AirPods Sale: Save on Apple's true wireless earbuds

  AirPods Sale: Save on Apple's true wireless earbuds Apple's AirPods are now on sale on Amazon and Walmart following the release of the new Apple iPhone 11.Chances are you locked in your preorder for an iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max this morning. And the perfect pairing, in addition to a case or two, would be Apple AirPods. Well, guess what? They're on sale from both Amazon and Walmart for the lowest price we've seen.

AirPods are the hottest item of Black Friday 2019, which makes sense since Amazon slashed prices so low it seems like a mistake. In something of a wild and admittedly intriguing rumor, Digitimesis reporting that Apple is considering bundling its popular AirPods with the iPhone 12 next year. Digitimes’ track record with respect to Apple rumors is somewhat spotty, so you’ll definitely want to take this story with a grain of salt.

Interestingly enough, the report adds that other smartphone manufacturers are also considering bundling wireless earbuds with their devices next year.

Latest AirPods Pro leak points to some new colors for Apple's earbuds

  Latest AirPods Pro leak points to some new colors for Apple's earbuds The steady trickle of third-gen AirPods rumors is turning into a flood, and yet more details have leaked out.We might see as many as eight colors, says the Economic Daily News, based on inside sources. Those colors are being tipped to include black, white and green.

As intriguing as this report is, we wouldn’t bet on it actually coming to fruition. Apple next year, with the release of its 5G iPhone, won’t really need much help when it comes to boosting iPhone sales. Recall, Apple is expecting to sell upwards of 200 million iPhone 12 units next year, a significant jump from previous estimates of 175 million. That being the case, what does Apple have to gain from bundling AirPods — which retail for $159 — with every new iPhone?

What’s more, with AirPods more popular than ever before, why would Apple just start giving away a product that consumers have no problem paying for?

AirPods Pro with new colors and new features to launch this year

  AirPods Pro with new colors and new features to launch this year A new report from the Economic Daily News has provided us with some new and interesting details regarding Apple's next-gen AirPods. Though we're not even a year removed from Apple rolling out its second-gen AirPods, we've already seen a number of credible sources pointing towards Apple introducing a Pro version of its popular wireless earbuds sometime in the next few weeks. Per the report, Apple's AirPods Pro will come in an assortment of new colors.

Sure, Apple could just raise the price of the iPhone accordingly, but why would Apple do anything that could potentially impact iPhone sales in an adverse way? Further, Apple didn’t become the most profitable company in history by just giving away products consumers are eager and happy to pay for.

All in all, this particular rumor just doesn’t seem to add up. The only possibility, and this itself may be a stretch, might see Apple bundle AirPods with its iPhone 12 Pro models.

Apple has certainly been touting a wireless future, and while it’s certainly possible AirPods may come bundled with new iPhones sometime in the next few years, it doesn’t seem likely that we’ll see it happen in 2020.

AirPods sales nearly hit 60 million in 2019 as Apple continues to dominate the wireless earbuds market .
While Apple's AirPods were initially mocked due to its somewhat unusual and somewhat funky design, the company's wireless earbuds have since become wildly popular. Indeed, optimism surrounding Apple's wireless division in general -- a division which includes AirPods, Beats, and the Apple Watch -- is a big reason why Apple shares have skyrocketed more than 50% over the last six months alone. At this point, there's no doubt that AirPods haveAt this point, there’s no doubt that AirPods have turned into a legit money-maker for Apple. To this end, some analysts anticipate that AirPods will soon generate more money for Apple than the iPod did at its peak. That’s quite impressive for an accessory.
