The rumors are good, but not necessarily reliable.
According to Taiwan's DIGITIMES, apple is considering tying airpods to new iPhones in 2020.
"Smartphone makers, including apple, Samsung and Xiaomi, hope to bundle their new models with their own TWS headphones next year," the report quoted unnamed industry sources as saying TWS is a real wireless stereo headset, including airpods and Samsung's Galaxy buses.
Apple has already included a basic wired earpods with a lightning interface in the iPhone's box, which has been going on for years. The headset costs less to make and is officially priced at just $29. As an independent product category of apple, the sales volume of airpods is very considerable, especially in this year's second generation of airpods and airpods Pro Hair, which has created remarkable market achievements for apple.
The cost of airpods is high, as is the case for TWS earphones of other brands. Bundling them with flagship phones is certainly a great benefit for consumers, but it is not realistic for manufacturers unless price adjustment is made for the same bundle.
DIGITIMES' news is not necessarily credible, but now earpods should be eliminated. In addition, it is unlikely that iPhone prices will fall. Users have more products to choose in the 5g burst period, and airpods and iPhones bundled together will surely increase the sales volume of iPhones, especially those mobile phone manufacturers targeting market share. However, Apple's current strategy is still to take unit profit, so we need more information to confirm this rumor.
