- To encourage users to make the jump to AirPods, Apple is said to be running some special promo in the second half of 2020
Our take: If removing the headphones jack was a battle, this is war. While I personally haven’t touched the in-box, wired EarPods since 2016 when AirPods first came out…they are really important to most iPhone users. Removing them is going to make a billion dollar company look relatively pathetic. At least offer EarPods for free as an option for the users who do want them!
