No more complimentary chargers for iPhone 12. Third-party chargers are more cost-effective

In the eyes of many, Apple could make more money by selling accessories instead of free chargers for the iPhone 12 series.
From the specific sales volume, Uncle Cook miscalculated this time, many consumers did not buy the official 20W charger, but chose the third-party brand 20W charger.

During the Double 11 promotion, 20W chargers on major e-commerce platforms are selling well.
So why is Apple's official 20W charger so unpopular with consumers?
To be fair, the cunningly smart Cook castrated the iPhone 12 charger, which was a gift to a third-party accessory maker.
The iPhone 12 series is known to come with a Lightning cable on one end and a Type-C cable on the other.
Prior to that, Apple had a Lightning cable on one end and a USB cable on the other.
It is not hard to see that the iPhone 12 randomly presents a Type-C data cable, which clearly doesn't want consumers to use the previous charger, because the charger given by Apple is a USB port.

To put it bluntly, Apple changed the cable port so that iPhone 12 owners could buy their own chargers.
In addition, the full range of iPhone 12 phones can be charged with 20 watts of power, compared to the previous models, which only had a 5watt charge or an 18watt charge.
Increasing the fast charging power of the phone and changing the interface of the data cable are disguised tactics by Apple to force consumers to buy chargers.

In fact, when consumers buy the iPhone 12 series, they either have to buy a separate cable or a separate charger, otherwise it will be more difficult to charge.
Also, Apple's official 20W charger isn't too expensive at 149 yuan.
Still, many consumers are opting for chargers from third-party brands.
In contrast, chargers from third-party brands are more cost-effective.
After a cursory look, the cheapest charger of a third-party brand that supports 20W quick charge is only about 50 yuan, while the slightly more expensive charger is about 100 yuan, which is much cheaper than the official charger.
It's important to emphasize that third-party brand 20W chargers, which support Apple's MFi certification, won't harm your phone's battery.

Regardless of the price factor, many consumers choose third-party brand 20W charger, or because of richer functions.
It's no secret that many of us own more than one digital device, and often travel with multiple chargers.
At present, the third-party 20W charger, priced at about 80 yuan, not only supports the PD quick charge of iPhone 12 series, but also supports the maximum 65W quick charge, and has two kinds of interfaces, Type-C and USB.

Third-party brand chargers were found to be more cost-effective, capable of charging both iPhone 12 and Android phones, and compatible with previous iPhones.
Why would consumers buy an official charger when it's cheaper and has more features than the official Apple charger?
Since many iPhone 12 owners don't buy Apple's official chargers, the company has stopped giving them away, in effect creating an opportunity for third-party accessory makers to make money.
Of course, Apple also makes money when consumers buy a 20W charger from a third-party brand, since MFi certification is also a revenue model.
