Apple's New Air Pods September 14 2017
During Tuesday's event, Apple revealed that the rumored new version of its AirPods headphones were not in fact the "AirPods 2 but a new fancy charging case that users will be able to purchase as a replacement for their current charging cases No release date or price was mentioned, but information reportedly sourced from Apple Switzerland suggests a December launch date for the new AirPods wireless charging case, which will cost $69.
the AirPods charging case is $69, so a similar price point for the wireless charging version does make some sense. The only design change made to the new charging case is the placement of the LED battery indicator light, which has migrated from the inside of the case to the outside on the front. This way, when users place the case down on a Qi-compatible charging pad, they'll be able to see the battery level of the AirPods' case without needing to open the top In regards to the new AirPods wireless charging case, it's still unclear if Apple will offer a version that also includes the AirPods themselves at the typical $159 price tag.
