The announcement of the new iPhone 12 by Apple has caused a huge stir. This usually happens every time the apple company launches new products, it is the power of Apple. But this time, all the attention has turned into a somewhat different controversy. This time, they have really played it.
The brand’s new generation of smart smartphones will not include a charger or headphones in the box. The reason put forward by the firm is its commitment to respect the environment, which it will help to ‘encourage’ consumers to recycle these old cell phones for this new phone. However, many users have called this argument cheap and cheeky excuse to keep charging a lot of money for a product that now doesn’t even contain those add-ons essential for your use.
Apple’s version is as follows: “As part of our efforts to reduce environmental impact, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max do not include a power adapter or EarPods. You can use Apple’s power adapter and existing headphones or buy them separatelyThey indicate.
Thus, many have charged against the company, claiming that their chargers do not have enough durability to be able to use the old ones, and that the only alternative option is to buy them separately, so they will have to be produced anyway. But also, this new iPhone uses the USB-C connector, a new format that they began to use only a year ago, as stated Engadget. There may be people with old cell phone chargers, but these are probably incompatible with the new phone. I mean, no sense.
On the other hand, the future line set by Apple seems to be directed towards wireless charging, so, at some point, its users will also be forced to buy this new device, which now costs 45 euros. Meanwhile, those who need the wall power adapter, will have to spend 25 euros on it.
Good Morning #MiFans, today we dreamed that our smartphones came without a charger in the box 😰😰😰
Luckily it was just a nightmare⚡️⚡️⚡️

The community manager of Xiaomi Spain has not missed the opportunity, and planted a zasca at Apple with a tweet last Wednesday: “Good morning #MiFans, today we dreamed that our smartphones came without a charger in the box. Fortunately it was just a nightmare, ”he wrote.
Nor did he miss the opportunity to Samsung, since the South Korean firm published on Facebook a photograph of a charger with the subtitle “Included with your Galaxy”, attaching the following message: “Your #Galaxy gives you what you are looking for. From the most basic as a charger, even the best camera, battery, performance, memory and even a 120 Hz screen ✌️ on a smartphone ”, they wrote, taking their product out of their chest against Apple’s iPhone 12.
THE MOST POLEMIC IPHONE?
Critics of Apple have used similar arguments for years to attack fans of the bitten apple, such as the high price of their products despite their manufacture in China. But this time around, Apple’s move has led to even fiercer criticism if possible.
Wey the iPhone 12 is a real mockery from Apple, it’s like we are going to return to the design of the 5 with the speed and camera of the 11, we are only going to improve the chip, ahhhhh already part we are not going to give you a charger or headphones, alch for only 30,000 pesos. Kisses

No 120hz display, no charger or headphones in the box, no USB C port, and the giant notch from the X. No wonder Apple’s shares have fallen a lot after introducing the new iPhone 12. Even a Chinese mid-range has at least 90hz screen 🤷🏻♂️ #iphone12

They take away 2 essential things in a phone, such as the charger and headphones, with the excuse of reducing the environmental impact, but they still increase the price and still give you the option to buy them. It really sucks Apple. #AppleEvent

I laugh at those who are outraged because they are waiting like crazy for Apple to get their new phone for 1000 euros and that it does not carry an xD charger. And I have bought toys and radios all my life that says “batteries not included”. XD
