Recently Apple stopped shipping the chargers with their phones. According to them, this step was taken to reduce waste generation. But, deep down we know they had done this to boost their retail chargers sales. This reason is still not much clear why companies are removing chargers from smartphone.
Now, Xiaomi is following in their footsteps, will also stop shipping chargers in their upcoming phones. The chargers will stop shopping from Xiaomi Mi 11 series.
The reason that was given by Apple that why they are removing chargers from phones is that this will reduce the packaging by 70% and they will be able to ship more devices at the same time.
Another reason given by Apple is that majority of the iPhone users already have chargers that’s why the company decided to remove chargers from Smartphones.
As of now, Samsung is next to remove the charger from the box from Samsung Galaxy s21 series. This forces the customers to buy the charger separately just like other accessories like earphones. On the other hand, this is beneficial for the customer as they can get the same charger as the flagship variant
However, their motives for removing the charger cannot be confirmed. From the business point of view, we can say that the removal of chargers helps the company to make profits and also help in reducing the manufacturing cost.
