As for the price of the 20-watt power adapter, which allows the phone to be charged with the plug socket, its price has now decreased by 19 dollars as well, knowing that it is a ready-made alternative to the 18-watt charger that comes with the iPhone 11.
And Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives, had previously announced that the “iPhone 12” would not include free wall chargers and headphones, after it had been an essential accessory in the iPhone since its 2007 appearance in the world.

Apple’s decision not to have chargers or headphones has been criticized by consumers and technology analysts, and the “Arab Technology News Portal” quoted these analysts as saying that the move to 5G networks is the big reason behind Apple’s search to cut costs by including fewer accessories with Her phones, not the environment.

If Apple sold roughly the same number of phones this year as it did in 2018 – about 217 million – and only 5 percent of those people decided to buy AirPods, the company would make an additional $ 700 million in gross profit.
