An iPhone 12 with USB-C would really help the environment — not a missing charger

During last week’s Apple’s iPhone 12 event, the Cupertino-based company was proud to tout its environmental initiatives. Its offices, data centers and stores currently run on 100% renewable energy and the company is aiming for net zero “climate impact” by 2030. 

Apple’s environmentally conscious redesign has extended beyond corporate offices and malls. This year’s iPhones will not ship with earbuds or a charger, all in the name of lowering needless waste. This allows 70% more iPhones to be shipped on pallets and, according to Lisa Jackson, VP of environment, policy and social initiatives at Apple, “it’s like removing 450,000 cars from the road per year.”
