IPhone 12 reportedly won't come with a charger

Initially, Guo MingHao predicted to cancel off the headset but it seems like the headset won't seal the cost so he is expecting to see all iPhone 12 to pack without the charger as well.

Another reason, according to 9to5Mac, is that it will reduce the size of the iPhone's packaging "considerably" to help lower the company's freight costs and reduce the environmental impact of shipping millions of iPhones.

You've probably done this, as noone really needs a new charger every couple of years or so, when you upgrade to a newer iPhone version.

His words match a prediction by Barclays' team of analysts, who also said that all models of the iPhone 12 will omit the charging plug. However, Apple argued that the introduction of a universal charging port would lead to "unprecedented" e-waste. Do you think the lack of a power adapter in the box will bother you? And now, one concept artist has created a stunning trailer (below) based on everything we know so far, and it provides our clearest glimpse yet of the iPhone 12's design - in all its colourful glory. Instead, customers will be provided with the option to purchase it separately. To add an 18W USB-C power adapter and a set of earbuds to a shopping cart on the online Apple Store now costs consumers an additional $63, which is almost 10pc of the cost of a 64GB iPhone 11. And, by adopting a 20W model, at least Apple is committed to speeding up charge times.

According to a report from notable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is set to release a 10.8-inch iPad before the end of the year, and will follow up with an 8.5-inch model in the first half of 2021. Last refreshed in 2019, Apple's smallest tablet also comes with the A12 Bionic chip, which gives it a decent amount of power.
