Apple reduces price of accessories not included in iPhone 12 box

With the introduction of iPhone 12, Apple is no longer supplying handset buyers a standard wall charger or EarPods, a measure the company says will help offset carbon emissions as part of wider corporate environmental initiatives.

An updated online Apple Store webpage shows EarPods with Lightning Connector now sell for $19, down from $29 prior to iPhone 12’s announcement. A new 20W USB-C wall charger, which stands as a ready replacement for the 18W charger that came with iPhone 11 models, receives the same price reduction to sell for $19.

During today’s iPhone 12 unveiling, Apple Vice President of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives Lisa Jackson announced the new handset line no longer includes free wall chargers and EarPods, both staples of all iPhone models since the original debuted in 2007. The decision to remove the accessories forwards Apple’s efforts to reduce its impact on the environment, Jackson said.

iPhone 12 and MagSafe: A new way for Apple to sell expensive accessories

Apple is an interesting company, in that every new product has been engineered so that it becomes a way to sell something else. This has been true for so long, and predates the iPhone.

So, when I saw MagSafe, my first thought was not how this could improve charging, but how it would offer Apple another way to sell expensive — dare I saw, overpriced — accessories.
