Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at TF International Securities who’s been at the forefront of Apple news for quite a few years now, has said that the iPhone 12 will no longer include power adapters in the box. Instead, Tim Cook will sell 20W power adapters separately as “optional accessory”. And later this year, Apple plans to end production of its 5W and 18W power adapters. As for the specs of the new charger, it’ll be similar to the existing 18W adapter, featuring USB-C Power Delivery for fast charging.
In addition to the next iPhones, the iPhone SE (2020) will also ditch 5W power adapters in the box. However, current generations of 10.2-inch iPad, iPad Air, and iPad mini will still include 12W chargers.
Leaks continue to surface as the iPhone 12 series gets closer to its September release date. According to a well-known insider, Ice Universe (@UniverseIce on Twitter), if there’s no “accident” leading up to the final development of the device, Apple will include 120Hz ProMotion displays for the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Unlike iPad Pro with LCD 120Hz, the upcoming iOS devices will feature OLED instead. Combine that beautiful displays with Apple’s optimized software — then you have the perfect recipe of the best smartphone display in 2020.
