New rumors about the iPhone 12, upcoming iPads

In notes to clients — as noted by MacRumors — analyst Ming-Chi Kuo offers some new forecasts on the upcoming “iPhone 12” and iPad updates. 

Regarding the former, he says that Apple won’t include earbuds or a charger in the box, but will sell a 20W power adapter separately. He adds that the adapter will replace currently 5W and 18W power adapters, which will be discontinued.

Kuo says that ditching earbuds and a power adapter will allow Apple to keep the pricing of the iPhone 12 line-up comparable to those of the iPhone 11 line-up despite the addition of 5G support, which adds more to production costs.
