According to a latest news from researcher Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple could be looking to altogether mislay a connected EarPods from a arriving iPhone 12 sell package.
This pierce would no doubt be an nuisance for many buyers, as many people default to their in-box earbuds for song and hands-free talking.
However such a pierce will also positively lead to a boost of a AirPods’ sales, that ties-in easily with Kuo’s progressing news that Apple won’t betray new AirPods nor AirPods Pro this year.
Apple bundles EarPods (costing $29 on their own) with a iPhones and adult until a iPhone XS/XR in 2018 also bundled a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter (worth $10). Since a iPhone 11 array a Lightning to 3.5mm dongle is no longer bundled in a iPhone sell package.
Some sources have suggested that Apple might offer some arrange of iPhone and AirPod gold in a future. Removing a connected EarPods from a sell box wouldn’t harm such an offer.
