Leaker Reiterates iPhone 12 Will Not Ship with EarPods and Power Adapter in Retail Box

Leaker @L0vetodream in his latest tweet claims that Apple will not be bundling a power adapter and EarPods with its upcoming iPhone 12 lineup thereby corroborating previous leaks from over the last couple of weeks.

He further claims that while Apple will remove these two in-box accessories, they will redesign the packaging of the iPhones to make them thinner and more “exquisite.”

A previous report had claimed that Apple was going to stop bundling EarPods and power adapter with the iPhone 12 lineup to cut down on its costs as it wants to keep the pricing of the devices similar to the iPhone 11 lineup. The addition of 5G and the increase in other component costs has led the company to take this decision. It will instead offer customers an option to buy a 20W USB-C charger separately.

The removal of EarPods might not be that troubling for consumers, but the lack of a power adapter in the box can definitely lead to poor user experience and be inconvenient for many customers.
