We’ve just seen a video that will suggest how the iPhone 12 box will look. The footage shows an alleged iPhone 11 field – one of many new smaller ones, now that Apple has pledged to cease together with earbuds or wall charger blocks with their handsets – which will possible look the identical as the iPhone 12’s packaging.
The video comes courtesy of a tweet by user DuanRui with the caption ‘iPhone 11 brand new packaging.’ The quick footage reveals an iPhone box that’s a lot slimmer than those we’ve seen in previous years.
Given the iPhone 12 is barely smaller than the iPhone 11 (by a few millimeters in length and width, and it’s 0.9mm thinner), we’d totally expect the brand new Apple phone’s box to be about the identical size.
Whereas it’s solely possible that this footage isn’t authentic, it does look like the brand new smaller containers Apple confirmed throughout its iPhone 12 reveal event. Afterward, it was revealed that Apple would also depart earbuds and wall chargers out of containers of the iPhone 11, iPhone XR, and even the iPhone SE 2020 – except in France, the place boxes will nonetheless embrace the earbuds, per GSM Arena.
Wait, why won’t they come with earbuds or a wall charger?
During the iPhone 12 reveal event, Apple explained why it would pass over the wired ‘EarPods’ earbuds and wall charger block that often include their phones: given how few folks use them or nonetheless have a few of every mendacity around from older purchases, the company pitched their omission in new iPhone boxes as an environmental measure.
That is possibly true, though leaving out the items is a cost-saving measure, too. Maybe that’s helped Apple hold the 5G-capable iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max prices on the identical degree as last year’s iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max when many other flagship devices have gotten worth bumps to accommodate 5G chipsets and modems.
However Apple is not wrong about redundancy: we can attest to the plethora of Lightning chargers and earbuds that pile up when proudly owning multiple Apple products. Don’t fear, you may nonetheless purchase the earbuds and wall charger blocks separately.
