Effective immediately, Apple isn’t shipping EarPods or a 5W power adapter with any of the iPhone models that it sells itself, including the iPhone SE that was released in April 2020.

The company at its Oct. 13 keynote event announced a series of new environmental initiatives to reach a 100% carbon neutral footprint by 2030. Part of that, Apple VP Lisa Jackson explained, was removing the EarPods and power adapters from iPhone models.

But that doesn’t just apply to the new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro lineups. On Apple’s website, the company indicates that it won’t bundle headphones or charging bricks with the iPhone SE, iPhone 11, or iPhone XR.

“As part of our efforts to reach our environmental goals, iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini do not include a power adapter or EarPods. Please use your current Apple power adapter and headphones, or purchase these accessories separately,” Apple

Apple is no longer selling headphones and wireless speakers from companies like Sonos, Bose, and Logitech, as it prepares to launch a new, lower-cost HomePod and AirPods Studio headphones.


According to checks performed by Bloomberg, Apple removed headphones and speakers from Bose, speakers from Logitech’s Ultimate Ears brand, and Sonos speakers from its online Apple Store at the end of September. Searching for these products, which were previously sold online and in retail stores, brings up no results.

Employees at Apple retail locations have also allegedly been asked to pull third-party audio products from shelves over the course of the last few days. Retail stores and the online store continue to offer Beats-branded headphones and speakers alongside Apple’s AirPods and ‌HomePod‌.

Apple has made similar moves in the past, eliminating stock of fitness trackers ahead of the launch Apple Watch. Apple told Bloomberg that it regularly makes changes to

In first days of testing among three companies, INTRUSION Shield shuts down threats without obstructing business operations

Preliminary beta testing results from installations of INTRUSION Shield™, the highly anticipated cybersecurity solution from INTRUSION Inc. (OTCQB:INTZ), underscore the significant need for companies to change their approach to cybersecurity. Within the first three days of beta testing, Shield identified and immediately shut down a total of 461,562 threats to three companies, defending them against possible cyberattacks.

INTRUSION Shield is the first cybersecurity solution to protect organizations by not only identifying malicious traffic on a company’s network, but also using artificial intelligence (AI) to immediately neutralize threats on both incoming and outgoing traffic, effectively stopping ransomware, viruses, malware, data theft and more. Where other solutions only alert IT managers and often cannot even identify silent threats, Shield identifies and immediately stops them.

There are numerous reasons people give for not voting, including lack of interest or time or a way to get to the polls.

Aaron Berdanier wants to help overcome that last impediment, by creating maps that show early-voting sites that are served by public buses. Berdanier, who calls his project Bus to Vote, has made maps that people can download or print for early voting sites in Durham and Wake counties. He plans one for Mecklenburg soon.

“There have been studies that show that not having access to transportation can be a deterrent to going to vote,” he said. “If we can continue to reduce the barriers to voting — in this case knowing when and where to vote — then hopefully we can increase engagement.”
