Whether you want to surprise your significant other with tech gadgets and accessories or just looking for an original gift, you've come to the right place.

AirPods Pro with USB-C

You probably already know about the iPhone 15 to USB-C transition that so many have been waiting for and which will be reportedly embodied in the new iPhone 15 models, which will be released on September 12, 2023, along with a new Watch Series 9 and a second-gen Watch Ultra. According to some rumours, Cupertino corporation is also expected to unveil a new version of the AirPods Pro with a USB-C charging case at its September event. Apparently, the headphones themselves will not change significantly, and the appearance of USB-C could be the only innovation - if the information about USB is eventually confirmed. We do not rule out that, in addition to the complete set, the charging case will be sold separately from the headphones, so owners of previous models of these headphones will not have to spend money on brand new AirPods Pro. You will find all the details of the upcoming presentation of new Apple gadgets in our special article.
