Apple may bundle free Airpods with the iPhone 12

The upcoming iPhone 2020 has been a part of numerous discussions over the last couple of weeks.

Apple is considering bundling AirPods with new iPhone models in 2020, according to hit-or-miss Taiwanese publication DigiTimes. Well, we now have yet another information on the devices. Furthermore, the report suggests other major manufacturers such as Samsung and Xiaomi might also follow the same trend next year. TWS, for those unaware, refers to truly wireless stereo and it's the newest and probably the hottest category of earbuds at the moment. That is considering Apple does not end up increasing the price of the iPhone 2020. That is highly unlikely of Apple suggesting that you should take this report with a pinch of salt.

Apple has included basic, wired EarPods with a Lightning connector in the box with iPhones for several years. Meanwhile, demand for Apple's AirPods skyrocketed, and while more cynical onlookers blamed that on the demise of the 3.5mm headphone port encouraging people to go wireless, it seems more likely that the AirPods were just that attractive of a solution by themselves. This means that the earphones should cost even lesser for the company to manufacture.

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. It's hard to imagine Apple including such a costly accessory in the box with new iPhones next year without raising the price of the iPhones overall... not to mention that DigiTimes doesn't have a stellar track record with Apple rumors either.
