Apple may ship iPhone 12 series without bundled charger and EarPods

Apple is expected to launch 4 new iPhone 12 models later this year. There have been multiple leaks and rumors over the past few months regarding these phones. Amidst this, analysts from Barclays say the box content may not include EarPods as well as a charger.

The Cupertino-based tech giant is known for bold moves. It paved the way for the removal of 3.5mm headphone jack on smartphones with the launch of iPhone 7. Since then, the market for truly wireless earphones soared high.

If the Barclays’ analysts are true, then we may witness the rise of another trend which involves no bundled charger (only cable) with the purchase of new smartphones. As absurd as it sounds, it could be a possibility as some of the firm’s reports for older iPhones such as true tone for iPhone 8 & iPhone X, removal of headphone jack adapter with iPhone Xs & iPhone XR, and removal of 3D touch on iPhone 11 series turned out to be positive.

Further, the UK-based financial company also mentions the box to not include EarPods as predicted by Ming-Chi Kuo last month. It also reveals that the mass production of iPhone 12 series is four to six weeks behind schedule when compared to previous years. However, Apple is expected to announce them as usual in September.

Lastly, analysts from Barclays also expect the two higher-end iPhone 12 series to feature a triple camera setup and a LiDAR sensor which was introduced with the iPad Pro 2020. Also, there could be another iPad Pro later this year but the firm does not have more info on that.
