iPhone 12 looking ever more likely to come without EarPods or a charger iPhone 11

We’ve been hearing for a while that the iPhone 12 might not come with EarPods or a charger in the box and, well, now we’re hearing it again.

According to TrendForce (a Taiwanese research firm), Apple won’t include wired earphones or a power adapter in the iPhone 12 box. This is apparently to cut costs and help make up for the “significantly higher” material cost of the iPhone 12, caused by the inclusion of 5G.
