iPhone 12 will likely come sans earbuds and power adapter
We already knewCan ship We are all accustomed to seeing in a box with new iPhones. But now it seems that the iPhone 12 will also come without a power adapter.
Renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who predicted last month that the iPhone would come without 12 wired earpods, now says he expects the power adapter to be sold separately as well, according to the 9to5Mac report Sunday.
Kuo, who could not be reached for comment, says removing the in-box accessories helps offset the cost of the iPhone 12’s 5G networking components, according to the report. This will help Apple sell the iPhone 12 for the same price as the iPhone 11.
9to5Mac adds that dropping earbuds and power adapters can also reduce packaging size, reducing freight costs.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Kuo’s prediction. And while it has not confirmed the names of their upcoming phones or the time of their release, we are expecting them this fall.
