None of the iPhone 12 models ship with AirPods, a power adaptor or earbuds. Apple said it can save up to 2 million metric tons of carbon annually from not having to produce the extra accessories. Apple is also banking on most consumers already owning chargers and earbuds from previous models. Those who do not, can buy the accessories they need separately.
Previously all iPhone models shipped with a USB-C Power Adapter, some kind of charging cable, and earbuds. AirPods were always sold separately starting at $159.iPhone 12 models will only ship with a USB‑C to Lightning cable and include smaller packaging.
