Apple saves a huge amount of money by not selling chargers and headphones in the iPhone box

In June 2020, when analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple would remove the charger and headphones included in the iPhone 12 box, many users were surprised. So far, the removal of chargers and headphones has become the norm, not only Apple but many Android smartphone manufacturers have also followed.

Apple and smartphone companies both have a noble goal of helping to reduce the amount of e-waste released into the environment each year, while reducing the size of the box to help transport more iPhones in one shipment. But besides that, it cannot be denied that this decision has saved Apple and smartphone companies a huge amount of money.

According to the latest report, by removing the charger and earphones from the iPhone box, Apple has saved a total of £5 billion so far, or about $6.5 billion. But Apple did not reduce the selling price of these iPhones. At the same time, many new users will have to buy an additional 20W charger for $ 19 and EarPods for $ 19, if the old accessory is not available.

Reducing the size of the iPhone box allows Apple to ship 70% more devices in one shipment, reducing shipping costs by 40%. According to analysts, Apple has saved 35 USD on each iPhone sold.

Since announcing the removal of the charger and headphones in the box, Apple is said to have shipped 190 million iPhones. And the roughly $6.5 billion Apple saves isn’t taxed, it goes straight to the company’s bottom line.
