IPhone 12 will reportedly be sold without earbuds or power adapter

Today, a well-known analyst Guo MingHao suggests that Apple will cancel the charger to reduce the costs for the new iPhone 12 and also iPhone SE.

The reasoning for this, Kuo said, is that Apple wants to offset the cost of 5G networking components to keep the upcoming model of the iPhone at a similar price to the iPhone 11, which was released in late 2019.

Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will reportedly feature displays capable of up to 120Hz refresh rates.

Sadly, there still aren't any details on whether the new iPad mini will retain its current design with just a slightly larger display (all versions of the iPad mini so far have a 7.9-inch display), or whether it will be a bigger overhaul, bringing the iPad Pro-like design to the mini.

A bump in size also (hopefully) means a smaller bezel - something for Apple fans to get excited about after being stuck with the over-sized bezels of previous iterations. However, Apple argued that the introduction of a universal charging port would lead to "unprecedented" e-waste. However, he says it won't come with the next-generation iPhone 12.

Apple blogger and iOS developer Benjamin Mayo tweeted that this could have a costly impact on consumers. While rumors have previously indicated that Apple could possibly not include EarPods in the retail box of the iPhone 12, reports surrounding the devices not coming with a power adapter are picking up pace now.

Trusted iPhone analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated recently that Apple will not bundle EarPods with the new iPhone - pushing more consumers to splash out for the wireless AirPods - and now, according to a research note obtained by MacRumors, Kuo has declared that the power adapter will be sold separately too.
