    I think to help promote high end iPhone and to help others recognize the user has one, the iPhone 8 will have premium ear buds that are somehow beats branded and have a distinctive appearance.

    Wishful. If there are premium buds, they'll be a separate purchase.

    Considering they released $150 earpods without wires, I highly doubt that.

    Maybe AirPods are included? I doubt it though.

    Apple will NOT include the Airpods. They want these as a separate commodity being how they are proprietary and have been selling strong since December. Including these with the iPhone would also increase the cost factor of the iPhone, which technically wouldn't be "Including" them if you're paying additional for them. Apple wants all the profit on the Airpods.

    Why would Apple do that when they can use a distinctive color and camera shape for the high-end iPhone?

    Using premium earbuds to promote the iPhone doesn't make any sense. Not every user will use the earbuds and anyone can purchase them.

    I expect a premium in cost with the iPhone Edition / 8. With that premium, I would like Apple to throw in the AirPods 2 (2nd generation). It's unlikely, but that would be an ideal package to a premium iPhone.

    There's no reason/motivation/incentive for Apple to do this. I don't see this happening.
