Apple to only Include the iPhone and nothing else in the iPhone Box
2020 probably seems to be a challenging year for Apple as the company has leaked the iPhone 12 price and much more. We previously reported the Apple Watcher Jon Prosser, showed that the iPhone 12 series price will start from $649. Earlier few leaks said there can be four iPhone models under the 5G series, and the 5.4 inches iPhone 12 price will be $649, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 price will start from $749 and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro will have a price tag of $999. And at last, the top-end iPhone 12 Pro Max with 6.7-inch will have a price of $1099.
Previously Apple Watcher Jon Prosser also showed Apple iPhone 12 to have a most unique feature- iOS renamed as iPhone OS. Well, now Kuo said that Apple will instead release a new 20W power adapter as an optional accessory for iPhones and end production of its existing 5W and 18W power adapters later this year.
Kuo believes that iPhone 12 production costs will significantly increase due to 5G support, but he expects Apple to sell the new models at a comparable price to its iPhone 11 lineup, and removing the EarPods and power adapter from the box is one way to reduce costs. Apple would likely also tout the environmental benefits of such a move.
Apple stopped offering the EarPods with the iPhone last year since the company is already pushing hard for the AirPods, and given a headphone jack is no longer available, it doesn’t seem to be a big fan of wired Lightning headphones anyway.
At the same time, the iPhone 12 is also expected to boost the adoption of wireless charging, something that all new iPhones already support. Of course, you’ll need to get the necessary hardware separately, so no matter the option you choose, you still have to pay extra to charge your new iPhone.
