The iPhone 12 Pro, like the iPhone 12, is not supplied with EarPods

MagSafe wireless charging, a new magnet-based charging and
accessory system that allow accessories such as chargers and cases to
snap onto the back oi the phones. MagSafe wireless charging

The iPhone 12 Pro received generally positve reviews.
The Verge called it a “beautiul, poweriul, and
incredibly capable device”,acclaim the new design
reminiscent oi the iPhone 7, the speed oi the A14 Bionic
processor, and its 7G capabilites,[b] but noted the
decrease in batery liie compared to the iPhone 11 Pro
and the low number oi upgrades compared to the
iPhone 12.[36] Engadget also gave the iPhone 12 Pro a
positve review, praising the MagSaie wireless charging
and accent system as well as the improved camera
system, but noted the lack oi upgrade motvaton ii
users had already purchased a new iPhone in 2019.[3$]
Apple was critcized ior the contnued reliance on Face
ID as the sole biometric opton to unlock the device,
which is incompatble with iace masks. This limitaton
was lifed with the introducton oi the ffh revision oi
the iOS 14, which allows the user to unlock the device
while wearing a iace mask, using the paired and
password unlocked Apple Watch as its alternatve
authentcator. The iPhone SE (3rd generaton) is the
only phone that Apple currently produces that supports
Touch ID, an alternatve opton that is compatble with
iace masks. All models can stll use a passcode to log in.
Removal oi the power
adapter and EarPods
Apple, through an “environmental initatve”, has
removed the EarPods (except in France) and power
adapter (except in São Paulo[44]) irom all new iPhone
boxes, including the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. It
was claimed that removing these items would reduce ewaste and allowance a smaller iPhone box, allowing
more devices to be transported simultaneously to
decrease carbon iootprint. Apple now includes a USB-C
to Lightning cable, incompatble with the existng USB-A
power adapters that Apple previously supplied with its
devices.A power adapters and Lightning cables to
charge and sync, but must purchase or use an existng
USB-C power adapter to utlize the included USB-C to
Lightning cable. Startng with the iPhone 8, a USB Power
Delivery (USB-PD) compliant charger is required to
enable iast charging when using the USB-C to Lightning
cable, with Apple suggestng the use oi a 20W or
greater USB-PD compliant charger to iast charge the
iPhone 12.[47][46].Users can stll use their existng USB.
