Apple is set to significantly slim down its packaging for its next iPhone line. The analyst previously said that Apple will no longer include the headsets wired with the iPhone 12 and today reports that it also expects the power adapter to be sold separately.
Kuo says that Apple wants to continue selling the iPhone 12 at a price similar to that of the iPhone 11 and the removal of the integrated accessories will offset the cost of the 5G network components. This will presumably significantly reduce the size of the iPhone packaging, helping to reduce Apple’s transportation costs and be better for the environment.
It is unclear whether the Lightning cable is still included. In comparison to other Apple products, the Apple Watch Series 3 includes the magnetic charging cable but does not come with the wall outlet / power adapter.
Kuo says that the 20 W power supply pictured above is legitimate but will not ship with the iPhone 1
For Apple’s upcoming iPad lineup, consisting of a new 10.8-inch iPad later this year and an 8.5-inch iPad mini in the first half of 2021, Kuo thinks that Apple will continue to group the power supply.
Many iPhone users already have a large number of chargers and earphones lying around, so removing them may not be an inconvenience in practice. However, it will certainly lead to complaints from the community that Apple is hitting prices for all accessories. Removing the integrated earbuds is believed to help increase sales of Apple’s AirPods range.
The iPhone 12 product range should consist of four models; an iPhone with a new smaller 5.4-inch screen, two 6.1-inch models and a new 6.7-inch “Max” size. All four iPhones in the iPhone 12 range will be equipped with OLED displays for the first time.
“People who don’t have them can simply buy them, no big deal” …. It’s $ 63 more and they change at the Apple Store. 10% of the price of an iPhone 11 right there. pic.twitter.com/xIv5Y0CrLC
