The Apple AirPods are one of the best-selling Truly Wireless Earphones in the market today. Now, according to a new report by DigiTimes, Apple is planning to bundle AirPods with the upcoming iPhone 2020 models. The report also mentions Samsung and Xiaomi are also planning on doing the same.
The reports cites industry sources behind the scoop, and considering the patchy reputation of the publication in predicting developments, it’s better to take this report with a pinch of salt given the high asking price of AirPods.
Apple sells the AirPods for more than Rs 10,00 and it’s difficult to imagine the company simply ditching a major source of revenue and bundling the product with the iPhones of the future. But then again, Apple introduced the AirPods Pro a few weeks back which has been selling out everywhere and Apple has already decided to increase production.
If the AirPods Pro becomes Apple’s premium play, the AirPods can indeed come bundled with the 2020 iPhones. You can surely expect the price of iPhones to shoot up even more, if that’s the case. Apple also might look to modernise the iPhone packaging. So far, Apple has been bundling Lightning EarPods with every new iPhone and bundling AirPods could be a way to catch up with changing times.
