Exactly a week ago, on 13th October, Apple showcased its next-generation iPhones i.e. iPhone 12 series that comes with 5G technology along with other top-notch features. At the same time, Apple authority also declared that the users will get only the handset and a cable in the box of any iPhone 12 models. That means, there will be no power adapter and no earphones. Apple takes this decision to fulfil its pledge to become 100% carbon-free by 2030.
Just after the announcement, other smartphone industry leaders started trolling the Cupertino giant. Samsung was the first to express that, and now, the Chinese firm Xiaomi follows the same. It posted a clip on Twitter just on the next day of the iPhone 12 launch where a person is unboxing Mi 10T Pro to show the power adaptor inside. On top of that, in the caption, Xiaomi wrote, ” Don’t worry, we didn’t leave anything out of the box with #Mi10TPro.” Over 1 million people already watch the clip at the time of my writing.
This is not a new thing for Apple. It was trolled earlier when it removed the headphone jack from the iPhones. All the rivals trolled Apple, but a few months later they followed the same path. Even there was enough space to add the headphone jack inside some of the handsets, but the makers didn’t add that.
It’s fully admirable that Apple is trying to be fully carbon-free by 2030, but the other companies may take advantage of this strategy to generate revenue only, and surely, that will not be fair.
