iPhone 12 is expected to release sometime in October and a new investor note that Apple won’t be packaging the wired earpods inside the phone box this time around.
Technical analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted something of the sort in the past, saying that it’s all a very strategic move to boost the sales of AirPods. Apple is expected to not bring any fresh AirPods model this year, after hitting the world last year with two new models. Therefore, this new strategy was employed to help drive AirPods 2 and AirPods Pro sales throughout the holiday season.
A note by a new Barclay’s investors has been accessed by MacRumors an analysis company, and the analysts from the firm also suggest that the iPhone 12 series won’t come with EarPods in the box this time. The note goes on further to also add that Apple may not ship the iPhone 12 series with a power adapter either. This leaves the phone box with just the iPhone itself and a USB Type-C to Lightning cable inside the box. The Barclays analyst claim that the information has been directly sourced based on discussions with multiple Apple suppliers.
If true, then the future iPhone 12 buyers may have to shell out more cash if they don’t already have a USB Type-C charger lying at home. In the US, a 5W Apple adapter costs $19 (roughly N7,300), while the 18W adapter is priced at $29 (roughly N11,200). The 18W adapter is currently shipped with the iPhone 11 Pro.
The analysts also claim that Apple is shockingly behind schedule for the mass production of the iPhone 12 by about four to six weeks. Nevertheless, the company will go ahead with unveiling the new iPhone 12 series in September, but sale of few models may not begin till October.
So this is a heads up for those who want to get the new IPhone 12. If you don’t already have Airpods or a power adapter for charging, I’d advise you save a few extra bucks for this, because it is definitely not coming with the phone.
