Apple Has Effectively Removed Chargers From All iPhones Being Sold
Apple finally launched its new series of iPhones. The long-awaited iPhone 12 was introduced to the world but there were a couple of caveats to the launch. Anyway, Apple added that by the year 2030, they would be aiming for no waste by-products from any of their products. Now, this includes accessories such as chargers and cables that come along with the devices. A while back, rumours floated that Apple would be aiming for removing the charging brick from its upcoming phones. The company already did away with the earpods inside. Now, this thing has actually become reality.

According to this tweet from the Cult of Mac, the company has reportedly removed the charging bricks from all iPhone products being sold on the Apple Store. According to the article embedded, the company has even removed it from the iPhone SE, the iPhone XR: devices which came with the chargers in the box. These weren’t even the fast charging ones.
Apple was one of the first companies to move away from the headphone jack and reports stated that the company wants the future iPhones to be completely portless. Now, how will they accomplish that? They would do so by slowly taking away the essentials. As of now, the iPhones only come with a lightning cable. That’s it. Apple was keen on introducing the MagSafe charging options for the iPhones which actually do provide a good alternative. Making these more convenient than other wireless charging options. Let’s see how people react to this and sales are affected accordingly.
