Washington [US]Oct 10 (ANI): US tech giant Apple is preparing to adopt USB-C charging in its lineup of AirPods and Mac accessories within the next two years.
According to The Verge, a report by Mark Gurman of Bloomberg suggests this company’s change of its lighting cables. It comes as the European Union seeks to mandate USB-C charging on new smartphones, tablets and headsets launched in the region by the end of 2024.

While the legislation has yet to become law, it received approval from the European Parliament last week.
Gurman believes that to comply with the rules, Apple could bring USB-C to AirPods, AirPods Pro, and next-gen AirPods by 2024.

Meanwhile, Mac accessories including the Magic Mouse, Magic Keyboard, and Magic Trackpad could switch to USB-C as early as next year.
With an update for the new iMac and Mac Pro coming next year, their release typically “coincides with accessory updates,” The Verge reported.
Gurman says “it’s a safe bet those accessories will transition to USB-C in their next incarnation.” Similarly, he believes that Apple will change its AirPods before the EU legislation takes effect.
Earlier this year, a report from Gurman suggested that Apple has already started testing USB-C charging on its iPhones, but it probably won’t come to devices until 2023 “at the earliest.”
Gurman reiterates this belief in this most recent Power On newsletter, adding once again that he thinks Apple will add a USB-C charging port to the iPhone 15, as well as the entry-level iPad due later this year. . .
According to The Verge, even if Apple does transition to using USB-C, Gurman expects its presence in Apple devices to be short-lived, as he says Apple will eventually bring inductive charging to the iPhone and iPad to circumvent the legislation. , as it does not apply to devices that do not support wired charging.
