Kuo: Apple may not bundle earbuds with iPhone 12

The Lightning-to-3.5mm headphone adapter is already no longer included in the iPhone's box, and by dropping the EarPods in the same way, Apple is effectively pushing buyers into adopting Bluetooth headphones if they haven't already, or buying a pair of the $30 EarPods or other Lightning-connected headphones separately. However, this isn't Apple's first offence and it's more unforgivable than its last. "In addition to the need for new ‌iPhone‌ users to supply their own earphones, Kuo expects an uptick in ‌AirPods‌ shipments to be driven by an end to ‌AirPods‌ inventory depletion by the second half of the year, coupled with the likelihood that Apple will offer a special ‌AirPods‌ promotion in late 2020", the report added.

Young says Apple could be bringing extreme dynamic range (XDR) to its iPhone lineup, which is specified as 1,000 nits of full-screen brightness and 1,600 nits of maximum brightness.

So according to Ming Chi-Kuo, Apple is going "heavily promote or discount the AirPods this holiday season".

Apple previously included a Lightning 3.5mm connector in the adapter box when it got rid of the headphone connector, but stopped releasing it for free when it released the iPhone XS series in 2018. The wireless AirPods start at $159, while the AirPods Pro cost $249. This is pure speculation, mind you; it's quite possible that Apple keeps the EarPods as an accessory in its inventory for many years to come.

AirPods have become an increasingly important part of Apple's product lineup since their 2016 debut.

It is not clear as yet on which model of the iPhone 12 this logic board is for, it was posted on Twitter by LeoRepairYao and LOvertodream. At this point, it's no secret that Apple's four new iPhone 12 models will incorporate OLED displays, but a new publication from DisplaySupplyChain It provides us with even more granular information about each model, both from a viewing technology and from a pricing perspective. Those pricier models are rumoured to come with a Lidar sensor for improving augmented reality performance, much like the newest iPad Pro.
