Rumors have been floating around that Apple has made a drastic decision to stop shipping charging adapters and wired EarPods with the new iPhone 12 models, which are set to release in September 2020.
Adding to this, ConceptsiPhone (@RanAvni1) tweeted a leaked picture of the inner packaging 3D design for the iPhone 12. He/She claims it to be 100% real. The leak suggests that the design can only accommodate a Lightning cable and some documentation (with Apple stickers, obviously.)
This infamous rumor has been around for a few weeks now, and the leak seems to have finally put it to rest. People have been speculating that this might be a step towards generating less e-waste, considering that consumers likely already own the required accessories. This move doesn’t make much sense, unless Apple cuts a significant cost from the prices of the iPhones.
Guess we’ll just have to wait until September for Apple to clear the air.
