Apple survey asks iPhone users what they do with old power adapters
Amid rumors of Apple not including either wired headphones or a charger with this year’s upcoming iPhone models, a new survey from Apple is asking customers about what they do with old power adapters when upgrading to a new device.
As noted by 9to5Mac, the new questionnaire is being sent to existing iPhone users and those who have recently just upgraded, asking what they did with their previous power adapter from their old iPhones.
The question reads: What did you do with the USB Power Adapter that came in the box with the iPhone 7 Plus you replaced? – The USB Power Adapter is used for charging from a wall outlet, and you connect the adapter to an iPhone with a separate charging cable.
The answers available on the survey are:
- Gave it to a family member or friend
- Recycled it
- Lost or misplaced it
- No longer working or not working well
- Still using it at home
- Still using it outside of my home (e.g., work, school, other location)
- Still have it, but don’t use it
- Sold it or traded it in with the iPhone
Apple is said to be wanting to keep the cost of the iPhone 12 around the same as the current-generation iPhone 11, with reports suggesting that by removing the free headphones and charger that usually come packaged in the box, the company is hoping to offset the cost of adding 5G networking components.

All four of this year’s new models are expected to offer 5G cellular performance, with this set to be one of the biggest selling points for the new models, alongside an all-new design similar to the squared design of the iPad Pro.
The Apple Post has released exclusive 2020 iPhone renders, offering what we believed to be the most accurate representation of the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
