No charger with the 'Phones...

...but we sort of expected that.

An excellent time to consider the impact on the environment, especially considering there's a new charger in town– MagSafe, $40.

I wonder if/when the current (pre-12, since they're not selling them yet) will ship without chargers.

But since the 12s have a magnet in them, is the credit card shielded at all, from the magnet?

Not enough Gausses to matter?





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

It's good because Apple handed out chargers that didn't even address what the phones were capable of. I would argue that most people that own iPhone Pros use weaker chargers than they could be using.

I charge my iPhone "on top of" my Note 10+ using reverse wireless charging.

I'm going to replace my iPhone XS with one of these offerings.

At some point I stopped taking the charger/cable/headphones out of the box. Just left them in there so they'd be "new" if I ever sold the phone.

Who needs their cheap ass 1A charger and garbage wire? Either give us something decent or don't bother...

Yes. As someone else mentioned. Didn’t even take the offerings out.

You need a whole wheel with that whine.

All of mine work fine, if not fast.

Cables hold up well, though I can't say the same for some of their power adapter cables.

That's been pretty decent.

So they don't give you a charger and you buy what you want.

You win.

But he left them in the box for a different reason.

Apple
Most people likely have several USB-C power adapters on hand from past device purchases...

Really?

In my household, of the numerous portable Apple products I've had over the years, including:
iPhone 4s, 5s, 5s, 7, 7Plus, 8, 8, three models of iPod Nano, Airpods2, AirpodsPro, four different model iPads, four models of Apple laptops, and probably a few others I've missed.

NOT ONE has come with a USB-C Power Adapter.

Of the numerous "old style" USB chargers included with all my Apple products most, if not all, of them are being used. There's always one plugged in on the kitchen counter. One by the couch in the living room. One in the home office. One in my work bag. One in the bedroom. One in the car. One connected to my work office iMac. They are not discarded or left in the box.
