Not fair unless Apple discounts a further $20-50 in addition to the existing price.
Does this set a precedent for Android OEMS to follow?
I am afraid.

Annas, 14 Oct 2020Apple is committed so they do all overApple is like a bad influence on the industry.
"This is all due to local accessibility laws which require all phone manufacturers to provide headphones in the retail package."
Does xiaomi phones have headphones in france?
Crazy how Apple shortchanges their fans. Removing those parts is not so bad despite Apple gets to pocket those savings but providing a Lightning cable with type-C on the other end is wtf?! Since when they had USB-C except in Macbook Pro?!
What's in the box?
Just the phone. Everything else is extra.
apple after done all this bs: envirunmentalist.
Apple stockholders & paid trolls pretending as experts in various channels applauding Apple for NOT charging customers with Box !
ericwang, 14 Oct 2020IPhone 13:remove the smartphone in boxiPhone 14: Buy the phone and get to only see it for once before they take it away forever, because it comes with cutting edge tech and innovation, designed to prevent you from getting addicted to your smartphone but hey one still can go for the iPhone 12 which now sells at $799 without any packaging or even a battery now, because environment. Such a good, planet caring company
I think nobody would complain if iPhone was usb-c and included a cable with usb-c to usb-a since most people own that. And for the headphones situation I would take an adapter all day. But the problem lies in that dumb little hole called lighting port. I mean who has a usb-c charger(talking about owners of a 1-2 year old phones looking to upgrade)!? Honestly I think Android owners would not complain if the new things were compatible with old. Owners don't want to buy necessary accessories for an already expensive purchase(not talking about cases since some users don't need them and wireless charging is still not mainstream).
This makes sense! You Buy a separate power brick and keep using it even after you buy an upgrade which doesn’t come with a power brick - no issues as all not sure why everyone complains. I’m not complaining.
2021 - Samsung will mock Apple for not giving changers
2022 - Samsung will also not give chargers
IPhone 13:remove the smartphone in box
The fact that they still include cable is surprising.
Just remove the box and use grocery bag instead.
This is ridiculous, Apple said they have dropped the adopter and earphone to protect the environment but they don’t feel shame when they sold it separately and even mention this while purchase iPhone on the apple.com
If apple is that careful to environment then she should stop selling these items from its stores
Apple saved around 30$ for not including charger brick and earpods. They put OLED display to reduce energy consumption on the battery and cheap battery to reduce the cost by 10$.
Apple had to put 100$ 5g modem on their iphone to make them futureproof which resulted in a lot of sacrifices. Iphone 12 will be ultimate fail. I am not talking about 120hz. I have few concerns shown below
-pixel burning on oled displays are common
-cheap battery (not only the capacity, but also the material)
They had to skip 5g and 120hz this year to make the phone cheaper and better instead. iphone 12 mini 699$ is too expensive.
