Charge your iPhone, AirPods and Apple Watch simultaneously and cut down on cable clutter with $70 off the PowerUp 3-in-1 charging station from Aduro. It uses speedy Qi wireless charging technology and ships with an included power adapter and charging cable.
Apple’s AirPods 3, the third iteration of its standard issue wireless earbuds, could make their debut in September alongside the iPhone, Digitimes reported Friday.
According to the report, the new AirPods — which are rumored to receive a redesign in line with the AirPods Pro, minus the active noise cancelling feature — will “remain price-friendly.” The current AirPods launched in March 2019 at $159 with standard charging case or $199 with wireless charging case.
