It was good while it lasted! Starting next week, iPhone models sold in France will no longer ship with a free pair of Apple's wired EarPods earphones in the box.
Ever notice that slick animation that comes across your iPhone’s screen when you bring a pair of AirPods, AirPods Pro, AirPods Max, or even certain Beats-branded Bluetooth headphones nearby?
Considering it sells products all over the globe, Apple has to contend with local regulations and laws in order to do that successfully. Or at all. Which means, while it may institute some new rules for its business practice in one region, that might not be possible in another. Like bundling wired headphones with new iPhones.
Your iPhone and iPad can help prevent hearing loss with an optional tool for measuring headphone audio levels in real-time, and our step-by-step tutorial shows you how to use it.
In a move bound to spark controversy, the iPhone 12 is the first iPhone without the bundled charger and EarPods, which are Apple's standard wired Lightning headphones. That being said, customers in France will find a pair of EarPods in their iPhone 12 box, and here's why.
The rumor that Apple will be ditching the bundled charger and Lightning-based EarPods earphones in the iPhone 12 box was just corroborated by Japanese media outlet Nikkei.
Apple may stop bundling free earphones with new iPhones by the time its next iPhone models launch this fall, a major change considering that the company has been shipping its free wired earphones, called the EarPods, ever since the original iPhone launched back in 2007.
Sharing an AirPod with a friend is great for those times when you'd like to watch or listen to something together, but doing so risks missing dialogue or sound effects that could play in the other AirPod due to stereo separation. To ensure both you and your friend hear the same thing, you need to put your AirPods into mono mode, and we show you how to do that.
On the back of their latest earnings call, a fair bit of renewed attention has been paid to Apple’s prodigious AirPods. In it, we got confirmation of what owners of the cordless headphones likely already knew, and what analysts were anticipating: AirPods crush customer satisfaction surveys and the sales are, to quote Tim Cook, a runaway success. As such, surely the Cupertino head office must feel in a party mood with regard to their EarPods successor?
Put it this way, something tells me the sound and sight of popping bottles and Eddy Cue flailing his arms to the sound of Pharrell’s Happy will have to wait - because for all their success, almost half a year into their lifecycle AirPods remain a problem child. It only takes one metric and four words to back up that not so outlandish case: ships in six weeks.
With the removal the 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple has answered many kinds of concerns with the all-new Apple wireless AirPods.
An image of another claimed spec sheet has surfaced on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo, indicating that the iPhone 7 could come with both a Lightning edition of Apple's wired EarPods and a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter in the box. As a result, the iPhone 7 should provide its owners with an appropriate solution for connecting their existing wired headphones to the handset right out of the box, without requiring them to purchase a standalone adapter.
Music is certainly a huge focus of owning Apple devices. People use all kinds of audio accessories with their mobile devices, whether they're AirPods, Powerbeats, speakers, headphones, or even built-in speakers.
Everything has its own unique sound quality, but in this tutorial, we'll show you how you can adjust the bass response on your iPhone or iPad to maximize the amount of bass you hear in your music, no matter what kind of audio device you're using with your handset.
