The leaked Apple AirPods roadmap confirms big changes. As Bloomberg's Mark Gurman reports, Apple will try to better differentiate its AirPods line as new models are released over the next few years.

The company will phase out the second and third generation AirPods, and next fall will announce a new model. Apple plans to simultaneously release two sets of fourth-generation AirPods at a level lower than AirPods Pro, but with clearer differences between each other. They will get "a new design that looks like a mix of third-generation AirPods and Pro models" with short legs. The higher-end variant borrows AirPods Pro features such as noise cancellation and built-in speakers in the charging case for improved Find My support. However, none of the models are likely to include replaceable silicone nozzles.

The following AirPods will support USB-C charging. There is also a small update coming to AirPods Max, which will receive a USB-C port and other colors.
