iPhone 12 - Which chargers are compatible with the new iPhone 12 models

The new iPhone 12 models are being marketed in all countries. Some have been luckier and the iPhone 12 is already in stores, while in other countries the "third wave" is expected. In Eastern European countries, starting with November 6, 2020, the iPhone 12 will be available for pre-order, and deliveries will start a week later.

As it is rumor the launch event of the new iPhone models, Apple clearly told us that in the new box iPhone 12 we will not find one feeder / plug charger si casti. The company justified that in this way the volume of waste from these ancillary accessories will be significantly reduced and in addition, a smaller box will allow the company to deliver up to 70% more devices on one pallet. In addition, almost everyone has a charger from an older phone in their home.
In reality, this decision by Apple to eliminate the charger and costs, is not to increase the final price of the iPhone.

It's good that in addition to the iPhone 12, in the box, Apple put us one USB-C cable to Lightning. Here is a problem. Most of the chargers in people's homes are from USB-A (old model). So far, Apple has only released two iPhone models with USB-C chargers, and these no later than last year. iPhone 11 Pro si iPhone 11 Pro MAX are the only ones to have received these USB-C chargers.

The USB-C to Lightning charging cable won't help much, if you haven't had an Apple device with a USB-C charger to use for the iPhone 12 in the past. new charger and be very careful because it must meet Apple standards and be MFI. That's so you don't wake up with messages like "This cable or accessory is not certified and may not work reliably with this IPhone", About which I wrote here.

For example, if you have a 96W USB Power C Power Adapter from a MacBook Pro, you will be able to use it safely and for charging any iPhone 12 model.
