iPhone 12 tipped to come with a nasty surprise for Apple fans

California-based tech giant Apple may delay its iPhone 12 announcement event, expected for September, due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

However, the irony is that Apple's iPhones since the iPhone 7, when it removed the headphone jack, have become thicker over the years.

According to Posser, a 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models will be available with 128GB or 256GB of storage and that 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro models will have 128GB, 256GB and 512GB storage options.

Prosser has also claimed that the upcoming 5.4-inch iPhone 12 may start from $649 while 6.1-inch iPhone 12 may come with a price tag of $749.

Hype for the Apple iPhone 12 has been building rapidly over the past couple of months, with the American maker's incoming flagship reported to come loaded with lighting fast 5G connectivity, a LiDAR-packing new camera system, an incendiary new A14 Bionic processor, and a suite of advanced new hardware features.

According to the latest report by analyst and insider Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple may not be planning to include the wired EarPods earphones in iPhone 12 boxes.

As audiophiles here at T3, though, we always looks to improve on a phone's base bundled-in earphone offering, and there is no doubting that the Apple AirPods Pro would be a ideal partner for the hot new iPhone handset. Despite the pandemic and the decline in shipments in Q2 2020, Kuo as revised his sales forecast for the AirPods for the entire 2020 from 80-90 million units to around 93-94 million units.

The reports about Apple dropping the earphones with the iPhone 12 will not please consumers, as there are still quite a few people out there who prefer to listen to music in an old-fashioned manner, ie wired headphones.

AirPods Pro earbuds are shipping again, but newer models appear to be assembled in Vietnam.

In addition, if users want to save they can always opt to buy new EarPods that cost 29 euros in the official Apple store, rather than spending 179 euros or more on AirPods. Soon after, the company must carry out promotions or offer special discounts on AirPods that are present in the market today.
