The tech giant Apple was slammed and trolled by many few months ago for excluding adaptor and earphones from their new models when Apple cited the reason of reducing the carbon footprints from its product which will be beneficial for the environment. Mobile companies such as Xiaomi and Samsung also made fun of Apple for their move but now these companies too are following the strategy of Apple.
Xiaomi won’t be providing adapter with their upcoming Mi 11 smartphones and the announcement in this regard was made by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Lei Jun on the Chinese micro-blogging website Weibo. The reason that Xiaomi gave was the same as Apple which was helping in the protection of environment.
The Xiaomi CEO has also talked about some features of the upcoming Mi phones and said that the retail boxes of Mi smartphones will be thinner than the boxes of other smartphones which provide charger.
Earlier in October, Xiaomi trolled Apple by posting a video with the caption, “Don’t worry, we didn’t leave anything out of the box with the #Mi10TPro.”

It is also being said that soon Samsung will follow its arch-rival Apple and it is slowly deleting all the old posts in which it trolled Apple for not providing chargers. However as of now, nothing can be said with confirmation about Samsung’s future plans.
When Apple came up with this plan of excluding chargers, it stated that with this little change, it would be able to reduce 2 million metric tons of annual carbon emissions which is similar to getting rid of 450K cars from the road in a year. It also said that by excluding chargers, its boxes will get thinner and it could ship 70 percent more boxes in the same space in comparison to the last year’s shipment.
