The new iPhone 12 just announced will not contain a charger or headphones. Yes, at today's Event, the Cupertino-based company confirmed that the iPhone 12 does not contain a charger, but only a cable.
Why; But of course for the good of humanity!
Apple removes chargers from its phones to reduce the ecological footprint created by e-waste accessories.
The company said it would reduce carbon emissions by up to 2 million metric tons each year, the equivalent of 450.000 cars. Fantastic for the environment but I do not think it is the only reason. Because if it were, one accessory from the box of each device would have to be reflected in the price.
So good for the environment? or a bigger profit margin for Apple? I will not answer the question, but I will go a little further.
Apple is the first major company to remove the charger and headphones. What do you say others will follow?
