Apple made a very radical decision just a few months ago remove the charger from your iPhone case. It’s not a decision that only affects the iPhone 12, iPhone 11, XR and SE that Apple is currently selling, nor the charger. And it won’t be something exclusive to Apple since Xiaomi has announced that it is getting on the bandwagon.
This controversial decision is based, according to Apple, on the Environmental Protection. On the one hand, electronic waste is reduced since almost all users have one or more chargers at home. And on the other hand, Apple can reduce the size of the iPhone shell, being able to carry a lot more devices at the same time.
You can more or less believe the environmental basis for Apple’s decision, but This is the same that Xiaomi used. The CEO of the company himself has announced that his imminent Mi 11 will not include a charger in the box.
After criticizing Apple, everyone imitates it
It’s not the first time it’s happened, the same happened with the headphone jack
Hello #MiFans, today we dreamed that our smartphones were delivered without charger in the box 😰😰😰
Luckily it was just a nightmare

Now Xiaomi has confirmed that its next Mi 11 will not include a charger, and everything seems to indicate that Samsung will follow this same path. You can pretty much believe the environmental excuse, but it looks like it’s going to be a trend, and it’s not necessarily a bad thing.
From now on we will keep the chargers that we haveIf we sell a used iPhone or smartphone, we will keep its charger for the new model. If we do all of this, the number of magazines we manufacture will be significantly reduced.
