SellCell survey: 74% disagree with Apple removing accessories from iPhone 12 boxes

On Oct. 13, Apple unveiled four new iPhone 12 models — the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 Mini, 6.1-inch iPhone 12, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. The tech giant also announced that the new smartphones won’t come with a charger and earphones out of the box.

Some folks aren’t happy about this. Sellcell, a site for selling phones online, has collected responses from more than 3,000 iPhone users with an older model on what they think about the new lineup, their pricing, and more. Here are the survey highlights:

  • 5G capability is the best feature of the iPhone 12 at 53%, according to current iPhone users.

  • MagSafe technology takes the second spot in the list of most exciting features at 47.8%, followed by the compact Mini’s size (41.9%) and the flat-edge design (37.9%).

  • Other popular responses include the Ceramic Shield glass protection (30.8%), improved camera features (25.9%), faster A14 Bionic processor (20.9%), improved XDR OLED display (16.9%), and new color options (14%).

  • Improved water resistance (10.9%) and LiDAR scanner (8.2%) are among the least popular additions to the iPhone 12.

  • A majority (82.8%) of iPhone users said they aren’t bothered by the lack of much-rumored 120Hz display on the iPhone 12 series, as opposed to 17.2% who said otherwise.

  • A majority (73.9%) disagree with Apple removing the charger and wired earpods from the iPhone 12 box, with 48% saying they “strongly disagree”and another 25.9% saying ‘disagree.’

  • Meanwhile, two in 10 (20.1%) iPhone users agree with Apple’s radical new move, with 7.9% selecting “strongly agree” and 12.2% selecting “agree.” Only 6% neither agree nor disagree with the firm’s decision.

  • When asked what they think about the iPhone 12 pricing, the following were the responses: good value (36.1%), fairly priced (23%), expensive (27.9%), and too expensive (13%).
