JAKARTA – Apple reportedly saved up to 5 billion pounds or equivalent to Rp. 93 trillion because of its decision not to include chargers and headphones in the latest iPhone products sold to consumers.
According to the Daily Mail report, Wednesday (16/3/2022), Apple itself does not include a charger and headphones for its newest iPhone.
This was initially because Apple wanted to reduce e-waste and carbon emissions. Ben Wood, an analyst at CCS Insight, said that since the policy did not include chargers and headphones, Apple has sold 190 million units worldwide.
For every iPhone sold, Apple is said to have saved £27. This means that with the products sold, Apple is able to save costs of Rp. 93 trillion.
Although they argue that they care about the environment because they don’t include chargers and headphones, Apple is considered to have a commercial interest in this policy.
Wood said that even though Apple had made savings, it did not lower the price of the iPhones sold to the market.
The absence of price reductions called Apple is a compensation for the best technology. Apple said that the iPhone is packed with extraordinary advanced technology.
Some of these technologies include the A15 Bionic chip, super retina screens to camera systems and also 5G technology networks.
