Apple fans fume as new iPhone 12 is sold without earphones in box

Apple’s “eco-aware” decision to sell its new iPhone 12 handsets without earphones or a power adaptor in the box has caused dismay among fans.

Tim Cook unveiled the tech giant’s latest 5G-ready smartphones at a launch event streamed from Apple Park in California last night.

But with the cheapest Mini selling at £699 and the range topping out with the £1,099 Pro Max, customers were angry the accessories were not included.

A charging cable comes in the box to link to a computer, but users must buy a £39 wireless magnetic charger or a £19 wall adaptor.

They are also being steered towards AirPods at £159 to £249, or £19 for wired earbuds.

The move away from including chargers and earphones is meant to reduce Apple’s carbon footprint.

But one tech support worker said: “new iPhone, new rip-off”.

London right-to-repair campaigner Ugo Vallauri, co-founder of the Restart Project, said: “When we talk about electronic waste, the main culprit is the phone, not the charger, so we would like Apple to make all parts and repair information available to all.”
