Apple announced last night the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Apple Watch SE. Along with the announcements, the company stated that it is removing the USB adapter that was in the Watch box.
The news probably went down to the fine print as everyone focused on Apple's new super duper products (iPhone 12 follows today).
The Cupertino-based company said the reason is environmental. He claimed that this step would save carbon equivalent over 50.000 cars per year.
This means that Apple will have to produce millions of these chargers to ship with the Watch.
This move has fueled rumors that the iPhone 12 box will not contain any power supply.
If you are an iPhone user, you may already have a lightning cable, but the Apple Watch or upcoming iPhone chargers may not be compatible.
So it is rather doubtful whether Apple will save as much carbon as it claims.
Also, the Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE are available at $ 399 and $ 279 respectively. As we all know, company accessories are not cheap, so you may have to pay extra to buy a power supply if you do not have one and of course you do but it is not compatible.
A TNW columnist says you should not trust anyone with a cordless phone. The same can be said for smartwatches.
