Will they keep the charger on high-end pro models?
It's really unnecessary to have more chargers since you already have cables and adapters if you are a previous iPhone user.
You already have like 7 charger laying around so this is good move by Apple.
More than 1.000 euros and no charges and no earphones !!!!
Joke of the year by Apple Inc. !!!!!
No one will buy iphone then.
Because without charging you cant use it.

Apple claims it stifles innovation! They've made a fortune selling their proprietary cables and dongles. It also shows on the dreadful quality of their cables. Planned obsolescence at its best.
Ditch the charger, ditch earphones, next the battery and pay for it separately. won't be long apple will ask you to buy a paid subscription for each time to turn on your phone.
And because apple does it rest of the OEM's follow the same. 'coz you know, mobs are just some dumb cash cows to be exploited. If apple can do it, why not us?
Stop buying these nonsense for a couple of years and hold on to your current device instead of keep buying new devices yearly like a subscription. Once they're low on sales you can see them change gears fast.
This, if true, is a move to maintain profit margin. No more, no less.
sohail shafayat, 29 Jun 2020A reliable source says, Apple will ship iPhone 12 even without the device in the box. The box ... moreAh yes, comedy at best. Like really? you seriously think apple would stoop so low, oh let me guess you didn't even bother to read the article.
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2020i come from the future, i saw the iphone 15, you will have to buy the volume buttons, they cost $200Haha how original, so funny it made me switch to android, now which Chinese brand that send my data to the Chinese government will i choose, Redmi or maybe Vivo?
Orion20, 29 Jun 2020How much does Apple pay you to do this?
Could be a really good side business.Quite simple-minded aren't you? Why do android fanboys have to always come up with these quite stupid statements, like bro, go enjoy your android. Most likely you can't even afford one, let alone experience one.
''Just spoke to my pal that came from the future and it turns out that iPhone 19 doesn't come with a power button, you'll have to buy it separately''
Woah, the originality is breathtaking, almost as trash as androids software update cycle.
''Apple has officially gone nuts à²°_à²°''
Apple quite frankly don't care if you think they are gone nuts, either way android manufacturers will most likely copy them, multiple companies have actually, considered this and are currently considering this, due to mass electronic waste, most likely everyone who is buying a new phone already has a charger. It almost sounds like you didn't read the article, only the title, if not, i do recommend it. Please just read what you post before pressing that big ol' submit button, it really makes you look idiotic, and make you look like a plain boring, non-original iOS hater, for the sake of hating apple.
Apple don't do this.
You are a speciality and don't break it.
Adapter is a part and parcel for a cell phone and so does earphone.
Don't get mad!

You think a multinational brand valued at 1 trillion dollar cares, about a few people loosing respect, they care about selling their devices, not gaining respect.
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2020Typical apple use excusesI neither own an Apple product, nor i am planning to buy one to use!
Most phone makers have been pondering this kind of move (and sensibly so).
Good to see someone making the first move.
Universal connectivity & charging would be good for all (including environment).

Just spoke to my pal that came from the future and it turns out that iPhone 19 doesn't come with a power button, you'll have to buy it separately.
Pretty smart move. These "new" devices cater to a market of Apple fans (bc lets be honest, someone who buys their first Iphone doesnt immediately get the latest one), those who most likely already have a charging brick and headphones.
This is a clever way to save costs and lower the price.
Customer:Hi i want to buy the new iphone 12
Employ :Exelent.what phone are you using currently?
Customer :Iphone 11
Employ : than no charger for you, you have one already. But hey you can sell your iPhone x without the charger for a lower price or even better we can recycle it for free, it is eco friendly :D
If apple does this and say it is a good step or bla bla I would discard any respect that is there for the company.
AnonD-920712, 29 Jun 2020what the hell?
Sell the chargers separately for "Eco friendly" reasons ?
I often see ... moreThat's EU's Parliament reasoning. They wanted all phones with USB-C in them, so you can use your old charger instead and so manufacturers can stop including one. This hasn't been made law yet, but EU is known for stupid decisions, just to throw some "eco-PR" bs.
But when it'll actually become law in EU, Apple will say "see, we're already eco-friendly, we're better". Or something like that.
