Despite being an expensive 5G smartphone, the price of the iPhone 12 will be the same as iPhone 11. And not including the charger and earbuds in the smartphone serves two reasons. One might be to lower the freight cost & the second one might be to reduce the size of the packaging of the iPhone 12.

Many believe that this could also be an attempt to boost the sales of wireless AirPods with price starting from 159$ compared to 25$ earbud. Kuo also clarified that the new iPhone 12 will also feature a 20W charger. Which will be a dozen times faster than the 5W & 18W chargers from its predecessor iPhone 11.
