An Apple Survey makes it more obvious that the company will skip shipping a power adapter with the upcoming iPhone 12. Apple is reportedly surveying a limited number of users about how they use their power adapters given in the iPhone boxes.
The Apple survey asks users what they have done with the power adapters that came with their previous iPhones. Users in Brazil have reportedly received the survey that includes questions about how they use the charger. One question that points to the upcoming development is asking about the fate of the charger that was included with the old iPhone XR. Some users in Brazil also reported that Apple asked about the adapter that came with the user’s previous iPhone 7 Plus.
The survey comes amidst reports that Apple will skip shipping a power adapter and EarPods with the iPhone 12 models. The company is reportedly developing a 20-watt fast charging adapter that will be sold separately, as an upgrade to the 18W charger which Apple ships with the iPhone 11 Pro and iPad Pro.
Apple surveys usually indicate upcoming surprise moves from the company. For instance, right before the 3.5mm headphone jack was killed off, Apple sent a questionnaire about headphone jacks to users of MacBook Pro.
