Reduce Carbon Emission: Apple iPhone Officially Cancels the Charger in the Entire Package
On October 15th, 2020, with the official release of iPhone 12 series of Apple, the official said that chargers and headphones that existed before were removed from the packages of four new iPhone in order to protect environment and reduce carbon emission.
However, from http://www.chongdiantou.com/, it is found that apart from the four models of iPhone12 series, not only iPhone11, but also several other products, such as iPhone SE II and iPhone XR, canceled the charger and earphone in the package, leaving only one USB-C to Lightning data cable.
According to the information provided by Apple’s official website, after purchasing the new iPhone, users can only purchase it separately if necessary because the charger and earphone are no longer attached to the package.
Except for iPhone, the entire system of Apple Watch is also no longer equipped with a charger in its packaging. At present, there is only one strap and one 1m magnetic charging cable in the packaging except the watch itself. Chargers should also be purchased separately if necessary. At the press conference, Apple announced that it would achieve carbon neutrality in all products by 2030, and that it would completely adopt clean energy to manufacture products by 2030, further reducing the carbon emissions of each Apple product.
As soon as this news comes out, it is undoubtedly an explosive news for many third-party accessory manufacturers in China. It is foreseeable that the sales volume of third-party chargers, wired headsets, wireless headsets, and even data cables, wireless chargers and other peripheral accessories will usher in a wave of increase in the future.
