We’ve simply seen a video that will counsel how the iPhone 12 field will look. The footage reveals an alleged iPhone 11 field – one of many new smaller ones, now that Apple has pledged to cease together with earbuds or wall charger blocks with their handsets – which can doubtless look the identical because the iPhone 12’s packaging.
The video comes courtesy of a tweet by person DuanRui with the caption ‘Iphone 11 model new packaging.’ The brief footage reveals an iPhone field that’s a lot slimmer than those we’ve seen in previous years.

Given the iPhone 12 is just barely smaller than the iPhone 11 (by a number of millimeters in size and width, and it’s 0.9mm thinner), we’d absolutely anticipate the brand new Apple cellphone’s field to be about the identical measurement.
Whereas it’s solely doable that this footage isn’t genuine, it does appear to be the brand new smaller bins Apple confirmed throughout its iPhone 12 reveal occasion. Afterward, it was revealed that Apple would additionally depart earbuds and wall chargers out of bins of the iPhone 11, iPhone XR, and even the iPhone SE 2020 – besides in France, the place bins will nonetheless embody the earbuds, per GSM Arena.
Wait, why received’t they arrive with earbuds or a wall charger?
Throughout the iPhone 12 reveal event, Apple defined why it will pass over the wired ‘EarPods’ earbuds and wall charger block that often include their telephones: given how few folks use them or nonetheless have a few of every mendacity round from older purchases, the corporate pitched their omission in new iPhone bins as an environmental measure.
That is doubtless true, although leaving out the gadgets is a cost-saving measure, too. Maybe that is helped Apple preserve the 5G-capable iPhone 12 Professional and Professional Max costs on the similar stage as final 12 months’s iPhone 11 Professional and Professional Max when many different flagship gadgets have gotten value bumps to accommodate 5G chipsets and modems.
However Apple is not flawed about redundancy: we are able to attest to the plethora of Lightning chargers and earbuds that pile up when proudly owning a number of Apple merchandise. Don’t fear, you’ll be able to nonetheless purchase the earbuds and wall charger blocks individually.
