Congratulations, Apple's 5v1a charger is finally about to become history.
The price of the iPhone is more than 10000, and the 5v1a charger is obviously out of place. Since the iPhone 11 Pro was launched last year, apple began to provide 18W fast charging chargers randomly. Many fruit powders call their conscience.
This year, the good news is, fill the specs
Not only are there no headphones, but also chargers
In fact, it has been reported before that the iPhone 12 series will not be equipped with earpods wired headphones. On the one hand, earpods are now in low utilization rate, and true wireless has become popular. It is rare to see anyone carrying earpods. Whether it is commuting or office, it is better to simply cut down and reduce costs; second, Apple also hopes to boost airpods by taking advantage of it Even if it is out of stock.
From my personal usage habits, I can accept cutting off earpods, because it is rarely used.
But the latest news shows that the new iPhone 12 series may not even have a charger.
According to the current disclosure, Apple will support 20W (9V x 2.22a) PD fast charging in the iPhone 12 series, which is still the usb-c to lightning connection mode (the C-Port iPhone may be at least until next year, more likely never).
20 W charge
In fact, Apple has already supported the fast charging of PD on the iPhone 8, but last year's iPhone 11 Pro only included a quick charging charger.
This year, the fast charging specification slightly increased to 20 W, although and Anroid current top 65 W still have a gap, but compared to 5 W has been much better.
However, in order to control the cost, Apple has come up with another trick: no charger attached.
Guo Mingji of Tianfeng securities predicts that the iPhone 12 series launched in the second half of this year will cancel the attached charger to reduce costs, and from the second half of this year, the iPhone se will also begin to cancel the attached charger.
In this regard, Guo believes that supporting 5g will significantly increase the material cost of the iPhone 12. In order to maintain the same starting price as last year's iPhone 11, Apple has chosen to control the cost in other aspects; in addition, the earpods, a wired headset, will no longer be included.
Mr. guo also noted that 20 W chargers will be mass-produced in the second half of the year, while the previous 5 W and 18 W chargers will be discontinued. Apple does want to eliminate the old 5 V1A, but users are needed
Not only Mr. Guo, but also analysts from the British Bank of Barclays also said that Apple may not have any charger attached to the iPhone 12, but only left a usb-c to lightning connection in the box. Users need to buy a new 20W charger for about $29, the same price as the current 18W charger. This is similar to that of airpods, which is wired only and has no charger.
The price of iPhone accessories is not low, the original 5 V1A charger in the official website price is 145 yuan, and fast charge is more expensive, the price of the connecting line (1 meter) of USB-C to lightning is 145 yuan, the USB-C charger of 18 W is 243 yuan, which adds up to nearly 400 yuan; and the EarPods price of using lightning interface is 223 yuan.
Of course, this is not cost price, but cut this part, will still make the whole machine profits significantly increased, iPhone 12 screen is completely replaced to OLED, the use of Qualcomm baseband tax,
If Apple can keep the iPhone at the same starting price last year, the iPhone 12, which has improved its screen, 5g and photo taking, will still have a high price performance ratio. However, users need to pay for a quick charge (the cheapest is less than 100 yuan), or continue to use the old 5v1a at home.
It could become the norm
Domestic accessories manufacturers, in fact, should be very happy to hear this news.
Apple's fast charging is a more general PD agreement, in fact, very good to find a suitable fast charging scheme, the price will not be very high, many enterprises have passed the MFi certification, purple rice 18 W Type-C fast charger USB-C Lightning data line set for 85 yuan, if not too troublesome, then there are green couplet, win, Anker and other domestic manufacturers of accessories optional, cheap big bowl; of course, not bad money can also be directly apple website.
But it's not hard to understand the fact that the old 5 V1A charger is so useless that the new fast charger is expensive. Apple finally decided to send the root line, buy your own charger! Decision cost transferred to the user, fast charger is not difficult to buy, but this after all still has a certain threshold, need to have a certain understanding of digital products.
My attitude towards this charger change of iPhone is that I can understand but do not support it. At least a 5v1a will be sent to users who use iPhone for the first time as a basic charging guarantee. If we insist on the advantages, in addition to reducing the starting price, the packaging box can be smaller, the transportation cost can be saved, and it is also more conducive to environmental protection.
There's a key word in the report:
At present, the specifications of domestic mobile phones on the fast charging is really fast, but the various agreements are often exclusive, if the practice of Apple to cancel the charger gift, it is bound to make the fast charging cost significantly higher, unless the starting price of the real profit (at least not lower than the official price of the charger).
But the consumer psychology is actually very delicate, if you sell 3999 directly to send the attached charger, it is acceptable, if you sell 3799, the charger needs to add 200, then the psychology is a little awkward.
There is no need to make a fuss about the change of the charger, the accessories that are randomly attached to the mobile phone is also a process of change in itself. In the era of function machines and smart phones to get up early, the accessories inside a mobile phone is quite rich, not only have headphones, but also protective shells, car chargers and even pendant dolls; but now a charger a mobile phone is a doll
Apple was scolded for cancelling mm lightning 3.5 headphone jack, but now most users have moved to the wireless age, and chargers are the same. Fortunately, we can buy good chargers instead of being forced to use them.
Anyway, just as we are used to not having a 3.5mm headphone jack, we will probably get used to the days when we buy mobile phones without charger.
