That's the right move. No chargers, no earphones. And due to lack of these, i hope Apple will make it more expensive than the previous model. iPhone lovers euphoria.
Valentin Miu, 29 Jun 2020Only Apple can do this and get away with it .they are preety much like the US government..what... moreIf Apple can sell their upcoming 5G iPhone with a price of last year model, i can bet Android companies will follow this who currently charge like $100 extra for 5G. Everyone knows that the prices of phones are getting too high and it looks like Apple have answer how to slow or stop the price hike.
A reliable source says, Apple will ship iPhone 12 even without the device in the box. The box will contain only the SIM ejecting tool and the documents. The price of the box will be $99. You can buy the phone, charger, headphone for $2000, $500, $500 accordingly.

Remember the "New phone can't fit the old charger"?
Judging by your enthusiasm to defend Apple, i think you would be one of those to buy the empty iPhone box for $999.

For apple laptop users they use some specific programs that only work for Apple devices. If these programs would work for Windows too, then probably nobody would go with the ultra expensive medicore laptops from apple

It's not like all people change phones everyday to say that it wastes a lot of environmental resources for charging bricks.
Heck, they'd even stick with the same charging brick they have that comes with the phone for the whole lifespan of their phones.
If anything, they're just asking extraordinary prices for their ordinary products. It's not to say that you're wasting your money on them, because it's your decision with your money after all, but all these marketing claims by Apple are purely bogus at best. Just like their so-called "Sapphire Lens" that can be shattered easier than normal glass lens from other brands with no such bold claims.
While I'm sure they can pull something off like, if an iPhone wasn't traded in, the power brick can be included with the phone,
This is bad...power bricks work not only with phones but with multitudes of other devices like TWS boxes, Bluetooth speakers, etc. I don't think Apple's doing it for the environment...
Wily2020, 29 Jun 2020This move Android OEMs won't like, their prices are getting really high thanks to 5G. And now ... moreWith android i see more and more things added to the box like case and headphones. Lots of android brands didnt have anything more then only phone and charger. Al these Xiaomi and the like in China started to add case and now i see that some of them already adding headphones too. Even tough they may not be any good headphones but at least they have something for you for the time you get better ones if you already dont.
thunder, 29 Jun 2020In 2022, apple will sell phone box for just $999 without any handset....and we have a choice to buy or not. I don't get what arguement you are trying to get. The industry in general is shifting away from useless accessories anyway... I know I certainly don't need another charger!
MagicMonkeyBoy, 29 Jun 2020Apple... Sooo innovative... 20watt charging... Way better than Android :-)
What's next? No... moreIs this really a valid complaint? I honestly don't need yet another charger so happy to have a choice when I buy a phone. Plus the environment, it's potentially millions of unneeded chargers.
As for profit and capitalism arguments, it's up to Apple what they charge and what they include for that price... I wouldn't judge... You either purchase or not for the price offered... Whether you are a socialist or capitalist, no need to raise that as an emotional argument here.
Waiting for mini this year..
Not including a charger and earbuds is a grave mistake and may face mockery...iPhone is not a disabled phone...earbuds and charger are basic features to take calls hands-free and juice respectively.
Best laptop processor
Intel i9 10th gen and amd ryzen 7 4800h in multi-core geekbench- 8500
Alleged apple laptop arm processor- 13000
Here after no competition in laptops...want powerful one should go with apple
I don't care honestly, the charger which came with my Iphone is super slow anyways, I have a third party charger which is way better
Trolls aside this is a brilliant move....but they can increase the price by 30 bucks and include the charger in box.. anyway people are going to buy it. I'm waiting for a14 chipset with 15 billion transistors and also a14x deadly
To most of you, there's no way Apple will do that. Why are you assuming the worst for them? What made you get butthurt from them?
Only Apple can do this and get away with it .they are preety much like the US government..whatever they do...it's the only way...a company which couldn't care less about the end user..it's all about profits now..I hope U find yourself outside top 10 producers soon..with your 96 BN of cash..
In 2022, apple will sell phone box for just $999 without any handset.
Is this sort of a joke! It is not acceptable at all to ship a phone without a charging brick! And headphone!
So you buy a phone but sorry you can't use it! You need to buy the charger desperately!?
And not including a headphone is also minimizing electric waste? This is bullshit actually.
This move Android OEMs won't like, their prices are getting really high thanks to 5G. And now rumours are saying iPhone prices will stay same or close even with 5G than their last year models.
Android OEMs have no choice, but follow this trend if they want to keep up with the pricing.
Apple... Sooo innovative... 20watt charging... Way better than Android :-)
What's next? No battery? No camera?... I know... Maybe 2022 apple will ship phones without screens... Simply buy the screen as an after market.
Dont you just love Apple! They are just soooo innovative. ;-)
