Apple’s iPhone 12 event: A mini iPhone and HomePod, but no headphones or power brick in the box

In a prerecorded video streamed Tuesday morning, Apple unveiled its new iPhone 12 lineup that includes four different models. Filled with elaborate drone shots of Apple’s mostly empty Cupertino, Calif., headquarters, the announcement focused on camera features, durability and the promise of fast wireless connections. Literally from the rooftop (which is covered in solar panels), Apple proclaimed it was shrinking its environmental footprint by not automatically including the power adapter and headphones.

The star attraction was a new iPhone 12 line that supports new 5G cellular networks. That technology theoretically enables much faster mobile downloads than the 4G networks the iPhone has supported ever since 2012’s iPhone. But consumers won’t experience that until carriers build out their 5G networks.

These six headphones could make the perfect holiday gift

The holidays give us precious time with our loved ones, as we gather around dinner tables, living rooms, and all other types of communal spaces with those we hold near and dear.

That said, there are way too many good headphones to choose from. Let
