A new leak deep in the iOS 14 codes seems to strongly suggest that Apple will not include the EarPods in the new iPhone12 box.
This leak appears to be in the source code of the iOS 14.2 developer beta, Macrumors reported. The word “supplied” seems to be missing.
Previously, the section on exposure to radio frequency energy contained the following: “Use a hands-free option such as the built-in speakers, the supplied earphones, or similar accessories to reduce exposure to RF energy ”.
According to the new claim, the word “supplied” is now missing from this sentence. This is in line with the prediction of analyst Ming Chi-Kuo, who previously stated that the new iPhone will not have a supplied charger or EarPods in the box. Apple seems to want to limit the amount of accessories it includes.
At the Apple Event where the Apple Watch 6 was shown, CEO Tim Cook made it clear that Apple wants to limit the impact the company has on the environment and that this means that no charger will be included with the new Watch.
This is a logical change as large numbers of these chargers end up in the drawers of tech consumers around the world. Apple will still supply a USB Lightning cable with the iPhone 12. It would even be a robust braided version to prevent them from breaking often.
A good move?
Fully wireless earphones are growing in popularity, although a TechRadar poll shows that wired earphones included in the box are still often used.
The iPhone 7 was the first device that Apple no longer includes the EarPods to promote AirPods sales. Still, it’s also quite possible that, according to Apple, there are already enough Lightning EarPods in circulation that even more of them will cause too much waste in the world.
Chi-Kuo previously expressed his belief that Apple is no longer supplying the EarPods to promote AirPods sales. Yet it is also quite possible that, according to Apple, there are already enough Lightning EarPods in circulation that even more of it will cause too much waste in the world.
It’s interesting to see if Apple will mention the lack of EarPods when the iPhone 12 is expected to be released on October 13. This also applies to whether statistics are shown showing the number of EarPods worldwide as well as the amount of waste that is reduced by no longer supplying the earbuds.
Regardless, the price of the new iPhone is unlikely to drop if the accessories are now missing from the box and will lead to frustration for some customers, especially if there is no special discount when purchasing a new headphone, charger or upgrade to AirPods Pro.
