A reference to the upcoming Wireless charging case for AirPods has been found on Apple's site.
We've been digging around on Apple's website, looking for any possible hints and leaks for the upcoming products, and have found some exciting information about the AirPods case.
On the AirPods page of Apple.com, under the stats about the battery, we've spotted a message about the wireless charging case for the AirPods. It says:
Optional wireless charging case coming in 2018.
This quote is next to an image of an iPhone X and AirPods case on the AirPower mat, which should also be coming in September with the new product releases.
Looking back on Wayback Machine, which allows you to view archived webpages, we can see this message was actually added sometime in early October last year. This means that when AirPower was delayed, it meant that the AirPods Wireless Charging case was too.
It seems that Apple is hinting small things to us, but this also hasn't been talked about because the AirPods page isn't as popular as other pages on the Apple website.
Expect the Wireless Charging Case, plus AirPower to be announced in September along with the other new products. This could mean there will be no updates to the AirPods, as this case seems to be compatible with the AirPods 1.
