Apple Can Bring USB-C Port For AirPods, Mac Accessories By 2024 (Expert’s Speculations)
As per media reports, the Cupertino based tech giant Apple will bring USB-C port to AirPods and Mac accessories by 2024.
The Timeline for Transition
As per Mark Gurman, by the year 2024, the company might introduce USB-C to its newest AirPods, AirPods Pro, and AirPods.
Whereas next year we can expect the Mac accessories like the Magic Mouse, Magic Keyboard, and Magic Trackpad may convert to USB-C.
He said that “It’s a safe bet that those accessories will move to USB-C in their next incarnation”.
Recently, the European Union has mandated all the smartphones, tablets, and headphones to have USB-C charging. Apple has been asked to move away from the Lightning ports.
The report said that Apple will replace its AirPods before the EU legislation takes effect.
USB Type-C As Standard Charging Port For Apple
As per the inventor of the iPod, Tony Fadell said that after the European Union passed a resolution on USB Type-C as standard charging port, Apple should include USB-C port in iPhones.
All of this started with a tweet, wherein a twitter user asked if the iPod would succeed if Apple was forced to utilise USB 1.0 rather than the fast FireWire technology.
To this comment, Fadell posted on Twitter “I can’t see a problem. The world has converged on USB-C. The physical and user limits have been hit. Next up is wireless per, not a diff physical connection. So I’m not too worried about this regulation. They’re simply forcing Apple to do the right thing. It’s overdue frankly”.
