Bad news for Apple fans! The iPhone 12 is losing another accessory from its box, the latest build of iOS 14 suggests.
Extracts From The Beta
MacRumors noted that, within the iOS 14.2 beta, a text regarding discussing user exposure to RF (radio frequency) energy had a particular word removed.
It wouldn’t necessarily be something interesting by itself, but the rumors surrounding it suggest that the word’s omission has a reason behind it.
The text doesn’t mention supplying headphones, so it appears to confirm rumors that Apple wouldn’t include EarPods in the boxes of future iPhones.
The iPhone 12 apparently won’t be packed with a charger in the box to save costs and decrease electronic waste.
It’s a lot like what Apple did with the Apple Watch 6 and Apple Watch SE.
Neither of the recently introduced smartwatches comes with charging bricks.
The decision would improve the uptake of Apple’s popular AirPods Pro and regular AirPods, as users decide to switch to wireless earbuds after having to rely on 3.5mm or Lightning connectors for years.
Some users prefer the over-ear design of the rumored AirPods Studio, which are expected to be released later this year.
The only charging – related accessory to be featured in the box is a USB-C to Lightning cable.
There is an upside to this – Apple stepped up the quality of the cable, which has a durable braided design now, which means that you won’t have to replace it as fast as Apple got us used to.
It’s believed that the iPhone 12 lineup will be released on October 13.
On the side, Apple would also introduce its AirTag trackers.
