Xiaomi made fun of Apple for abandoning the free charger in the iPhone. The company dedicated a Twitter post to the event.
On October 14, a short video of the unboxing of the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro smartphone appeared in the global account of the Chinese brand. According to the video, there is a charging adapter in the box with the flagship. “Don't worry, we haven't removed anything from the box,” the publication says. The post appeared the day after the iPhone 12 was released, which may be a reaction to the news about a simplified set of Apple smartphones.
The post went viral with over two thousand retweets and five thousand likes. Xiaomi subscribers mostly greeted the entry with irony. “Does that mean, guys, you literally don't care about the environment and our future life? It's a shame … “, – joked the user under the nickname @najiabukhassira.
Since October, Apple decided to sell its smartphones in a simplified package – without a charger and wired headphones, as well as in a more compact box. Thus, the iPhone comes with the device and the charging cable. The company explained this decision with concern for the environment.
Reputable insider Ming-Chi Kuo reported that Apple would remove free headphones from the box in May. The analyst noted that in this way the company will reduce the cost of transporting smartphones and attract consumers' attention to the wireless headsets of the AirPods line.
