apple without charger

Apple launched the most anticipated gadget of the year – iPhone 12 on October 13 during a virtual event. The iPhone 12 became the trending topic online, wherein, people discussed its specifications and made memes about the prices. But, it seems like, the tech giant Apple will be in the headlines a little longer, especially with its rival companies like Samsung taking a dig at them.

SAMSUNG TAKES A DIG AT APPLE

At the launch, Apple confirmed that they will not be shipping power adaptors or EarPods in the phone box, only a USB-C to Lightning cable. Customers will have to buy these things separately. This did not go down well with a lot of people and this opened the floodgates of memes targeted at Apple. Samsung also participated in the meme fest and took a dig at the brand.

The official Facebook account of Samsung Caribbean recently shared an image that featured the power adaptor of the new Galaxy phone. The caption of the post read, “Your #Galaxy does give you what you are looking for. From the most basic as a charger to the best camera, battery, performance, memory and even 120Hz screen on a smartphone (sic).”

WHAT DOES THE INTERNET FEEL ABOUT THIS?

The post became viral as soon as it was shared. It garnered over 69k reactions along with 10k comments and 47k shares. Have a look at some of the comments:

THE REASON APPLE DISCONTINUED THE POWER ADAPTOR

Apple discontinued the two things to do their part in reducing the e-waste. Apple released a statement on their website which read, “Across the iPhone family, we’re removing the power adapter and EarPods that often go unused, but including the fast-charging USB-C to Lightning cable that most people need. That shrinks packaging and more boxes per shipment mean fewer shipments overall. We’re also transitioning our manufacturing partners to renewable energy. Altogether, this eliminates over 2 million metric tons of carbon emissions annually. (sic).”
