Apple AirPods Pro 2 with USB-C are coming later this year

Apple recently uploaded the first release candidate for iOS 16.4 for developers. The new iOS version also includes references to new AirPods with model code A3048 and a new AirPods charging case with model code A2968. According to well-known Apple analyst Ming Chi-Kuo, these are likely the USB-C version of the AirPods Pro 2, which launched last year with a Lightning port. Sales are scheduled to start between Q2 and Q3 2023, i.e. in a few months.

Kuo has not revealed any further information about the USB-C version of the Apple AirPods Pro 2. And it is still unclear whether the changes to the buds only affect the charging case with USB-C. Other hardware updates may also come.

Apple is also expected to launch the iPhone 15 series with USB-C ports instead of the Lightning connector this year. According to Kuo, however, there are no USB-C plans for the regular AirPods 2 and AirPods 3. This would make the AirPods Pro 2 the first Apple headphones to switch to the USB-C connector under upcoming EU laws.
