iPhone 12 could ship without a charger — green or just greedy? – Tom’s Guide

The iPhone 12 may wind up being just as notable for what Apple leaves out as what it includes. Based on multiple reports, the iPhone 12 may not come with a wall charger in the box, which would be a first for the company. Every single iPhone since the original model in 2007 has shipped with a wall charger, so this would be a huge change.

Why would Apple make such a move, and, more importantly, could it backfire? There are multiple reasons for not including a charger in the box, ranging from cutting Apple’s costs to helping the environment, but the company will have to explain itself — as well as possibly provide incentives — for this omission to not be perceived as a money grab.

An unprecedented move
