i think those all oled party make prices to jump,especially for iphone 12 its nealy 120 euro compared to 11,that explains missing chargers too
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2020We did see the same happening to Nintendo products. It makes the entry price feel pretty nice ... moreif you live in the european union they can't do it beacause of the law which forces them to include a charger and headphones.
I don’t think this is a good idea. iPhone is too expensive and now without earphones. Useless to buy these phones rather i will buy a bike
And will purchase a low cost phone
That’s why mi is in top as they cost much cheaper and have all quality.
We did see the same happening to Nintendo products. It makes the entry price feel pretty nice at first. But coming from a place where Apple, android, Tizenm, microsoft etc. exists in one household: it feels weird that apple is doing it.
1.We don't own any and if, not many apple products. Since apple still uses different charging types - new customers have to buy a seperate chargers when buying into new but even used apple products since sellers will keep their chargers.
2.New phones usually have new charging speeds, you sell the old charger with the old phone (at least I do) so I end up having 1 charger with the adequate speed charge option for my new phone. Does Apple cap charging speeds or will they up their speed aswell. If so: you will have to buy new chargers anyway.
3. at least all of my devices: tablet, phones, Laptop, Bike-Lights, Easphones, though by many different manufacturers, share the same USB type: USB.C. I can cross charge them easily, though not as fast sometimes. It makes sense to not have a charger included if you use the same charging type - apple does not.
4. we all know it's just a weak promotion. The iPhone mini, which competes with the Pixel 5, OP Nord, LG Velvet is sold at 780€ now + 25€ for a charger. That's hillarious 805€. People tend to buy things at 799€ over stuff that's priced 801€ at least over here in Germany. I think many will be fooled thinking the phone is "just" 700-something € while it is actually 800€ and with that 300-400€more expensive than android competition. (the A15 was tested pretty weak in benchmarks btw, so dont come telling me the 765G is soooo much weaker and therefore makes the 200€ difference)
Hopefully they will continue shipping a battery in the box for some.more time and will not discontinue that for "environmental" reasons :)
vbn, 15 Oct 2020apologists, Apple gets away with stuff like this because of people like you. i've had man... moreI heard 11 pro max comes with usb c charger. So if you buy iphone 12 and don't have type c charger lying around, just buy 11 pro max so you can get the charger. Problem solved!!
Jus50, 15 Oct 2020Why wouldn't they bundle a $20 charger with 1000$ phone isn't that pretty dumbIt's sarcasm
They should stop including the box also.
vbn, 15 Oct 2020apologists, Apple gets away with stuff like this because of people like you. i've had man... moreHonestly I've been wanting to switch to apple for a while now so i decided to wait for the iPhone 12 and hearing that no earpods and charger will be in the box really put me off and I don't use wireless earphones i was actually waiting for the iPhone 12 so i can start using wireless earphones theres probably a lot of android users that wanna switch to IOS now so not having a phone with earpods and a charger is weird at least for me personally
that is normal for rich people with cables everywhere
What's the use of price drop then, we have to pay additional for charger and earpods
i can understand as a cost saving measure all round that chargers these days do not need to be packaged with budget to midrange phones. But when your paying excess off £$500 for a premium device id expect the charger to be with it. especially if the phone is capable of fast charging it should have the capable charger to go with it. There could also be savings to be had with contract phones Vs retail bought phones. A retail bought premium phone should always come with a charger. Where as a contract phone could come with or without depending on your needs of one.
iPhone 13 : 3000$
What's in the box:
1. Only box
Phone and other accessories to buy extra from Apple stores
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2020I had a quick look around at home, and I found 4 Apple 5W chargers and 5 sets of earpods. One... moreI have plenty of chargers, but none with a USB-C port. What does the phone come with? ...a USB-C to Lightning cable.
Anders, 15 Oct 2020Haha I like Depeche Mode too. You British and in your 40s? 😉German and 50 (Handy-Veteran).
If you spend 1000 dollars on a phone you actually don't need a phone in the box.
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2020PipelinePlace your order. But ''It's No Good'' and Apple will play ''Master And Servant'' with you. You should ''Get The Balance Right''. A free charger when you can name the albums.
I had a quick look around at home, and I found 4 Apple 5W chargers and 5 sets of earpods. One set is old enough that it has a 3.5mm jack. There's also a handful of Samsung and Pixel chargers lying about.
I really doubt anyone doesn't have a spare charger somewhere.
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2020Just buy it anyway, you're willing to spend $1000 why bother with the additional $20 for ... moreWhy wouldn't they bundle a $20 charger with 1000$ phone isn't that pretty dumb
MichaelHB, 14 Oct 2020Come on people, stop whining!. Without charger isn't the end of the world, almost all peo... moreapologists, Apple gets away with stuff like this because of people like you. i've had many phones, including iphones, never bought another one. The thing is nearly all old chargers are USB A, the cable they included is lightning to USB C, suddenly tadaa u can buy a USB c charger on their website when its not included in the box. You are hilarious
