Earlier this year, there were reports that the iPhone 12 series package will not include Apple’s wired headset EarPods. There is now a separate report that also hints at this, and also provides a reason that the company is trying to increase AirPods sales.
The previous report came from well-known Apple analyst Guo Mingji, and now the news comes from Wedbush analyst Dan Ives, who said: “Our verification found that wired EarPods are likely not to appear in the iPhone 12 package.”
It is reported that Apple’s move will be to increase AirPods sales. The last time Apple forcibly forced consumers to switch to the first generation of AirPods headsets was the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in 2016, because both devices eliminated the 3.5mm audio jack. However, the wired EarPods are still included in the packaging of these two models.
Wedbush also believes that there will be a total of four iPhone 12 models released , and it will be a hybrid version of 4G and 5G. 9to5Mac also pointed out that the US iPhone 12 model will support mmWave and sub-6GHz networks, but it has not been confirmed whether all versions will support these bands.
Wired headphones are not included in the iPhone 12 package, which is likely to dissatisfy many users. After all, buying wireless headphones will increase the cost.
