Apple Considering Puting AirPods in The Box With 2020 iPhones

Apple Considering Puting AirPods in The Box With 2020 iPhones

AirPods are, by a very long margin, Apple's fastest growing business and its most profitable line.

The AirPods 2 (2019) with the standard (non-wireless) Charging Case are now just £128.97 at Laptops Direct.

However, technology keeps evolving and people want more and more features for the money they pay, which might motivate Apple to make a step forward and include something more modern than the traditional EarPods that they bundled with iPhones for years now.

A report in Taiwanese publication DigiTimes suggests that Apple is looking to bundle AirPods with the next iPhone in 2020. "TWS" or "truly wireless stereo" earphones are earphones like Apple's AirPods and Samsung's Galaxy Buds.

Smartphone vendors including Apple, Samsung, and Xiaomi are looking to bundle their new models with TWS earbuds next year. However, there are concerns over it as well because some analysts are worrying that the company might end up increasing the price of the iPhone 2020 which will be highly unlikely for the customers.

BGR notes however that Digitimes does not exactly have the best reputation when it comes to Apple's future products, but given that Apple killed the headphone jack it is probably about time that Apple moves away from their proprietary wired headphones to a truly wireless solution for buyers right in the box. It conveys that the earphones should cost even lesser for the company to manufacture.

Will Apple increase the price of the iPhone next year as it starts to bundle AirPods along with the iPhone?

We're pretty skeptical about this report due to the price of AirPods, which start at $159.

If this were to happen, however, and that's a big IF, it's nearly certain that only Apple's higher-end "Pro" iPhone models would see wireless earbuds included, with the standard "iPhone 12" likely including the same EarPods that we find in the boxes today. You still have one more chance to grab them at a discount today.
