We have seen how Apple has been launching products one after the other and while we have seen devices such as the iPhone, iPad, and even the Mac lineup, the AirPod lineup from the company was completely new.
This is because they were the first wireless earphones in the industry without a wire in between and unique design. Since then, the wireless earphones market has bombarded and we have loads of great options. However, Apple remains to be the king in this segment because of its iPhone pairing as well as sound quality.
For that reason, many users were saying that there might come a time when Apple would stop making wired earphones and replace them with the AirPods altogether. Now, this was a weird idea at that time and many users thought it was too crazy.
However, Apple seems to be liking this idea as a new report reveals that the earpods that come with every new iPhone might be going away. This is because Apple wants to boost sales of its AirPods and wants iPhone 12 owners to buy them.
This move from Apple always seemed to be on the cards as every company would want to encourage people to purchase that product. But this also seems to be a stretch considering the fact that something Apple was giving away for free would be stopped in order to make people spend more money.
Having said that, we do know that only a handful of Apple users will be against this move since there would be an incentive for them to buy the AirPods. The report does mention that Apple might “heavily promote or discount the AirPods this holiday season”. It will also be likely because due to the pandemic, people are expected to shop less during this holiday season as compared to previous years.
