With this 12 months’s iPhone 15 reportedly switching from Lightning port to USB-C, Apple might want to replace a number of of its equipment. Since most iPad and Mac fashions already depend on the USB-C commonplace, a minimum of one product will want a tweak: Apple’s wired EarPods.
The final time Apple up to date the EarPods was on the iPhone 7 launch when the corporate eliminated the headphone jack and added a Lightning port to each the wired earbuds and the iPhone itself. Now that the corporate reportedly plans to ditch the Lightning port to USB-C, it is smart if Apple additionally tweaks the present EarPods to assist USB-C.
The knowledge that Apple is already mass producing these new earbuds comes from Twitter person ShrimpApplePro, who has a very good monitor of Apple leaks. He says, “USB-C MFI cables and EarPods are in mass manufacturing for some time is the perfect proof that it’s occurring,” by replying to a tweet.
Whereas it doesn’t appear Apple will make extra modifications to the EarPods, that would really be a very good alternative for the corporate to revamp its wired earbuds, as they’ve been fairly widespread amongst Gen Z.
By the start of the month, I wrote an opinion piece on why Apple should release new EarPods models. Though I’m nonetheless very a lot in love with AirPods, having EarPods typically simply makes issues simpler. I can pay attention to my environment whereas listening to a tune, it’s simpler to show the quantity up or down, they usually’re manner higher when speaking about mic capabilities – for this reason there are tens of millions of TikToks of individuals holding the EarPods microphone near their mouth as a substitute of carrying AirPods.
A couple of years in the past, The Wall Street Journal wrote an article about this product’s retro vibes and that each one the “cool youngsters” have been carrying them once more. Apparently sufficient, whereas the article was printed through the pandemic, it nonetheless holds true virtually three years later.
The iPhone 15 is predicted to be introduced and launched in September – which is also the identical for brand spanking new USB-C EarPods.
