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.

No charger.. Haha. Doesn't surprise me since Tim took over

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.

They are going crazy every time a bit more I’m always been an Apple fan and always use Apple products but if they are going to be doing this things every time 😔

Ditching the earpod is not really horrific since we all have something to replace it with, if not better than the original in the box. but the charger base is something that keeps the battery healthy longer and apple is kind of serious on these types of situations. also, it may be hazardous and can follow some claims by the customer.

As long as it comes with a sync cable. But honestly not including a charger is a bit strange especially if the phone requires an all new previously unreleased power supply unit.

All statements below are based on the idea that this is true. This idea is pure insanity. The scariest thing is that I could see Apple having the “courage” to do this. I don’t understand what magic of marketing terms would be used to justify this... I’m kind of curious to find out. It’s like when opening the iPhone box and a hand reaches out (horror movie style) and punches you in the face. OR, when you open the box and there’s a Willy Wonka-style golden ticket... to switch to a Google Pixel for free. I will not support this unbelievable level of greed, if this is the case. Is a $1 trillion valuation not enough? LVMH (who owns many luxury companies like Louis Vuitton, Bvlgari, Tag Heuer, Moët

Christian Dior and Fendi—to name a few, should acquire Apple (or vice versa) as they can admit their products are luxury products and not just electronics. What I’m really most upset about is that Tim Cook could not give a damn about innovation or creativity in the artistic sense. He is 100% about profits, just like 99.999999999% of other CEOs. Steve Jobs was genuinely a creative person, who cared about the end users experience to the point of obsession. Steve would be screaming if he heard this plan being discussed. Since he’s gone, all he can do is roll over in his grave over what Tim has done to his creation, Apple.
