While it may reduce electric waste it will have costs/waste in other fashions. For example separate packing for the charging brick and all the resources involved with shipping (fuel, additional packing to ship the chargers in,etc.) said charger to either retail locations or direct to customers. If they truly wanted to reduce waste they could sell an iphone at a discount that is just the phone with no accessories for those that want to continue using their current charger/ headphones or a bundle that includes all accessories for an added premium for those that need new gear with their iphone.
They could even offer a recycling program of old accessories where you trade in your old charger/headphones for a small discount on your next purchase.
Again that's IF their true concern was to reduce waste and not to just take advantage of people.
Nothing new under the sun.
I just bought a Lenovo tablet and it came with neither a charger nor the earbuds.
Really those things are accessories nowadays.
JDK, 29 Jun 2020Why will they ditch battery? Apple wants experience to be seamless(literally, they say that... moreWell this doesn't look like a seamless experience. Imagine if you are switching from Android to Apple and you have no previous chargers left to plug in immediately after you receive the phone. You have to wait for another two or 3 days for the charger to arrive or in that case book a charger before booking the mobile. This is just just a marketing strategy. For the price of phone its not too much to include 30-50$ in box. They just try to milk the customers.
2023, Apple buys Corning and ships only a gorilla glass slab with it's logo @ $ 999....
I know people who defend the poor battery life of iPhones with "I don't need more battery life. What I have is just right".
I think this is a good move. However, what is not is Apple using this to increase their margins than passing the benefits on to consumers. At what point do Apple and its infested investors ever say this is where we draw the line...
And the next year they will sent only phone without box to give smooth experience 😡
Shanti Dope, 29 Jun 2020LOL what a nonsense excuse for such a stupid decision!
It's not like all people change phones... moreWhat can you expect from Apple.
Cheap quality products sold to buffoons at high prices.
sooner or later Apple will be selling empty box, where you can have the choice to buy the optional iPhone
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2020I have redmi note 9 pro for 20 days no dust in camera
and no any report of dust in cam in XDA formsCheck some forums from Indonesian, Malaysian, or Filipino users, they have reported it.
Regular Note 9 might have display touch delay issues. Not sure about burn-in.
Orion20, 29 Jun 2020How much does Apple pay you to do this? Could be a really good side business.Heck I don't even like the SE. If I was an Apple fan then I would have liked all of its models. iPod and SE are garbage.
Let's just see what will happen.
It will be so interesting to see how apple will get away from this and people's reaction.
not buying apple products anyway.
Wily2020, 29 Jun 2020” And i bet 99% apple iphone users only have that tiny weak 5w charger at home.”
A lot of i... moreno everyone owns a charger that goes through usb type-c. not every iphone users have a macbook or ipad. You might own all, cuz you might be rich, but not including the charger is unacceptable and unheard of.
All the excuses are not valid for this one.
Dude relax, people are just fooling around. Don't need to take every comment literally.
Apple and Android fans have been exchanging slaps since forever. Just enjoy the dry humor.
I love the idea as long they will include discounted charger, earphones or charger cable(that could wear off from old charger) on time of buying phone as option for just few £
What next lol. ? Buy the box and get the phone as a separate accessory ?
Is you already own an iPhone, makes sense. New user, I'm not so sure they will get down with this one.
JDK, 29 Jun 2020The last thing GSMA needs is you android fans bragging about android superiority. Ain't nobody... moreAnd people will switch from iOS to Android. Y'all need to stop this petty foolishness. It's phone and an operating system. Why y'all argue over these things is beyond me.
MagicMonkeyBoy, 29 Jun 2020Apple... Sooo innovative... 20watt charging... Way better than Android :-)
What's next? No... moreThe last thing GSMA needs is you android fans bragging about android superiority. Ain't nobody care about "slower charging". Too bad people will keep on buying and people will keep on switching from android.
You know MrWhoseTheBoss? He emphasizes the features on android phones and yet he still switches to iPhone.
And sure, if you can predict the future like that, stop chatting here and become a multimillionaire, then people actually will listen to you on your anti apple comments.
Apple will ship iphone 13 without iphone 13 device.
Just the box and papers.
