Apple today launched the second-generation AirPods Pro equipped with a USB-C interface charging box, but the company does not sell this new USB-C interface charging box separately.
Apple’s decision not to sell the USB-C charging case separately may have something to do with marketing strategy, as the updated second-generation AirPods Pro offers better IP54-rated dust resistance and supports lossless audio and ultra-low latency when connected to the Apple Vision Pro headset, which will go on sale early next year.
For those who already own the second-generation AirPods Pro using the Lightning port and are planning to upgrade to the iPhone 15, the inability to purchase a separate USB-C charging case may be an annoyance. iPhone 15 is Apple’s first phone to feature a USB-C port, and those who want to charge all of their Apple devices with a single cable or be prepared for Apple Vision Pro compatibility may want to purchase a USB-C charging case. Those who want to charge all their Apple devices with one cable or be prepared for Apple Vision Pro compatibility will have to spend RMB 1,899 on a pair of the new AirPods Pro 2.
