iPhone 12 without a charger included? Apple is investigating user responses

Recently, the technological world has been shaken by information that the new iPhone can be sold without a charger included. These reports are confirmed by market analysts, and the manufacturer asks users what they did with the chargers when they replaced the iPhone with a new model...

A few days ago, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from TF International announced that Apple will not only not include EarBuds headphones, but it will also stop adding a charger to the upcoming 5G iPhone models. Along with the latest version of smartphones, it will offer a new 20 W charger, but iPhone 12 users will have to pay extra for it.

To explore customer responses, Apple began sending surveys to iPhone users. In the survey, Apple asks you to choose one of six options and describe what happened to the charger used with the previous iPhone when replacing the phone with a new model. The available options are:

  • I sold or traded it with my iPhone.
  • I lost it.
  • I gave it to a family member or friend.
  • I still use it at home.
  • I still use it outside (at work, school, or other places).

The decision to get rid of the headphones is purely financial - probably the manufacturer is counting on greater profit from Bluetooth AirPods wireless headphones. Along with the survey, Apple wants to prove that users keep chargers and can use them with new smartphones. And in this way it can be argued that this accessory is not included in the set, enclosing it with an additional concern about reducing the amount of electro-waste...
