Apple will sell the iPhone 12 line without headphones and with a plug adapter in the box. Announced this Tuesday, October 13, Apple’s new generation of mobile phones will skip accessories, just like Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Series 6. To get them, consumers will have to purchase them separately.
Apple’s 2020 cellphone crop won’t come with the charger and headphones. According to Apple, the change is about saving the environment and reducing the emission of electronic waste, as in Watch 6 and Watch SE. The Lightning to USB-C cable stays in the box.
Please note that this is not the first time that Apple has removed an accessory from its phone box. In 2018, when launching the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, Apple stopped including the 3.5mm Lightning Headphone Adapter, which came with the brand’s smartphones since the iPhone 7.
Apple launches iPhone 12 without headphones or charger
Apple previewed the first 5G iPhones at the “Hi, Speed” virtual event. These are the iPhone, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone Pro Max. Prices for the quartet start at $ 699 in the US and go up to $ 1,099, considering options with less storage.
The high-end iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max devices feature stainless steel bands and come in four finishes: Silver, Graphic, Gold, and Pacific Blue. The iPhone 12 Pro has a 6.1-inch display, while the iPhone 12 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch display. The iPhone Pro gets a new telephoto lens with x2.5 optical zoom, while the iPhone Pro Max gets x5 optical zoom, a big leap from older generations of x2 optical zoom. Both devices benefit from other settings. Both iPhone come with premium hardware and three cameras, along with a LiDAR sensor for depth mapping, AR, and low-light autofocus.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max has a new sensor on its third telephoto lens with sensor-shift image stabilization, which is very popular in regular cameras. It also has a new format, Apple’s program, which synthesizes photography by computation and applies processing as parameters so that you can change settings like sharpness after the fact. For video, it can record in 10-bit Dolby Vision HDR.
The regular iPhone features a new design, reminiscent of Apple’s iPad Pro tablets. The flatter sides give the iPhones a new feel for the first time in three years. Phone 12 has an aluminum frame with new antennas all around the device to connect to 5G networks. It will be available in Black, White, Green, Blue, and Product (RED), and it features a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display with a smaller bezel than its predecessors. And the iPhone 12 is 11% thinner, 15% smaller, and 16% lighter than the older iPhone 11.
The iPhone 12 uses the A14 Bionic processor, the same chip as the new iPad Air with improved AI processing. It has a new camera, of course, dual setup with ultra-wide f2.4 and wide f1.6 camera, night mode available on all cameras, and night delay.
The new iPhone 12 will retail for $ 799. Apple also unveiled an iPhone 12 Mini, which will cost $ 699. And all models come with a new, heavy-duty version of Corning’s Gorilla Glass, dubbed the “ceramic shield”. It’s “stronger than any smartphone glass,” Apple said, and “makes the iPhone more durable than ever,” with four times the drop performance; it’s four times less likely to crack. If you drop it.
The addition of 5G connectivity is a first for the line of Apple devices. The most notable improvement in 5G over what the iPhone offers today is the faster download speed; hence the invitation to Apple’s “Hi, Speed” event. 5G can run 10-100 times faster than your regular 4G cellular connection, making downloads and streaming video faster than ever. It’s also more responsive than 4G, which makes gaming, streaming video, and other tasks much smoother.
Overall, 5G is expected to change our way of life, just as 4G has spawned apps like Uber. But this technology is still in its infancy and most consumers are not using 5G. As of Tuesday, the three major US operators have nationwide 5G networks; although they are built on the slower version of 5G. Verizon CEO Hans Vestaburg appeared on stage at Apple’s virtual event to announce that the country’s; largest mobile operator now has a low-band 5G network, which offers significantly more coverage. Extended, at slower speeds, than the previous version of its super-fast 5G network, mmWave.
The iPhone seamlessly switches from 4G to 5G to save battery. When 5G is needed, such as for streaming high definition videos, it automatically connects to the network. Otherwise, the device will activate 4G connectivity. 5G processors, which are still recent, are power-hungry and also caused the early devices to overheat. By moving from 4G to 5G, Apple aims to prevent these problems.
Apple showcased its new products on Tuesday at a virtual event, as did the launch of its iPad and Apple Watch Series 6 in October. She unveiled a new $ 99 Home Pod Mini smart speaker before talking about her 5G iPhones.
The company’s new iPhones arrive about a month later than normal, which is attribute to the pandemic. The new coronavirus, which causes a pneumonia-like illness called COVID-19; has quickly spread around the world this year, forcing cities and entire countries to put in place containment measures to slow its progression. China, where COVID-19 was first detected in late 2019, first closed its borders; blocking the production of iPhones and other products. The rest of the world quickly followed suit, and the global economy practically came to a halt. Since then, the coronavirus has infected more than 37 million people and killed more than a million. While many areas have started to reopen.
