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 did not respond to Nikkei Asian Review’s request for comment,” the report added.

Last year, the Cupertino-based company had said that the iPhone 8 range and later models would have wireless charging capabilities. (IANS)

A lawsuit filed in a US court has accused Apple of making false claims about the screen sizes and pixel counts of the displays in its iPhone X series, CNET reported.

The suit filed on Friday in the District Court of Northern California alleges that the Cupertino, California-headquartered tech giant lied about the screen sizes of iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max devices by counting non-screen areas like the notch and corners.

The two plaintiffs who filed the suit are seeking class action status, according to the report.

The suit alleges that Apple is falsely marketing the new line of iPhones as “all screen”.

For example, the screen size of iPhone X is “only about 5.6875 inches”, and not 5.8 inches as claimed by Apple, the complaint stated.

Apple was sued over its products earlier also. A lawsuit filed in June alleged that the screen of Apple Watch has a tendency to “crack, shatter or detach from the body of the watch.” (IANS)
