That should spur AirPods sales
Absolutely all Apple smartphones, starting with the very first model, are united by the fact that they always came with headphones in the kit. Even when Apple abandoned the 3.5 mm jack, it continued to bundle the iPhone with headphones, but with the Lightning jack.
The new iPhone 12 will not have what even the very first iPhone had. Novelties will lose complete headphones
Earlier there were rumors that the iPhone 12 line might lose complete headphones, and now the source, referring to Wedbush analysts, claims that Apple’s new products will indeed ship without headphones.
According to the source, Apple wants to encourage users to switch to AirPods wireless headphones, which, however, are the most popular in the world. In addition, this will reduce costs slightly.
At the end of this year, Apple can sell 85 million headphones, compared to 65 million in 2019. However, it is unclear how many users decide to buy AirPods solely because they did not put headphones with their new iPhone.
