Rumors circulated in May that the standard wired earbuds will no longer be included in the typical iPhone pack, but now it seems that power adaptors will be missing too.

The base model that is the iPhone 12 will feature a 5.4-inch display that has a screen resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels and has a pixel density of 475 PPI, while the iPhone 12 Max will have a slightly bigger display - we're talking a 6.1-inch panel with 2532 x 1170 pixels resolution and 460 PPI density. Analysts at British bank Barclays (via MacRumours) have predicted that the only bundled accessory will be the Lightning to USB-C cable. Confirmation from the insider at Apple of Weinbach states these are present to check them until the iPhone 12 is published around September. Analysts also believe the mass production of iPhone 12 models is an estimated four to six weeks behind schedule.

Furthermore, Apple is saying that it wants to keep selling the iPhone 12 phone at a similar price range with the iPhone 11, and "removing the in-box accessories will offset the cost of the 5G networking components", the report added. It also means the iPhone 12 can ship in a smaller, lighter box, which makes shipping per unit cheaper.

Kuo thinks that the new iPads - including a new 10.8-inch iPad later in 2020 and an 8.5-inch iPad mini in the first half of 2021 - will continue to have the power adapter packaged with them.

You've probably done this, as noone really needs a new charger every couple of years or so, when you upgrade to a newer iPhone version.

Instead, Kuo claims Apple will release a new 20-watt power adapter with USB-C power delivery for fast charging as an optional accessory for iPhone 12 buyers.
