Ahead of the much-anticipated iPhone 12 launch that is slated to take place later this year, tech giant Apple has now started sending surveys to the iPhone users in order to enquire how they have been using the USB charger that comes along with the device. The clear reason behind this movies still unknown. However, news is rife that the Cupertino-based tech company is planning to exclude the USB charger and EarPods in the box while rolling out Apple iPhone 12 later this year.
According to a 9To5Mac report: In the survey, users were questioned on what they did with their previous USB charger after bringing home the new handset. Apple is sending across this survey to those who recently bought a new iPhone.
The report further revealed that Apple clarified that its survey is about the USB power adapter and not related to the Lightning cable. The USB charger is used for charging using a wall outlet. You can plug the charger into an iPhone with a separate charging cable.
A Twitter user Thorzinho @bedabb revealed that he had bought an iPhone 11 this month and received the survey data Apple and he was intrigued by this question, “What did you do with the USB Power Adapter that came in the box with the iPhone 7 Plus that you replaced?” The USB Power Adapter is used for charging from a wall outlet, and you connect the adapter to an iPhone with a separate charging cable. He, then, was asked to select all that apply:
- Gave it to a family member or friend
- Recycled it
- Lost or misplaced it
- No longer working or not working well
- Still using it at home
- Still using it outside of my home (e.g., work, school, other location)
- Still have it but not using
Meanwhile, Apple has taken an historic decision for the Mac. The tech giant during the WWDC20 has announced that it will transition the Mac to its world-class custom silicon from using Intel processors to deliver industry-leading performance and powerful new technologies. Developers can now get started updating their apps to take advantage of the advanced capabilities of Apple silicon in the Mac. This transition will also establish a common architecture across all Apple products, making it far easier for developers to write and optimize their apps for the entire ecosystem.
