Sometimes with Apple, what’s old becomes new again. Designs and product names are at times revisited as the inspiration for new products. AirPods and HomePods, for example, play off the strong brand awareness for the iPod.

According to a filed patent, Apple may take things a step further with the iPod inspiration, creating an AirPods case that looks and works a lot like a modern iPod nano.

Ever since debuting the first AirPods in 2016, Apple has regularly made minor updates and improvements to the various cases that hold its wireless earbuds. Later iterations added support for wireless charging, a built-in speaker, USB-C, Find My tracking, and more.

Back in September 2022 Apple first filed a patent that describes an AirPods case with a built-in touch display. According to the patent’s own examples, this display could be used for:

  • controlling audio playback
  • activating and interacting with Siri
  • receiving and responding to iMessages
  • checking the weather forecast
  • listening to audiobooks
