iPhone 2020 bundled with the AirPods? Apple is thinking
According to a new report from DigiTimes (via MacRumors), Apple is planning to create a bundle with its AirPods standard and the line iPhone 2020.
The report states that “the smartphone manufacturers including Apple, Samsung and Xiaomi are looking to bundle their new models of smartphone with the earbuds TWS next year“, citing sources in the industry without a name. The earphones “TWS” or “truly wireless” include the AirPods (original or second-generation) and the Samsung Galaxy Buds.
We are rather skeptical of this report because of the price of the AirPods, which start from € 179. It is hard to imagine that Apple includes an accessory so expensive in the package together with the new iPhone next year without increasing the price.
The AirPods are also incredibly popular, so it is difficult to understand what pushes Apple to include its popular wireless headset along with the iPhone of 2020, when millions of customers are clearly happy to purchase them separately. In fact, the new AirPods Pro are in such demand that Apple is doubling the production.
Apple has included the new EarPods base wired with a Lightning connector in the box with the iPhone for several years. These earphones probably cost very little to Apple for the production, while on his web site only cost € 29.
Although this item seems questionable for now, it is certainly possible that Apple may feel simply that it is time to include something a little more modern of EarPods with his iPhone. It is said that the AirPods are the headsets truly wireless most sold in the world, and put them together with the iPhone would extend that advantage.
If this were to happen, immagineremmo that the AirPods were bundled only with iPhone models 12 Pro high-end.
What do you think? Do you think that Apple will include the AirPods in the package of the iPhone in 2020? Let us know in the comments!
