New iPhones Won’t Come With Headphones Or A Charging Box Anymore

Apple will no longer include a pair of wired headphones or a power adapter with new iPhones, the company announced Tuesday as it unveiled the iPhone 12, in an effort to cut down on packaging and reduce emissions.

The iPhone 12 will only come with a USB-C to Lightning cable for charging.

You’ll have to buy a $19 USB-C charging brick separately if you want to use the cable in the box, though you can still charge your phone with any old iPhone charger with a Lightning connector.

Earpods will cost another $19 if you don’t already have a pair or use wireless Airpods.

Apple says the move is part of the company’s effort to become 100% carbon neutral by 2030. 

Removing accessories, Apple says, will use fewer raw materials and thinner packaging, which allows Apple to put 70% more units on a single shipping pallet to reduce carbon emissions.

Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president for environment policy and social initiatives, suggested Tuesday that many customers already have Apple’s wired headphones and charging bricks, saying 700 million Earpods and 2 billion power adapters have already been sold.
