From iPad to iPhone: Everything Apple will launch next year

DigiTimes: Apple Considering Bundling AirPods With 2020 iPhones

A recent rumour is suggesting that Apple may be planning on bundling its 2020 iPhones with a pair of its wireless AirPods. TWS, for those unaware, refers to truly wireless stereo and it's the newest and probably the hottest category of earbuds at the moment.

Considering that AirPods are rather expensive, it will surely be the lower end AirPods which start at $159. What's more, Apple AirPods are much popular now and the company might not want to give it out for free since users are ready to pay for it.

Airpods are expected to be one of the most popular gifts this holiday season, with Apple reportedly having to double production, but if a new rumour is true every iPhone 12 buyer next year will be getting one for free.

This led to no small amount of speculation that Apple could someday look to include AirPods in the box with newer iPhones, particularly higher-end models, but of course that never happened at the time. Those earphones likely cost Apple very little to manufacture, retailing for just $29 on its website. The AirPods already sells at a starting price of RM699 for its non-wireless charging variant, while the variant with the wireless charging case retails for a steep RM879. Well, we now have yet another information on the devices.

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.
