Ioshackz.com Kuo: iPhone 12 To Feature Simpler Battery Design, AirPods 3 To Launch In 1H21 Reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo on Friday released his latest Apple research report, which offers details on the upcoming iPhone 12 lineup as well as AirPods 3.
The new AirPods 3 that will be released in the first half of 2021, however, with the existing AirPods 2 soft/hardboard average price will be 25-35% lower in the second half of 2020 than in the first half, thus, Apple has been placing pricing influence on its circuit board suppliers.
Kuo suggests that to lessen the negative impact of adopting high-cost 5G components on their hardware, Apple will exert greater bargaining pressure on component manufacturers and reduce/change component specifications to save costs.
The iPhone 12 packaging box will not include the charger and EarPods. The allegedly leaked iPhone 12 packaging pictures show that only the iPhone 12 will be provided, and there may be room for a charging cable. There is also news that in order to improve its durability and prevent long-term wear and tear, this charging cable will use a braided cable material.
