Isn’t it beneficial for Apple not to include accessories with the iPhone 12?
Apple in the US has decided not to offer accessories with the new iPhone 12 smartphones, which has drawn criticism from the company from some. It was revealed whether Apple’s decision not to include accessories with the iPhone 12 was beneficial or not.
The US company’s decision to no longer include iPhone 12 accessories has been met with criticism from internet users, but perhaps those criticisms are in the minority.
That’s because, according to a DigiTimes news report, the decision not to include accessories with the iPhone 12 was a win-win decision for Apple. A report claims that the recently announced Beats Flex headphones from the Cupertino company are doing well in sales and should be valid until the first half of 2021.
For those unfamiliar with it, Beats Flex is a $ 49 pair of headphones that have similarities to BeatsX. The new headphones cost about $ 20 more than the EarPods that usually come bundled with iPhones, but the fact that Beats Flex is wireless means they’re more attractive.
Since the US company Apple has given up on the 3.5mm headphone jack for iPhone 12, users who want to use wired headphones will have to purchase such accessories that have a Lightning connector or buy an adapter.
So $ 49 for a pair of headphones that don’t require all of this stuff is a steal. The news also claims that those at Counterpoint found that Apple’s AirPods wireless headphones were the best-selling wireless devices in 2020, accounting for 35% of the global market share.
DigiTimes believes Apple’s decision to abandon the inclusion of accessories in the iPhone 12 will soon be copied by other smartphone companies, some of which mock Apple for not including accessories anymore.
