Apple unveiled the latest iPhone series phones with Hi, Speed ceremony. Apple said in a statement that the Apple iPhone 12 family of phones comes with a charger and EarPods wired headphones in the box, and that the product box only includes the phone itself and a USB-C to Lightning converter cable. With the introduction of the iPhone 12 series phones, Apple stopped selling the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max; However, along with the four iPhone 12 family phones, the iPhone SE 2020, iPhone XR and iPhone 11 are still on sale.
A review of Apple’s website shows that the iPhone 12 case has been changed to the case of other handsets sold by Apple. From now on, all the phones that Apple launches do not have chargers and headphones in the box, and only use the USB-C to Lightning converter cable. According to some old rumors referring to the removal of the charger from the iPhone 12 box, Apple may put a new, much higher quality woven converter cable inside the box; But the cable that Apple offers is the same old cable.
Apple has reduced the price of its wired headphones by $ 10 following the removal of the charger from the iPhone 11, iPhone XR and iPhone SE 2020 case. Apple’s wired headphones, better known as the AirPads (not to be confused with the AirPads), are now available at the full price of the company’s new 20-watt USB-C charging adapter and can be purchased for $ 19.
The first reports about the removal of the charger and headphones from the box of the iPhone 12 go back to a few months ago; When a whistleblower mentioned this and users on social media reacted a lot. Some users thought that wired headphones would sooner or later be removed from the iPhone case, but it was unbelievable for them to remove the charger from the case.
The Time Flies event was held in late September and we saw that the Apple Phoenix 6 Series was available without a charger; This made us sure that Apple also intends to remove the charger from the box of the iPhone 12. Of course, no one thought Cupertino would want to remove the charger from the box of the iPhone 11, iPhone XR and iPhone SE 2020.
Apple says chargers dump huge amounts of e-waste into nature each year, and attributes the removal of the charger from the iPhone 12 box to environmental protection; However, we believe that Apple’s motivation for this is something else. The new generation iPhones are equipped with a 5G modem and all have OLED screens. The cost is higher for the new generation iPhones, which is why we believe that Apple intends to cover the costs by removing the charger and headphones. Apple launched a new 20-watt charger minutes after last night’s event. The company also unveiled a wireless charger during the event.
