Ming-Chi Kuo says iPhone 12 won’t include headphones or charger in box

The sadness: Following the lead of other sources, Ming-Chi Kuo (76.4% accurate) says that he also thinks Apple will be slimming down in-box accessories for the iPhone 12.

  • Only a Lightning to USB-C cable will be included in the box of new phones this year
  • Apple plans to start selling a new 20W charger as a separate accessory
  • Later this year, even the iPhone SE won’t include a charger

Our take: Yeah so, this is simply disappointing. A significant number of people can barely keep track of the one charger included with their iPhone: if Apple doesn’t include a charger at all this year, it’s going to seriously and negatively affect those users.
