For several months, the owners of AirPods have been discussing the timing of the headset, which will be equipped with a wireless charging case.
The mention of such is on the Apple site, but nothing is known about the release date.
A well-known author of the leaks, Ben Geskin, managed to get photos of the AirPods package, inside which is exactly the same wireless case. Photos he posted on Twitter.
There is something weird going on in the third picture. The MMEF2AM/A model number is of the first gen AirPods. This is either a fake leak or a photoshop. Not blaming you but maybe some error from your source’s side. pic.twitter.com/SkoVZEFlvs

If the pictures are reliable, then it is quite possible that Apple will very soon present a new case, for charging which you do not need to use a Lightning cable. It can happen at the October presentation.
However, Geskin is often mistaken and published photos may turn out to be another fake. Considering that he did not take the pictures, the author of the leak himself is inclined to believe that these are mounted photos. [ 9to5 ]
