During the launch of the Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE, in addition to introducing new features, Apple also announced a very important change. Specifically, the company said it will stop equipping chargers on the upcoming Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE.
“We know that customers already have a lot of chargers available, and that is wasting the millions, consuming resources and increasing electronic waste. now, we will remove the charger from the Apple Watch. ” Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of the environment division, speaks at the event.
Thus, when opening the box of the new Apple Watch, users will no longer see the presence of a 5W USB charger like previous generations. They will still have a charging cable that they can use with their existing chargers.
The new Apple Watch does not come with a charger
Apple’s elimination of chargers on its product lines is something that has been foreseen by many experts. However, the product line is expected to bring the most influence because this decision is not the Apple Watch, but the iPhone. With Apple selling hundreds of millions of iPhones each year, the fact that it cuts chargers is sure to make a dramatic environmental change.
However, the iPad models have not been affected by this decision of Apple. The iPad Air 4 and iPad 8 both have a 20W charger with USB-C output. This is a relatively easy decision to understand, because not all iPhone users have a fast charger, enough capacity to charge the iPad.
