The site claims "5G iPhone shipments may be much weaker than expected in 2020", citing unnamed sources. The new iPhone 12 series will have 5G components and in order to accommodate the costs involved in offering 5G support, Apple may not provide the standard 5W charging adapter and also there will be no wired earphones or EarPods, as per analyst Ming-chi Kuo.

When Kuo originally suggested that Apple would not package earbuds with the iPhone 12, many noted that this would help increase sales of the AirPods.

He also has said that he thinks the new phones could have bodies that are more square shaped, akin to the iPhone 4 (if you can remember that far back).

Apple's next-generation iPhone is expected to launch in the fall, but the rumor mill already comes with plenty of details about all the models included in the 2020 lineup. The current 5W and 18W chargers will be discontinued, with the iPhone 12 only shipping with a USB to lighting cable. But the actual power adapter that fits into the wall socket, there's rarely any use for a new one each time you buy a new iPhone.

Kuo believes that Apple will release a 20 watt power adaptor as an optional accessory, with 5 watt and 18 watt versions beginning to be phased out.

The next iPhone can be launched in as little as three months if Apple sticks to its September launch plans.

Apple may be forgoing logic on the iPhones, but Kuo believes that they are developing a new 20W fast charger that will come alongside new iPad models so that at least iPad users will get a new adapter with their devices.

According to some reports, the production is four to six weeks behind schedule because of the global lockdown restrictions. If the upcoming iPhone models don't have the advanced features, iPhone lovers can always have the new iPhone SE, which offers excellent performance at a fraction of the price of a "Pro" model.
