A new iPhone rumor made the rounds this weekend, and it wasnâ€™t about the notch or the flat edges, or the size of the displays. This oneâ€™s about whatâ€™s in the box. Or rather, whatâ€™s not in it.
Respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has seemingly confirmed an earlier report by Barclays that Apple wonâ€™t be supplying a charger in the iPhone 12 box. Like none at all. Not even the lame 5W adapter that takes more than an hour to provide a decent charge.
Not since Apple removed the headphone jack from the iPhone 7 has there been a rumor with more (as Apple might describe it) â€œcourage.â€� Itâ€™s unclear whether Kuo is talking about the whole iPhone 12 lineup or just the entry-level models, but his sources expect Apple to ship some new models this fall without a charger.
