What a huge missed opportunity it was to put USB-C in the new AirPods Pro.

And so it begins. I suppose at some point in 2025 or so I'll have cycled out most of my Lightning stuff. I'll probably still somehow own a couple things that use Micro USB, which is truly the cockroach of the USB world.

Should have put a space for an AirTag. I really hope USB-C is next for the iPhone line up. Apple is getting there slowly!
