According to a statement from the analyst MacRumors has had access to, the iPhone 12 will include neither headphones nor a power adapter in the box. Kuo has considered that the company will launch as an optional accessory for the iPhone a new 20W power adapter and later this year it will stop producing 5 and 18W power adapters.
Also, the Apple analyst has stated that the new 20W power adapter will be similar to the 18W with a USB Type-C Power Delivery connector for fast charging.
According to the Apple analyst, the production costs of the iPhone 12 will increase due to the incorporation of 5G technology in the new iPhone line. By removing the headphones and the power adapter from the box, the company can reduce costs, although it could also cite environmental reasons.
Kuo also believes Apple will discontinue 5W power adapters with the second-generation iPhone SE later this year, though it will continue to include a 12W power adapter with iPad, 10.2-inch iPad Air and iPad mini. .
