Apple released a fresh beta version of iOS 12 today, and with it came an apparent look at the next AirPods case, as first spotted by 9to5Mac.

The case might also support wireless charging, and we’re probably going to hear about it during Apple’s annual fall hardware event, so prepare yourself accordingly. Now, get ready for a zoom.

Behold the green dot and what might be Apple’s new AirPods charging case. It looks a lot like the old one, except, you know, with a green light.
