Apple will not be shipping power adapter and earphones in the iPhone 12 box - MSPoweruser

According to Kuo (and as reported by 9to5mac), the base iPhone 12 will not come with a charging brick in order to "keep selling the iPhone 12 at a similar price to the iPhone 11". At the moment, the iPhone 12 is rumoured to retail for $50 less than the iPhone 11 series, starting at $649 for the basic 5G version.
A Lightning cable will be included, but by trimming larger accessories it allows Apple to create a smaller package size, thereby making for a better more environmentally friendly solution.
The only accessory that will ship with the iPhone 12 will be a USB-C to Lightning cable.
Kuo also believes Apple intends to end production of both 5W and 18W chargers before the end of 2020.
The reason behind Apple's startling decision allegedly boils down to cost savings.
Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will reportedly feature displays capable of up to 120Hz refresh rates.
While Apple users are likely to have the odd Apple power adapter or two lying around (and pairs of EarPods or alternative earbuds for that matter), this rumour will no doubt be met with cynicism by those who, perhaps quite rightly, believe such accessories should be part and parcel of a new phone. Removing EarPods and charging adapters from the box, may help Apple in boosting sales of AirPods and also its 18W fast charging adapter that is sold separately. The move is said to be an attempt at hitting a price point comparable to the iPhone 11 as well as a push towards being more environmentally conscious, but it's not sitting well with fans.
Analysts have said that Apple may stop providing free earbuds and power adapters with its new smartphones.
Beyond the iPhone 12, Kuo claims that Apple will ultimately start shipping new iPads without power adapters as well. This is in line with what we heard from a Barclays analyst just days ago.
