Apple released the second beta of iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2 to developers this morning. This happened just two weeks after the first beta was released.
Apple will definitely not include headphones in the box of the iPhone 12
A slight change in some phrases in iOS 14.2 confirms rumors that Apple has decided to remove headphones from the standard iPhone 12 package; which have always been in the box with new smartphones.
The new phrases are found in the section on how to reduce your exposure to radiofrequency radiation when using your iPhone. Apple previously recommended using the included headphones. Now the phrase has been removed.
Back in May this year, the famous Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who for several years has been making accurate predictions related to the iPhone and other company technology, first announced that the iPhone 12 will not come with headphones in the box.
In addition, we also not expect to have a charger in the box. The only accessory Apple includes with the iPhone 12 should be the charging cable.
Recently, an insider confirmed that Apple will begin shipping the iPhone 12/12 Mini to stores on October 5th.

Judging by the new data published on the web, fans of Apple smartphones will have to pay a lot to join the 5G club. The most affordable fifth-generation smartphone from the company will be the $1000 iPhone 12. But what about the iPhone 12 mini, which has been talked about a lot lately? Unfortunately, it will not receive support for 5G.

The rest of the iPhone 12 lineup will support 5G. Prices start from $1000 for the iPhone 12 with a 6.1-inch screen. iPhone 12 Pro with a screen of the same diagonal will cost $100 more.
