iPhone 12 Models Won’t Include Charger in the box and the 20W Power Adapter Will Be Sold Separately.
Apple has always been heavily criticized for their weird cost-cutting techniques, points like how they are still coming up with lighting port and how could they still include a 5 W charging adapter has been always revolving around the critics of Apple, but this year there might be a big change in the charging section.
According to a report by Macrumors.com iPhone 12 models will not include EarPods and the power adapter in the box. 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. The form factor of the new 20W power adapter is said to be similar to the 18W version, with USB-C Power Delivery for fast charging.
Earlier rumors suggested that the iPhone 12 series will have 5G support. The production costs might significantly increase due to 5G support and removing the EarPods and power adapter from the box will effectively reduce the cost.
The report also said that Apple will stop including a 5W power adapter with the second-generation iPhone SE later this year, but a 12W power adapter will continue to be included with current generations of the 10.2-inch iPad, iPad Air, and iPad mini.
