The idea of not adding charger brick, earphones & only including lightning cable was initiated in 2020 in the launch of iphone 12. However there’s no justification for this operation which aims to reduce carbon emissions and its only being just a way by making consumers spend more on their products.

According to Brazilian daily, iphone12 is still on sale and is being available for purchase on Apple website.

Meanwhile, the Europe Union is also pressuring Apple to ditch it’s all-time best Lightning port and should adapt universal USB type C port.
