C'est ce que rapporte le site MacRumors (en anglais), le 28 juin, évoquant une note rédigée par Ming-Chi Kuo. On ne trouverait ainsi plus d'écouteurs filaires ni même de chargeur avec les smartphones. Ce sont les analystes de la banque Barclays qui l'annoncent.

Et ça ne s'arrête pas là. Cette politique qui permettra ainsi à Apple de faire des économies, de protéger l'environnement et... de voir les nouveaux iPhone arriver avec une boîte beaucoup plus petite. L'avantage pour Apple de cette mesure, qui promet d'être impopulaire, serait notamment économique.

La rumeur autour de l'absence des écouteurs et du chargeur dans la boîte des iPhone 12 ne cesse pas de tourner en boucle sur la toile il y a quelques semaines maintenant.

9to5Mac pense que ce choix pourrait également réduire la taille de l'emballage, ce qui contribuerait à diminuer les frais de transport.

Le bénéfice serait également marketing pour Apple, qui appuie depuis plusieurs années sur la fibre écologique de ses clients. L'aspect environnemental, car les consommateurs auraient soit disant déjà leur propre chargeur... Séparément, cela signifierait que le chargeur coûterait 35 euros et les écouteurs filaires 29 euros.

9to5Mac fait remarquer que supprimer les écouteurs filaires est "censé aider à augmenter les ventes de la gamme AirPods Apple " dont le prix se situe dans une fourchette allant de 179 à 279 euros, soit plus de 150 mille FCFA.

De nombreux utilisateurs d'iPhone ont déjà un grand nombre de chargeurs et d'écouteurs à portée de main, de sorte que leur retrait ne pose pas de problème dans la pratique.
