The latest shipment estimates for Apple's upcoming mmWave-enabled 5G iPhones are several million units lower than previously expected, which is intensifying competition among suppliers of AiP substrates, reports DigiTimes.

In an hard work to slash expenses, Apple could not include things like a ability adapter with its impending Iphone models, TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated in a observe this 7 days.

Barclay's analysts predict more than a lack of charger or earbuds when it comes to the iPhone 12 too.

Apple now includes EarPods and a 5W USB-A adapter with the iPhone 11 and SE, while the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max include an 18W USB-C adapter.

Kuo, who has a very strong track record for sharing accurate information with investors about future Apple news, believes the iPhone 12 will include only a Lightning-to-USB-C cable in the box. It could also be seen as somewhat eco-friendly, as power adapters usually go to waste as people have them from previous phone bundles.

In addition to the improved video recording experience, Apple iPhone 12 series will feature a seven-element plastic lens, an increase from the six-element lens that is shipping in the current iPhone 11 series.

Aside from separating the charger from the iPhone 12 box, the company is also saying it is not including its EarPods with the packaging of the newest iPhone. Mind you, experts claim there are four iPhones coming this year. The iPhone 11 still has the old 5W charger, but the 11 Pro has an 18W brick. The screen sizes of these phones are predicted to be 5.4-inches, 6.1-inches, 6.1-inches and 6.7-inches respectively.

Innovation like this typically comes at a cost, and with the latest model, the iPhone 11 starting from £729 ($895) in the United Kingdom, it could be a costly next step.

Kuo also believes Apple intends to end production of both 5W and 18W chargers before the end of 2020. The updated iPhone users across the world would be looking for the inclusion of 5G capability.
