Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple is planning to stop including a power adapter and EarPods in the new iPhone SE’s packaging later this year. Kuo’s research note was reported on by AppleInsider, MacRumors, and 9to5Mac.
Apple is attempting to offset the cost increases that come with upgrading the iPhone range to 5G. Smaller packaging would be more eco-friendly and also reduce shipping costs.
Last year’s inclusion of the 18w charger came after years of complaints about the slow 5W adapter. It’s not clear whether that will be the case across the whole iPhone line.
