Getting any money off an Apple device is a bonus especially the latest model. Might only be £10 off but there is also Quidco which has tracked at just under £19.

Apple haters gunna hate


I love Apple, but that saving is not enough to warrant heat imo. A saving is a saving yes, but why not pay an extra £10 and say buy from John Lewis with the 2y warranty lol
Poor timing OP!

Not sure, but I'm sure iPhone 7 isnt usb c.
Are we sure about this retailer? I'd argue it's worth paying £10 more direct from Apple so you have guaranteed support if something goes wrong.

The new ones are still lightning. It’s the other end that’s USB-C

Yes but your new iPhone 12 wire will not fit into your iPhone 7 charging block as the new one is usb-c. You will need a usb-c charging block to take advantage of fast charging. If you’re not bothered about that then the iPhone 7 cable will do the job

That is correct. The only thing you won’t have is 18w power delivery charging capabilities. Given the battery life of the 11 Pro Max I have is already ridiculously good, I never feel the need to fast charge as I just stick it on a slow hub overnight to charge as slowly as possible. I imagine battery life on the 12 series will be on par.

I think in some cases it’s crossed wires, in some cases it’s a misunderstanding of what you mean, and in some cases people just want to comment without actually knowing the correct answer.

The vast majority of iPhone 12 buyers will already have a Lightning cable and charger. If they’re anything like me, their iPhone box remains in the same drawer with the unused block, cable and earphones in it until it is donated to family or sold. There’s rarely any need for me to take a new cable out of the box unless mine breaks, but even then I’ve got dozens of Lightning and USB C cables in my drawers, built up over the past few years.

There will be the odd household buying an iPhone on Christmas Day who won’t have the means to actually charge it, but I think it’s very unlikely that their family will have bought such an item without another household member having a compatible charger to lend them until Amazon (or even Poundland if they’re desperate) provide the solution.

Selfishly speaking, it’s good for me as I’ve had the odd occasion where I’ve sold a phone to Cex and they’ve B graded it because the charging block or earphones had somehow gone walkies. They can’t reduce the value for missing accessories if they were never there in the first place 😜

Lol im confused now. What i had seen is new phone doesn't come with cable or charger, and the only iphone that uses the same as this 12 is the 11.
I personally wouldn't touch iPhones, just money grabbing by not supplying a charger.

One man’s ‘money grabbing’ is another man’s good business. They’re not a charity, and they’ve clearly looked into this before making a move.

The new iPhone does not come with a charging *block* and doesn’t come with Lightning EarPods anymore. It does, however come with a PD compatible USB C to lighting cable for anyone who wants to fast charge it through any PD compatible USB C charger. It’ll even fast charge from an Android USB C PD block, so the odds of someone in the house not having the means to charge are slim to nothing.

Rest assured that next year most Android manufacturers will also stop including charging blocks and earphones too. These items - in particular the earphones - supposedly rarely get used by buyers, so it’s arguably unnecessary plastic being dumped in drawers or landfills if only one in 50 people ever use them. The block is debatable - I personally very rarely take them out and use them as I’ve already got a compatible charger set up by my bedside. If the buyers are coming from an Android then many of them have been providing USB C wall chargers for years too, so these will be compatible

Agree with this. Leaning towards the last option.

This is what Apple and others (Moto G series had only the USB cable in the box since launch, HTC and O2 did the same back in 2012) are trying to reduce.

I hope so but I guarantee it someone will be in news/papers complaining about this very thing.

I reckon you’ll get a better price selling the accessories on their own. Proper enthusiasts/collectors want to complete their collection!

Well it *is* helping the planet, because only people who need an additional wall charger or headphones will now buy them, rather than them being bundled in for every buyer (when every buyer doesn’t need one).

It is also good for Apple’s profits, because those two points are not mutually exclusive.

Define ‘money grabbing’ in a scenario like this though: they’re a shareholder-driven billion dollar company for whom margins and profits are critical. The slightest hitch can cause millions of dollars’ worth of impact on their share price. Apple is always (and has always) looked to ways to improve profit, but has also (to their credit) always been at the forefront of sustainability when it comes to reducing packaging and recycling. Scale this up to factor in logistics, and 200 million smaller boxes saves a hell of a lot of fuel because you can fit a hell of a lot more of them on a shipment.

Every Android manufacturer will start doing this next year, but people won’t moan as much about that because it will be Apple’s fault for giving them the idea.

Funny old world.

Didn't mean you, just in general.
I also think they took the charger out of the box so it’s more likely you will buy one of the new £39 MagSafe chargers.
They have reduced the price of the usb c charger from £29 to £19 which is still overpriced but I suppose helps them get away with it. I still think it should be included.
