The new ones iPhone 12 They are already official, and with them Apple has announced the first phones in the world with a processor built in 5 nanometers such as the A14 Bionic, the first with the ability to record video with Dolby Vision (with Pro models), the 5G phone plus small and slim (in the case of the iPhone 12 mini), and also the first in the world that did not ship with a charger or headphones.
There were a lot of rumors about it, and Apple made it official at today’s event, where it mentioned that users would find a lightinig to USB-C cable inside the box, and also talked about its mission to reduce environmental impact with their phones, so the new iPhone will not have a charger or headphones.
This means that if you already have an iPhone charger you can use it for the new Apple phones, but if your charger is not 18W you will not be able to use fast charging, and you will have to buy one separately, because although they are no longer included they are still selling separately, and for now Apple has not mentioned if there will be a discount in the price of these chargers, as many people continue to use models like the iPhone XR or iPhone X and do not have an 18W charger in their possession.
Which is the reason?
Apple is not the first firm to stop including cable headphones in its boxes, but it is the first to do so with the charger, in fact they mention that with this they will consume less raw materials for each iPhone sold. Also, the box of the new iPhones will be smaller, which in addition to reducing the cardboard used means that there will be 70% more units that can fit on a single shipping pallet and thus reduce carbon emissions.
According to Apple, this change will reduce more than 2 million metric tons of carbon emissions a year, the equivalent of taking 450,000 cars off the road each year.
In the case of headphones, users can use AirPods of any generation, bluetooth headphones, or wired headphones with a lightning port.
