Apple has already announced new iPads and new iMacs this week. And now, to continue this onslaught of updated hardware, the second generation of AirPods has just been released, and with them (or their originals) a wireless charging case.

A New Case for Wireless Charging Offers More Comfort
Wireless charging is one of the features you can do without when you do not have it. And once you have it, you will not go back. The good news is that Apple has released a wireless charging case for AirPods along with the hardware update. The better news is that they are compatible with the previous generation AirPods.
Not surprisingly, the wireless charging case uses the Qi standard and works with all the Qi charging pads you have now. What you will not hear is AirPower, which is an unspoken topic at Apple. If you already have AirPods, you can purchase the wireless case separately for $ 79.
If you have new AirPods on the market, you can buy the new hardware with either a standard case for $ 159 or the wireless charger for $ 199. If you do not already have AirPods and feel that you want a wireless charging case, it makes the most sense to buy them in advance, as there is a $ 40 difference if you buy them as a bundle or buy them separately.
That is unless you would prefer to buy one of several cheaper alternatives that we have recommended in the past.
