Gurman recently updated his Power On newsletter article to say that Apple is moving forward with a shift from Lightning to USB-C ports for accessories and other digital products beyond the iPhone 15 handset.
Gurman has previously said that Apple will announce the AirPods Pro headphones with USB-C ports at its Curiosity Up event next Wednesday at 1 a.m. There will be no changes to the specs other than the port.
Gurman said in the update that Apple will continue to promote the port migration of the AirPods series of products, the standard version of the AirPods and AirPods Max headphones as soon as next year also changed.
Foreign technology media The Verge point of view, Apple chose to delay updating the port of the standard AirPods and AirPods Max, meaning that the above two products will be more thoroughly updated.
Apple released the third generation of AirPods has been close to 2 years, while the AirPods Max release time is even earlier, If Apple just changed Lightning to USB-C, there is not much significance.
