Apple removes charger from iPhone boxes saves 1 million tons of metal

Tech giant Apple has stopped putting chargers in the iPhone box along with the iPhone 12, and the company said its move has hurt consumers but contributed to the environment.

With the release of the iPhone 12, Apple launched its smartphones without a charger and also removed charging adapters from the box of previous models. By doing so, the company will be able to save large quantities of copper, tin, and zinc.

Now the Cupertino giant claims in its latest Environmental Progress Report that it can save 861,000 tonnes of copper, zinc, and tin by not putting chargers in iPhone boxes. If we add the rest of the models to this number, the number will go up to 1 million.

Also, it was stated that reducing the size of the boxes contributed to the reduction of harmful emissions. In this case, 70% more iPhone boxes can fit on a transport pallet, which means less traffic and, as a result, reduced vehicle emissions.

Apple announced a year ago that it was reducing carbon dioxide emissions from 25.1 million tonnes to 22.6 million, as well as reducing electricity consumption by 13.9 million kWh.
