The iPhone 12 might not come with a power adapter, reports said

This is a classic Apple power move.

Future iPhone 12 buyers may find the box emptyer than they expected, with Apple rumored to be eliminating chargers that usually come in the box, according to a well-known analyst.

Ming-Chi Kuo from TFI Securities say that Apple is trying to reduce costs by reducing the size of its packaging, which will reduce shipping costs. The biggest item in the iPhone packaging, besides the cellphone itself, is the 18W power adapter.

New iPhone buyers will still receive a charging cable in the box, but there are no electric bricks to connect it to the wall. Apple will reportedly fix this by selling a separate new 20W adapter.

Last month, Kuo reported that Apple would also stop putting a pair of free earbuds in an iPhone 12 package to increase demand for the already popular AirPod wireless headphones.

Apple has included a pair of free headphones in every box since releasing the first iPhone in 2007.

Without free headphones, customers will need to buy an adapter to connect their old 3.5 mm headphones to the iPhone – which left the headphone jack a few years ago – or need to go out for Bluetooth headphones.

Apple previously included the Lightning to 3.5 mm jack adapter in the box when removing the headphone jack, but stopped giving it away for free when releasing the iPhone XS line in 2018. The adapter sells for $ 9 on the Apple website.

Apple reportedly plans to release four new iPhone models later this year, which will serve as the successor to the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro families.

The expedition will explore "an area still little known": the Portuguese Sea.

The Oceano Azul Foundation has joined the municipalities of Cascais, Mafra and Sintra and set off together this Saturday on the ship “Santa Maria Manuela” for a scientific expedition that will last until 12 October.

On board will be 50 researchers from institutions such as the Portuguese Institute of the Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA), the Hydrographic Institute or the Portuguese Society for the Study of Birds (SPEA). During this time, scientists will embark on what they consider to be an “essential” process of “investigating the region’s natural values” that will allow for a “global assessment of the marine biodiversity” that exists in that region of the ocean.

Every Portuguese wastes 183 kg of food a year, and this is “inconceivable”.

Every Portuguese wastes 183 kg of food a year, and this is "inconceivable".

President of the Portuguese Federation of Food Banks Against Hunger Isabelle Jonet considers food waste unacceptable and absurd, as every Portuguese wastes 183 kg of food a year.

As World Food Loss and Waste Awareness Day is celebrated, speaking at a conference on the subject in Lisbon, the official recalled statistics released by the National Statistical Institute and said the situation was “worse than expected.”

The data, official and published for the first time, refers to 2020 and shows that 1.89 million tons of food was wasted in Portugal this year, so each Portuguese wasted an average of 183.6 kilograms of food.

INE statistics show that families spend the most. The figures show that over 1.2 million tons of food was wasted by families this year, followed by catering with over 237 thousand tons, trade and distribution with 214 thousand tons, primary production with over 101 thousand tons and food . industry, about 61 thousand tons.

“We buy too much, we buy bad, we let it go bad. It is unacceptable that a third of what is produced ends up in the trash,” the official said, speaking at a debate organized by the United Movement Against Waste.

Ana Cristina Carrola of the Portuguese Environmental Protection Agency (APA), who also took part in the debate, stressed that the average amount of waste per year per inhabitant in the European Union is 173 kg, less than the 183 kg that is thrown away by the Portuguese.

“This is unthinkable in our day,” he lamented.

Now it’s time to rest and get back to work, already thinking about the next challenge, which is also very important for us, – said Evanilson after the match.
