Several rumors have claimed that Apple will not include the charger or EarPods in the iPhone 12’s box, which seems even more likely after the company removed the power adapter from the Apple Watch’s box this year. With iOS 14.2 beta 2, which was released today for developers, the company has made it clear that all of these rumors are true.
iOS has a radio frequency exposure disclaimer within the Settings app, which brings some safety warnings to the user about how to use the device and the included accessories.
As noted by MacRumors, iOS 14.2 comes with a new version of this file that only mentions “headphones”
Prior to iOS 14.2 beta 2, this was what the RF exposure menu mentioned:
To reduce exposure to RF energy, use a hands-free option, such as the built-in speaker, the supplied headphonesor other similar accessories.
And now, after today’s update:
To reduce exposure to RF energy, use a hands-free option, such as the built-in speakerphone, headphonesor other similar accessories.
Ming-Chi Kuo first suggested that Apple will not include EarPods in the iPhone 12 box to boost AirPod sales, which was later confirmed by trusty leaker @ L0vetodream, who also said the wall charger will come. removed from the packaging. The leaker said this will apply not only to the iPhone 12 but also to other iPhone models such as the iPhone SE.
The recently released Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE do not come with the charger in the box, only with the USB cable. Apple highlighted this at its September event as a way to protect the environment, claiming that most users already have a compatible charger.
The announcement of the iPhone 12 is expected in mid-October, but the more expensive models may only arrive in stores in November. This year’s iPhones will be redesigned with flat edges and will all support 5G network.
