Apple is making an attempt to offset the price will increase that include upgrading the iPhone vary to 5G, in response to Kuo. Smaller packaging could be extra eco-friendly and in addition cut back transport prices, since extra telephones might match right into a single cargo. (Encouraging extra gross sales of AirPods can’t harm, both.)
At this time, Apple contains EarPods with all iPhones, a 5W USB-A adapter with the 11 and SE, and an 18W USB-C adapter with the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.
