Numerous rumors claim that Apple will not include the charger or EarPods in the box of the iPhone 12, which seems even more likely after the company removed the power adapter from the box of the Apple Watch this year. With iOS 14.2 beta 2, which was released today for developers, the company gave us a hint that all these rumors are true.
iOS disclaims any responsibility for exposing the radio frequency in the Settings app, which carries some safety warnings for the user about how to use the device and the accessories included.
As noted by MacRumors, iOS 14.2 comes with a new version of this file that only mentions “headphones”
Before iOS 14.2 beta 2, this was what was mentioned in the RF Exposure menu:
To reduce radio frequency exposure, use a hands-free option, such as the built-in loudspeaker. the supplied headphones, or other similar accessories.
And now, after today’s update:
To reduce radio frequency exposure, use a hands-free option, such as the built-in loudspeaker. headphones, or other similar accessories.
Ming-Chi Kuo first suggested that Apple would not include EarPods in the iPhone 12 box to boost AirPod sales, which was later confirmed by trusted Leaker @ L0vetodream, who also said the wall charger would be removed out of the box. The rapporteur said that this would apply not only to the iPhone 12, but also to other iPhone models, such as the iPhone SE.
The recently released Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE do not come with the charger in the box, but only with the USB cable. Apple highlighted this during its September event as a way to protect the environment, arguing that most consumers already have a compatible charger.
The iPhone 12 is expected to be announced in mid-October, but more expensive models may not arrive in stores until November. This year’s iPhone will be redesigned with flat edges and they will all support 5G network.
