Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max could feature 4K 240fps video recording

A new report is causing rumors to swirl that Apple plans to remove most of the accessories from future iPhone boxes.

While Apple users are likely to have the odd Apple power adapter or two lying around (and pairs of EarPods or alternative earbuds for that matter), this rumour will no doubt be met with cynicism by those who, perhaps quite rightly, believe such accessories should be part and parcel of a new phone.

While the iPhone 11 Pro comes with an 18-watt USB-C power adapter, it appears the iPhone 12 will use a new 20-watt USB-C adapter that will not come bundled with the handset but instead be an optional extra.

According to the report, the controversial move is to offset production costs that Apple will incur from supporting 5G on its devices.

While most iPhone 12 concepts so far have focussed on Apple's traditional "pro" iPhone colours (gold, silver and grey), ConceptsiPhone's is one of the first to show off the potential rainbow of colours we could be in store for with the standard iPhone 12: purple, white, orange, green, black, (product) red, and blue.

A Lightning cable will be included, but by trimming larger accessories it allows Apple to create a smaller package size, thereby making for a better more environmentally friendly solution.

From earlier leaks the upcoming Apple iPhone 12 series will include four different models with various specifications - iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max.

Since 5G drains the iPhone's battery a lot faster, Apple's ploy to get customers to purchase the faster charging 20W adapter makes sense.

If true, these rumored changes will likely cause a great amount of scrutiny.

Do you think iPhones should still come with power adapters and EarPods?
