The new iPhone models are in the starting blocks. Analysts Ming-Chi Kuo speculates that Apple will cut some of the usual accessories. Customers would have to prepare for additional costs.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the new iPhone is unlikely to come with headphones or a charger, MacRumors reported, citing the insider. Apple should use a new 20W fast charger in the future. The production of the usual 5W and 18W power supplies could soon be replaced. The iPhone box would then probably only contain a charging cable. Buyers would have to get the adapter separately.
The iPhone 12 is to be launched with a 5G modem. The production costs are significantly higher than with the previous models. According to consistent media reports, Apple could strive to keep the price of the new smartphone competitive by reducing the number of accessories. Environmental protection could also be a possible reason. The group can also reduce the packaging material by reducing the scope of delivery.
So far, the circulating reports have only been rumors and speculations. However, should they actually prove to be true, then new Apple customers for EarPods and adapters will probably have to plan around 60 euros, which will be due in addition to the smartphone. Most Apple customers will already have a charging cable and headphones at home anyway.
The official launch of the new iPhone models is expected this autumn.
