During Apple’s “Hi Speed” event, the company finally announced something that most enthusiasts were concerned about. The next iPhones won’t launch with chargers or Apple headphones. Apple claims it has made the changes to reduce its environmental impact and reduce its carbon footprint.
Apple claims that around 700 million Lightning headphones and 2 billion Apple power adapters are already available in the world.
This is not the first time that Apple will launch a device without the charger. At last month’s Time Flies launch event, the company announced that it will not provide a charging block with the new Apple Watch series.
Apple claims that by eliminating these accessories it will also be able to reduce device packaging in terms of size, allowing more units to be shipped within the same volume. The company will be able to ship 70% more items in the same shipping size.
Apple aims to be completely carbon neutral by 2030. To achieve this, the company will use recycled rare earth materials in the next iPhone 12. These new changes will help Apple save 2 million metric tons of carbon emissions per year.
Apple released four new iPhones at the ‘Hi-Speed’ event. The iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The iPhone 12 series will be sold in India starting October 30 and will start at ₹ 69,900. The devices will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage variants.
The iPhone 12 will start at ₹ 76,900, the 12 Mini will sell at a starting price of ₹ 69,900. On the other hand, the iPhone 12 Pro will cost ₹ 1,19,900 for the base 64GB variant, while the 12 Pro Max has a starting price of ₹ 1,29,900 in India. These two devices will also be sold from October 30.
