The new iPhone 12 was finally officially presented today. After many months of speculation and anxiety, the new Apple smartphones are ready to reach the market and in the hands of fans.
However, this year’s models will reach users’ hands a little more lightweight “. This is because, as was feared, the new iPhone 12 will not have the usual accessories inside its retail box.
Wall adapter and earpods disappear from the iPhone case 12
The boxes that will carry the new iPhone 12 even your users will come with just the basics. This means that you will not be entitled to a new wall adapter, nor to brand new earpods .
In addition to the smartphone, the iPhone case 12 will bring only a Lightning to USB-C cable. This can be used with any adapter you already have at home to charge your new iPhone. It is curious to note that other models, such as the iPhone SE, iPhone 11 or XR, present on the Apple website in Portugal, they also lack an adapter.
In addition to the rumors that already indicated this change, the launch of the Apple Watch Series 6 was already an omen for what is confirmed today. Also, the American’s new smartwatch came without a wall adapter.
Apple justifies this measure with environmental concerns
According to Apple, this removal of accessories will allow you to create smaller retail boxes for your new Device. Something that will result in 70% more units per pallet for shipping the product.
According to your estimates, this will allow a reduction of carbon emissions in the order of 2 million metric tons per year. The equivalent of removing 450 millions of cars from the road each year.
Obviously this measure does not will go unnoticed in the market. Some rumors already say that Samsung will be able to do the same in its next tops of range and I am not surprised that more follow the same path.
