The AirPods Pro was unveiled by Apple on Monday, October 28, 2019. The earphones were on sale right away, and on October 31st, buyers started receiving their orders.
Later, in December 2020 and October 2021, respectively, Apple released the AirPods Max and the third-generation AirPods. The 2019 Mac Pro, which has been in production for 957 days as of this writing, is the oldest current-generation Apple product still in production after the iPod touch, which was discontinued earlier this year and is now 1,153 days old.
AirPods 4 Will Be Released In 2023
According to reports, Apple already has plans to include USB-C in all iPads this year and the iPhone in 2019. You can now add another Apple product to the list since, according to an expert, USB-C charging will be available for AirPods starting in 2023.
So, the AP Pro, which is anticipated later this year, will continue to use the Lightning connector. AP 4 will not be available until at least next year.
However, if supply chain expert Ming-Chi Kuo is right, when the AP 4 do finally go on sale, they will come with a USB-C charging case. The iPhone 15 is anticipated to use USB-C next year. That is earlier than the 2024 deadline set by the European Union for makers of mobile phones to switch to the USB-C standard charging connection.
Apple will not stop there, in Kuo’s opinion. He anticipated that every other Lightning port-equipped product will transition to USB-C back in May.
The Magic Mouse, Keyboard, Trackpad, the MagSafe Battery, and all AirPod versions are included in that list. We are impatient. Seriously. It is inconvenient to have to carry Lightning, USB-C, USB-A, and micro-USB cords. These days, even our power tools recharge via USB-C. Apple must take action in order to stay competitive.
