The rumors are good, but not necessarily reliable.
According to DIGITIMES, apple is considering tying airpods to new iPhones in 2020.
The report quoted industry insiders who declined to be named as saying:
Apple already has a basic wired earpods with lightning in the iPhone box, which has lasted for several 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 airpodspro, which has created remarkable market achievements for apple.
The cost of airpods is high, as are other brands of TWS earphones,Bundling them with flagship phones is certainly a great benefit for consumers, but it's not realistic for manufacturers unless price adjustments are made for the same bundle.
DIGITIMES' news is not necessarily credible,But now that earpods should be eliminated, it's unlikely to expect iPhone prices to fallIn the 5g burst, users have more products to choose from, and airpods bundled with iPhones will definitely increase the sales 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.
