I get that Apple cares about the environment. But they should have been more upfront about the necessary charging brick. The charging brick Apple sells enables fast charging. The basic 5W charging brick that was included for like more than a decade will still work if you still have a lighting to USB-A cable. You need a USB-C charging brick to enable fast charging. The only people that had those when the iPhone 12 was released were those with an iPhone 11 Pro/Pro Max and people with not too old Android phones. Other than that, you pretty much have to get a USB-C Charging brick. Luckily you can get them from more than just Apple. Just look on places like Amazon, eBay and even Wish.

Its supposed to be "eco-friendly" but whats funny is that when you buy a seperate charger, way more non-eco-friendly things are packed in the shipping box. Smartphone boxes with chargers in them wasted way less resources. So eco-friendly in their eyes just means more money, even if its by a dollar or 2

I didn't even know this was a trend, but any company claiming it's about e-waste is obviously lying through their teeth. This is quite clearly about increased profit margins (especially when you take into account that old chargers often don't support fast charging). It's the same thing as companies going paperless and claiming it's an effort to "be green". No, it's so they can save money because they no longer have to buy huge amounts of paper or ink. They don't give a hoot if they prevented a tree from being cut down.

Ok, I just burnt down my electric toothbrush because I used random powerbrick from my household - you can't use your spare charger, it's a fire hazard. I usually sell my old phone, I have rarely used my phone till the end of it's life and I always sell it with it's original charger - considering phones battery and safety. So how the hell should I have a spare charger left that is also safe to use?! Instead of being green, I now order two deliveries when I discover that the product is missing a charger - two cargo trips, two boxes, two shelves on store, two shipping containers and so on, how is that greener?! I'm pissed because I was very close burning down my house. I should have read the power output data, but I' m sure that the majority does not bother plus you have to have very good eye sight and lighting conditions to be even able to if you even know what you are looking. It's very irresponsible to leave the safety to the end user. Apple knows that everything they do will be imitated, it doesn't matter that they power supplies are locked to their product ecosystem and are more controlled in that sense. Their behaviour changes the whole industry and that is responsibility.

Apple were not the ones to have the idea of stop including chargers in the box. IT WAS NINTENDO that did it first, when they launched the "new 3ds", they likely assumed that users had a PROPRIETARY charger lying around, at least these companies are giving ways to charge your stuff, even if you don't have the best way to do so

*Apple:* It costs us 1% of our profits to include a charger! *TechQuickie:* 🤔Hmm, yes, this seems believable. Whether a phone costs $300 or $1300 it's definitely always 1%. *Also Apple:* We don't want to get rid of the lightning port. Think of all the waste! *Everyone:* Didn't you create it when there was no need for it? *TechQuickie:* Everyone probably already has chargers lying around. Great. No one will buy them anymore then. Sales of chargers will plummit to near zero!

100 problems....1 solution : Fcuk you Apple and the governing body for electronics and waste should make it a mandatory step to provide option during purchase which will give the freedom for buyers to either buy just the product or with the charger if they needed it. Manufacturers should thrown in the discount price for removing the chargers from box and add the price back when the user asks for a device with charger. This will reduce the extra packaging materials like plastic wraps and cardboard boxes, transportation resources and BS prices. THAT'S how these fcuking useless pieces of shitty trillion and billion dollar companies should take step towards reducing e-waste....and not just removing it from the box and selling it seperately in the name of fuckin "eco green" "carbon neutral" and shit

The problem with this whole 'eco-friendly' approach is the fact that many smartphones, Apple included, now come with a Type-C charger port on their cables, rather than the traditional USB Type-A ports. Meaning the vast majority of people, who still don't own Type-C charger plugs, will have to shell out for a new one anyway. This means there will be way more packaging, single-use plastics, and having to ship way more separate chargers.

The issue with doing it at this exact moment is we are also switching wall warts to thunderbolt or usb-c. No one has those, everyone has standard usb wallwarts from 5-6 years ago. So your headphones not coming with a pair is nice, your phone that expects fast charging from a hub that only comes with phones newer than 2 years on the other hand is gross as a customer.

The horrible thing about this is that now all chargers will be the crappy, low efficiency chargers that brick devices plugged into them. An Apple charger had basically no chance to brick your iPhone, follows or exceeds all safety standards, and converts power at about 80% efficiency. An identically looking counterfeit Apple charger while costing under 10% of the price, follows no safety regulations whatsoever, is designed to last a week, only provide like 60% efficiencym and are notorious iPhone bickers. I wonder how many extra iPhone Apple will be able to sell to customers with burn out charging chips?

Why not sell both options, one with the charger and one without, mark up the charger one for even more profit. People gonna buy the one without charger because it's the cable the part that wears off and breaks, needing replacement, while the charger is perfectly funcional for a long time.

The environment is the headline but really they want to save money by not making an additional device which also means less weight in shipping (in bulk) and smaller boxes to package them in (will be in the pennies but when you multiply that in the millions...they add up). Then they force you to buy a wall charger which they can up price for much more as it's considered a luxury and not a necessity anymore. The headline maybe about "saving the environment" but the footnote is about making profit and they know they can get away with it because they have a legion of fans that are brand loyal (*cough* sheeps) that would defend Apple no matter what they do.

Well you missed one BIIIIIIG thing. Apple had, until iPhone 12, bundled USB A to lightning cable, and appropriate USB A charger. So people who upgrade every year, have charger but not the cable to use it. (let's just say that original Apple cables are cheap shit, and will not last for more than a year). In new box you get USB C to lightning cable so Apple is selling you a product that does NOT WORK out of the box. This is illegal and they should be punished with at least 50% of yearly profit because of that practices. If they care about environment, they would give last years, or this years Apple devices, GaN USB C type chargers, or go Xiaomi 's way: when you buy, you can request charger for free, but default is that you do not get it.

could the mafactors just do a version,where you can get a cheaper verson of the product without the charger.this would solve the e waste issue beacuse that would leave it up to the consumers to pick the appropert version,thefore shift some of the responsibility onto consumers,to make the right choose,oof course i could imagine it could cost extra fo this to be done so slitly extra cost,but if this could be made a legal requirment that could work.Speciallyy when it comes to quick charging.

I hate those environmental claim a lot. Even this video fails to mention that all the charging brick we have lying around only supports USB-A but the cable that shipped with the phone is USB C. Yes the brick didn’t break, but cable does. If apple really care about the environment and want us to reuse those bricks, they should ship USB-A cable with their new phone. The whole move is just to scam us more.

Reducing e-waste creates more of a problem because if they don't include a charger in the box consumers will buy a random charger from places like AliExpress, expect it to work because it will just fit right? WRONG, yes it will charge your phone but it will significantly reduce the life span of the battery and since it's not replaceable it would create more e-waste in landfills anyway, never underestimate the morons out there. I agree we need to reduce e-wate but this is not how you do it, plus this mentality that "you got a charger right" needs to stop company's don't care about the environment they just to exploite it to make more profit and to get good publicity so people will buy there products, I don't buy this lack of charger in a box scam because is a load of rubbish. At the end of the day it makes sense to include a charger in a box to reduce e-waste untill we find a better way to reduce e-waste like a charger that's designed to charge all phones so you won't need own as many chargers.

People seem to forget that nothing is ewaste until it’s valueless and thrown away. Macs, iPhones and iPads generally don’t get thrown away. They’re sold for 70% what you paid or repaired for >$150. My Galaxy S10 is eWaste. Cracked screen, costs $300 to repair myself. My Tab S2 and Tab A are eWaste, they have no secondhand market and too slow to use. My 3 year old Microsoft Surface is ewaste, as it needs a $2 part but its fucking glued together. All while a 5 year old MacBook Pro is still worth $500 and runs like new, or a secondhand iPad is still worth what I paid two years ago,.
