Recently, Apple re-listed the iPhone XR, which caused a heated discussion among netizens.
Originally, this old model released three years ago would not cause such a high level of heat, but in the name of environmental protection, Apple canceled the EarPods and charger that were previously included with the phone, but many netizens complained about it.
According to Apple’s official website, the new iPhone XR currently only contains the phone and a USB-C to lightning cable that supports 18W fast charging, nothing else.
It is worth noting that Apple also included two sentences below the package content display, as follows:
As part of our efforts to reach our environmental goals, iPhone XR no longer includes a power adapter or EarPods. Please use your existing Apple power adapter and headphones or buy these accessories separately.
These two lines of small characters were originally Apple’s comment on the cancellation of the charger, but they have caused many netizens to question, especially the last sentence, buy these accessories separately. Netizens think that it is exposing their fox tail and still want to make money for selling accessories.
It is reported that Apple has canceled the bonus of power adapters and earphones from the iPhone 12 series. Apple said at that time that there are 700 million earphones and 2 billion Apple power adapters in the world, which shows that most people already have these two accessories.
The cancellation of these two accessories will reduce carbon emissions by more than 2 million tons per year, which is equivalent to removing 450,000 cars from the road each year.
Do you agree with Apple’s reason for canceling the headphone and power adapter?
