Each December, Apple provides its employees with a special holiday gift to thank them for their contributions to the company and to celebrate the holiday season.

Employees have begun receiving their 2015 holiday gift from Apple, which consists of a set of black and red urBeats earphones from the Beats by Dr. Dre product lineup. Employees were not able to pick a color for their gifted earphones, but the packaging does have special wording: "Thank You 2015."

Apple's black and red urBeats headphones have a retail value of $99.95 and are being distributed to all of its employees around the world.

Last year, Apple employees received a custom Apple-branded Incase backpack, and in the years before that, employees have been gifted things like blankets, water bottles, hoodies, free apps, discounted iTunes gift cards, and more.

A nice move by Apple. Here come all the negative people to say how it's a crap gift that costs nothing compared to the money Apple makes and blah blah blah. Companies don't have to give employees anything for Christmas or any other holiday. Anything you get is an added bonus. The number of people that expect things given to them these days just because someone or some company has more than them gets more and more out of control every year.

Anyone who thinks Apple is removing the 3.5mm jack from the iPhone7 is nuts. Apple isn't the kind of company that would pass out thousands of presents that they know are going to be obsolete in a few months.

Before people attack this. Please note that Apple has 115,000 employees as if Mid 2015. That's an $11,500,000 in company gift value. Ask yourself if the company you work for doers this or has something of the same value based on quantity.
