Apple may roll out a new “charging case” for its AirPods that can “wirelessly charge” iPhones as well, the media reported.

“The product could be available as soon as the end of this year, however, the schedule is still subject to change,” Nikkei Asian Review reported, quoting an industry source familiar with the plan.

The development would add to Apple’s much-anticipated “AirPower wireless charging mat” that was unveiled last year.

“Recent reports have suggested a September release of Apple’s ‘AirPower charging pad’ , which is around the time Apple typically announces its latest iPhone models each year,” Engadget reported recently.

The iPhone maker had previously mentioned that it would be working on a “wireless charging case” for “AirPods” that could also be topped up with the “AirPower pad”, though it gave no further details.

Apple on Wednesday unveiled an all-new 16-inch MacBook Pro with up to 80 per cent faster performance for Rs 199,900.

Featuring a 16-inch Retina Display, latest 8-core processors, up to 64GB of memory, next-generation graphics with up to 8GB of VRAM and a new advanced thermal design, MacBook Pro is available through Apple Authorised Resellers and will come soon to stores around the world, the company said in a statement.

“With its brilliant 16-inch Retina display, 8-core processors, next-gen pro graphics, even better thermal design, new Magic Keyboard, six-speaker sound system, 100Wh battery, up to 8TB of storage and 64GB of fast memory, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is the world’s best pro notebook,” said Tom Boger, Apple’s senior director of Mac and iPad Product Marketing.

The new MacBook Pro doubles the SSD storage to 512GB and 1TB on standard configurations. And for the first time, MacBook Pro can be configured with a staggering 8TB of storage — the largest SSD ever in a notebook.

Featuring a new Magic Keyboard, the 16-inch MacBook Pro also includes a six-speaker sound system, longer battery life, Touch Bar, Touch ID, the Force Touch trackpad and the Apple T2 Security Chip.

Featuring a resolution of 3072×1920 and a higher pixel density of 226 ppi, the 16-inch Retina display delivers nearly 6 million pixels and an even more immersive front-of-screen experience.

Paired with GDDR6 video memory and with an 8GB VRAM option for the first time, pro users will be able to tackle GPU-intensive tasks faster than ever, said Apple.
