When Apple announced its AirPods 3 with MagSafe Charging Case earlier this week, the company also quietly updated its AirPods Pro with the same case, for the same price.
Some on the interwebs questioned if the MagSafe Charging Case was actually magnetic or not, but we now have confirmation from Apple customer Nikolaj Hansen-Turton (@nikolajht) the case is indeed magnetic, as reported by iMore.
Earlier on Wednesday morning, Hansen-Turton purchased the new AirPods Pro with MagSafe Charging Case from an Apple Store and shared hands-on photos. He shared a picture of the MagSafe Charging Case attached to a MagSafe dock, indeed proving “it’s definitely magnetic”.
These new AirPods Pro with MagSafe Charging Case also shipped with older firmware “3E751”.
According to Hansen-Turton, he purchased these through the Apple Store app in the United Kingdom under the in-store pick up option.
Existing AirPods Pro include a regular wireless charging case that can be charged with any Qi wireless charger.
