Because climate ends at the border...

Appearently climate isn't a big deal anymore when trying to lure customers. And guess what? Airpods are worse for the climate than normal headphones due their batteries.

It's amazing to me anyone buys the Apple "green" and "climate" narratives.

Folks - they do **everything** to make an extra nickel now.
The narratives are all smoke and mirrors.

Want do something really green?
Design iPhones that are repairable and perhaps even with upgradeable modules.

Let's be real .... a massive percentage of people only want better cameras and the rest of the iPhone has been way more than good enough (great in fact) for years now.

The promo is to help clear iPhone 11 inventory...
Which is now being sold without earphones as well...
I think the 11 will sell anyway, without destroying the planet by giving free more harmful airpods.

Repairable is good, but modules would be a really bad idea imo. Modules sounds good on paper, until you realize the added bulk due to the attachment mechanism, the need to keep the same module cutout between generations, and issues with durability with detachable mechanical pieces. What if a new CPU needs a different socket or if the new camera got an extra lens? Modular concepts like Google Project ARA, LG G5, and Moto Z were all either pretty much DOA or never made it to release for these exact reasons. Besides, if upgradable laptops are any indication, non-techsavvy consumers would just get a new phone anyways even when component upgrades can be done to prolong the device lifespan.
