Does anyone here have an iPhone 12? I purchased one about a week ago, after my 3 trips and about 3 hours of craziness at Verizon.
There isn’t much difference between the 12 and 11. The edges of the phone are square instead of the rounded 11’s edges giving it a bigger screen area (so I’m told). The camera is supposed to better - a step above the 11. The other difference is that the charging cord has changed. The end that goes into the phone is the same but the end that goes into the plug thing is different. The plug thing is of course different AND it is not included with the phone purchase. All of my other iPhones through the years came with earbuds, a cord, and a plug. This one only comes with a cord that is maybe 3’ long. The new plug (a separate purchase) is supposed to provide a much faster charge than the old version. Since the plug in opening on the phone is still the same, you could use the old version of the cord and plug. But I was told by the Verizon employee not to use the old cord and plug as that will damage the battery.
As I’m looking at my receipt, I notice what I call a plug is actually called a wall charger. It was an extra $35.
With my old phones, I had a charger by my bed, one in the living room and one at work. I purchased extra-long cords so I didn’t have to sit next to the wall to use my phone if it was plugged in. I was also told to only use cords that were 15W so the battery wouldn’t be damaged (new phone). I looked at Amazon (much cheaper than the Verizon or Apple store). I can’t find a 25W wall charger. The description shows 25W but then it shows that it’s really 20W. I really don’t want to purchase chargers and cords if I don’t have to. I wonder if the Verizon guy is told to say that so more of their merch is sold.
So after this lengthy post, my question is - if you have an iPhone 12, do you use your old cords and wall chargers? Googling it gives me both Yes and No, depending on the website.
