The iPhone 12 series just launched and it’s without a phone charger
The launch of a new iPhone is always a highly anticipated event. Fanboys and everywhere are eager to get their hands on the latest piece of tech from the Cupertino-based company. Well, this year’s iPhone 12 launch has been a very interesting event.
The launch of the iPhone 12 series has, yet again, managed to attract a lot of attention… as expected
The newest iPhone is a slight change from the last version, the iPhone 11, in terms of visuals. The base iPhone 12 and 12 mini models have two cameras like last year’s 11 and the Pro and Pro Max models have three cameras. Stylistically, it is more angular and people have noticed that it has borrowed design elements from the company’s own past models – particularly the iPhone 5 series.
The entire new iPhone lineup is here!

But all that aside, people are fixating over two things as usual. The price tag of the phone and the major utility change that the iPhone brings almost every other year, now. In the past it removed the traditional headphone dock and now it has removed the phone charger from the box. The company claims that this is done keeping in view the “environmental effects” but honestly, it doesn’t really make much sense when people are now being forced to buy the charger separately which will come in its own packaging thereby costing much more than bundling the charger in the same box as the phone itself.
People are particularly pissed at the iPhone 12 series not having the phone charger
no charger and headphones in the iPhone 12 box?

Apple said “we’re not including headphones or a charger with the iPhone 12, but the good news is that the box will be smaller”

Apple: *doesn't include charger in the iPhone 12 box*
"There's plenty of our chargers in the world"
Also Apple: "The iPhone 12 will include a USB-C to Lightning cable in the box so it doesn't work with your existing chargers" 🤔

Some are calling the company’s claims of helping the environment a sham
The iPhone 12 has no charger in the box to “reduce the carbon footprint” So, instead, they are going to put it in its own, separate packaging as an additional purchase… pic.twitter.com/llRcUJiRKs

Others believe this is just another move from the technology giant to make even more money on top of the already expensive iPhone 12 itself

Others are concerned what their older Apple phones might be feeling like right now
In the past, there have been legal troubles for the company after it was revealed that they slow down their older models after announcing a new model of the iPhone, so of course people couldn’t let the opportunity to joke about that go.
