Here is who said what:
Announcing the “next generation” of the iPhone Apple CEO Tim Cook called it “a huge moment for us”. The event marked the second Apple product event in weeks.
“This is a huge moment for all of us and we’re really excited,” Cook said.
“We can finally say, 5G just got real,” Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg quoted by CNN during the Apple event.
While shipping the new iPhone 12, the box would not feature headphones or a charging brick in order to cut down on waste.
“More than 2 billion Apple power adapters are out in the world, and many customers already have wired headphones or AirPods,” vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives Lisa Jackson said.
“Removing these items also means a smaller, lighter iPhone box. We can fit up to 70% more items on a shipping pallet. Instead, iPhone users will have to buy EarPods and the USB power adapter separately,” Jackson said.
