As you know, Apple has decided not to include the power adapter and wired EarPods in the box anymore new 5G iPhone 12. This also applies to older iPhone models, which they still sell, including the iPhone 11, iPhone XR and iPhone SE (2020). Apple claims that this is done as a step towards environmental protection, as the production of fewer adapters will reduce the amount of carbon emissions equal to the amount saved by taking 450,000 cars off the road in one year. This will also allow Apple to reduce the size of the boxes in which the iPhone is packed. This will result in 70% more product fitting on one pallet.
Samsung mocks Apple, but leaves room for Apple to take revenge
Over the years, Apple has already produced more than 2 billion energy bricks along with 700 million wired EarPods. Those who are skeptical may say that Apple is doing this to sell new power adapters and EarPods. Heck, some consumers may turn to wireless AirPods (much more expensive than EarPods). Even when Apple lowers the price of a new charger by 20 watts and EarPods by $ 1
0 to $ 19, the truth is that Apple is willing to make this delicious money for them, as most Apple fans will still buy a new charger and a pair of EarPods, even if old people lie around them.
Samsung ridicules Apple’s decision to supply new iPhone models without a charger
Samsung has decided to take this opportunity to mock Apple for removing two accessories from the iPhone box. On Facebook, Samsung posted a photo of the Galaxy power adapter, which states that the accessory “is included with your Galaxy.” But eventually Samsung may eat its words. In the summer, it was speculated that Sammy was thinking about delivering the Galaxy S21 series without bricks. Then Samsung said that, like Apple, it has supplied so many chargers that you will not need to include a new one in the box. And this is not the first time that Samsung has put its tongue on Apple, just to almost bite it.
In 2016, Apple rumored to have removed the 3.5mm headphone port from the iPhone 7, but even before the release of this series, Samsung used the deployment of the Galaxy Note 7 to take some pictures in Apple. Then Justin Denison, Samsung’s head of product strategy and marketing, said of the Galaxy Note 7, “Do you know what else it comes with? Audio jack. I’m just saying.” Of course, Apple laughed last time when the Galaxy Note 7 turned out to be a great tool for making smor. Shortly afterwards, Samsung followed Apple and dropped the 3.5mm port before returning it to certain models.
Today, with its post on Facebook, Samsung went beyond the 3.5 mm socket. All summer we’ve been hearing that Apple is going to include a refresh rate of 120 Hz for some of its new phones. This seemed to make sense, as the ProMotion iPad Pro displays are also updated 120 times per second. But 120 Hz could not be used for the iPhone 2020. Heck, even the 90Hz refresh rate was nowhere to be seen; as a result, Samsung was able to rub it in the face of Apple. The Korean manufacturer said on Facebook today: “Your Galaxy really gives you what you are looking for. From the simplest, like a charger, to the best camera, battery, performance, memory and even a 120 Hz screen on a smartphone.”
So we have to wonder if Samsung’s decision to knock Apple out of the iPhone charger will eventually result? If the latter decides to do the same thing, which is quite plausible, you know that Apple will take revenge. And just as other phone manufacturers have started removing the 3.5mm port from their phones after rumors of Apple (if memory doesn’t help, Moto Z Force was actually the first handset to do without a port), many other companies will also start to leave the charger outside the headphone boxes.
