USB-C AirPods Pro Coming Soon, Ming-Chi Kuo Says

Apple is set to release new AirPods Pro 2 with a USB-C connection before the end of the year, according to a report by a well-connected analyst.

Writing on Twitter, Ming-Chi Kuo said that a new USB-C version of the AirPods Pro 2 will begin mass shipments in the second or third quarter of 2023.

It appears that the AirPods Pro 2 will be the same as the previous model, with the only change being that there will be no Lightning port. The only change is the move to USB-C.

Apple is sure to move the iPhone 15 lineup to USB-C when it arrives later this year, with the EU forcing all phones and accessories to use the same connector. That’s why Apple is about to launch a new USB-C version of the AirPods Pro 2, but there’s no suggestion that new AirPods 2 or AirPods 3 are on the horizon. There is no mention of AirPods Max either.

It was previously reported that Apple could ship the upgraded AirPods Max by 2024, while a cheaper version of the base model AirPods has a similar release timeframe. Both will use USB-C for obvious reasons.

The EU has given companies until December 28, 2024 to move to USB-C, so Apple could refresh AirPods and AirPods Max before that date.
