Unfortunately, it was just a rumor. All iPhone SE 2020 will include earphones with a lightning connector instead. If wearing the wired earphones is not your style, you can buy AirPods separately for $139 at BestBuy or Amazon.

How To Simply Use AirPods With Your iPhone
Whenever you put the AirPods on your ears, you will be able to hear whatever audio that is playing on your iPhone. To pause it, press the stem of an AirPod for the Pro model or double-tap on an AirPod 1st and 2nd generation and ask Siri to pause it. Alternatively, simply take one of the AirPods out of your ear and the audio will automatically stop. Once you put it back to your ear before it reaches 15 seconds, the audio will be played again.
