thing is, Kuo says we won’t see this standard until 2023, so I don’t think there’s a technical reason why Apple won’t introduce it in September. there will be something else and I’m afraid it’s an economic problem, with which Apple will save several millions by continuing to use Lightning.
