Apple will not include EarPods or a charger in the box with the its new iPhone 12 smartphones, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Corroborating a leak from last week, Kuo says Apple will release a new 20W power adapter for iPhone and discontinue its existing 5W and 18W power adapters. It's unclear how much this 20W power adapter will cost.

Production of Apple's next generation iPhones is said to cost significantly more due to 5G support. The company is reportedly looking to cut costs and keep iPhone prices the same by not including EarPods or a power adapter in the box.

Will you be upset if Apple stops including these accessories with the purchase of an iPhone? Let us know in the comments!

Ok, no problem. Ditch the Ear Pods and the 5W Charger. Just include the AirPods with 20W or the existing 30W charger and increase the price of the entire bundle by a bit (but do not bite a hole in my pocket), I shall be ok with it.

The expense of the phone makes the two year cycle less attractive. Maybe I will wait until the third year. Tim himself told us they built the XS to last and that we should not have to replace our phones that frequently. My pc is breaking down so perhaps I will invest in that. Damn 22 ax socket will not secure the cable. Every piece of PSU Corsair AX860i is probably excellent but a faulty socket will ruin it. I tried replacing the cable. But it’s only reliable for between 20 minutes or 20 days but it’s hard to work with the uncertainty and gaming increases the unreliability.
