Apple May Not Bundle EarPods With The iPhone 12

Apple's new strategy would go through not include conventional wired earphones in iPhone 12 case.

Unfortunately, though, it seems like a delay in launch isn't the only thing Apple fans looking to upgrade to the new iPhone need to consider, as it has just been confirmed by respected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo that the iPhone 12 range is looking like it isn't going to deliver something out of the box. For the last couple of years, there has been some speculation that Apple would offer a bundle of iPhone and AirPods for a combined discount.

Vietnam has always been a hotbed for Apple's audio accessory production, with even older models like wired EarPods being produced domestically, and there appear to be no signs of slowing down. We have to keep in mind that Apple's wireless headphones are not cheap, that many users already have them, or that there are people who have several previous iPhone EarPods, among other factors.

Technology analyst Jon Prosser says that the AirPods X, wireless headphones for sports, are coming to the market in September or October at a price of about $ 200 (183 euros in exchange).

Apple has included compatible headphones within the box of new iPhones since 2007, and ceasing this would force consumers to use wireless headphones, or purchase a 3.5mm headphone adapter.

Previously, we have seen that even Android manufacturers halted the supply of headphones in the phone box. This will be the first time ever when Apple chose to stop giving earphones inside the box. "The Vietnamese officials even granted special permits for a key Apple ‌AirPods‌ assembler to help the company bring in engineers to the country for smooth production during lockdowns".

The company had delayed the launch of its new iPhone 12 by over a year into 2021 when the pandemic first began affecting tech companies across the globe. According to rumors, the smartphone line should arrive with support for 5G and renewed design.
