Immediately after the iPhone 12 was announced, Xiaomi was the first company to troll Apple for its new smartphones. Remember that the package now only contains the smartphone and a cable that does not support fast charging.
Samsung said yesterday that its Galaxy smartphones will continue to ship with an AC adapter. Then the Spanish division of Xiaomi and OnePlus Apple trolled on.
“Good morning fans. Today we dreamed that our smartphones lost the charger. Fortunately, it was just a nightmare.” Says Xiaomi.
Buenos días #MiFans, hoy hemos soñado que nuestros Smartphones venían sin cargador en la caja 😰😰😰
Afortunadamente solo era una pesadilla⚡️⚡️⚡️

OnePlus has also emphasized that the charger is included in the boxes of its smartphones. A Oneplus spokesperson who hosted the OnePlus 8T launch event also said the phone comes with a 65W charger, although it costs twice as much as the previous adapter.
Apple says it is committed to protecting the environment and that taking this step will result in fewer carbon emissions and less raw material extraction. The statement is controversial because many have to buy headphones and a charger separately.
Apple removed chargers and earbuds from all iPhones, not just the iPhone 12
Apple introduced the iPhone 12, one of the features of which was the rejection of the traditional package. IPhone 12 buyers must therefore purchase their own charger and headphones separately. Furthermore! Apple’s official website has been redesigned, and the now available iPhone 11, iPhone SE and iPhone XR now come with the charging cable only.
Apple argues this for environmental reasons. The official 20W power adapter is $ 19 and MagSafe wireless charging is $ 39.
The company says the move means it will use fewer raw materials for every iPhone sold. It also allows for a smaller sales box, which means 70 percent more units can fit on a single shipping pallet and reduce CO2 emissions. Overall, Apple estimates that the changes will save more than 2 million tons of CO2 emissions annually, equivalent to removing 450,000 cars from the road annually.
The direct successor to the iPhone 11 is expected to generate excellent sales
Apple recently introduced the new family of iPhone 12 smartphones, the successors to the iPhone 11 family. A feature of the series this year is the presentation of four models; and the next thing is the iPhone 12 mini with a 5.4-inch display. Apple fans appreciate compact devices, but the majority may choose the extended version.
Renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo published a new note. It suggests that with a 6.1-inch screen, which is the direct successor to the iPhone 11 and breaking the charts, the iPhone 12 will be a bestseller with a 40-45% share of sales. He found that Apple had bought 80 to 85 million components of gadgets, up from 75 million for the iPhone 11 earlier last year. However, circumstances have developed in such a way that the launch phase for the iPhone 12 will not be long. As such, we won’t see any real demand for the iPhone 12 towards the end of the quarter. …
The specialist believes that the key factor in choosing one or another version will be the price. Even so, the cheapest iPhone 12 mini will not be able to meet the needs of the majority. so it will get 20-25%. The expensive iPhone12 Pro and iPhone12 Pro Max will account for 15 to 20% of the total circulation of the iPhone12. It is not yet clear which of the four devices will be on sale in October. Final details and prices will be announced tomorrow evening.
