Very strange cases: the USB Type-C is coming to AirPods better than Lightning
I don’t think you should be talking about the strange attitude of Apple to the connectors. On the one hand, Apple likes USB Type-C, and the company has made great efforts to improve this standard. On the other hand, in its portable devices the company uses its proprietary Lightning connector. One can only guess why Apple doesn’t want to come to a single standard, but it is worth noting that the solutions are hard.
Apparently, the company torn in doubt when you have to decide what connector to equip a particular product. To this conclusion came from those who already managed to purchase a new AirPods headphones and looked to Jack for charging their case.
The hole is designed for cable USB Type-C. It would be great came. As for the Lightning cable, though he is not in his place. See for yourself.
Apple initially created the AirPods that were supposed to be charged via the USB Type-C or Apple-just lazy. Of course, the headphones charge using the Lightning cable for charging you will find in the box with the headphones. This seems logical since the iPhone is charged via the Lightning, and AirPods created primarily to work with iPhone.
