Just a few hours after we published our article about Apple’s new “AirPods for Android” which discusses the reasons behind Apple’s decision to start making earbuds that are compatible with devices other than the iPhone, we’ve found something more intriguing on the web! Perhaps even scandalous?
As it turns out, Apple, or rather Apple’s page on Amazon US, is using Samsung’s Galaxy S21 phone to advertise the new Beats Studio Buds for Android (and iOS)! That’s right… Your eyes aren’t deceiving you.
As seen on Amazon.com…
Although, to be fair, if they had put the Pixel 3 XL next to the iPhone 12, it would have been arguably more embarrassing for team Android.
Neither of the two apps has been abandoned by Apple. They still receive regular updates. As much as we love the Nexus 6P and HTC One iconic designs, they simply won’t look exactly… fresh when next to newer iPhones.
Apple doesn’t usually like to show off the greatest, or at least the latest from Android.
It seems like Apple’s only leaving the door to its world open, so those who use Android can come in, get a taste of the fruity world, and forget to leave. The Beats Studio Buds aren’t just compatible with Android.
We are looking forward to seeing if Apple has more Android compatible devices to share with us, or perhaps even an iPhone with USB-C? Again, if you’re curious, we go into further detail about how and why Apple decided to start making Android-compatible earbuds in our latest article about the Beats Studio Buds.
