But for those who still didn't want to adopt them and hang in there (quite literally), the company has been shipping wired EarPods headphones.

For the last couple of years, there has been some speculation that Apple would offer a bundle of iPhone and AirPods for a combined discount.

That in turn shows that if this information is accurate then Apple expects the cheaper models in the iPhone 12 range to be by far the most popular - though that's no surprise, and we would take this information with a pinch of salt. Those pricier models are rumoured to come with a Lidar sensor for improving augmented reality performance, much like the newest iPad Pro.More news: Iran 'will support' any nation or group that fights Israel
