iPhone 12 can hit the market without charger and headphones in the box
Analysts point out that the iPhone 12 line models will be launched without a charger and headphones in the box, that is, consumers will have to buy these accessories separately.
The leaks regarding the iPhone 12 line are intensifying. Quoting some Apple suppliers, analysts at the Barclays bank said the brand’s next flagships will be launched without headphones and a power charger. If this happens, the owners will take home only the device accompanied by a Lightning cable.
There is still no information on the reason for removing the accessories, but the only plausible explanation is that the company wants to make bigger profits from the sale of each model. In some countries, for example, the 5W and 18W chargers cost $ 28 and $ 40, respectively. As for wired EarPods, they can be found today for $ 45 in e-commerce, while AirPods raise the price to $248 and $412 (Pro version).
If Apple is really considering removing these accessories from the box, we strongly believe it will be a “shot in the foot”. Isn’t having the headphones a bad thing? Yes, but the experience would be compromised in only one aspect: listening to music. However, when we talk about not delivering the charger, a basic and essential item, owners may simply be unable to use the device if it is discharged when it is unpacked. In other words, it’s like buying a car and not having gas to walk around.
Anyway, none of this has been confirmed by Apple, so we will have to wait for the arrival of other leaks to know if these accessories will, in fact, be removed from the box of the next iPhones, something that would not make much sense, especially the charger. However, when we talk about the Cupertino giant, anything can happen.
