Apple's iPhone 12 will not include a charger or earphones, according to the tech industry's top research analyst.

Instead, Apple is set to sell a more powerful charger separately, says Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities. Analysts from Barclays previously predicted the same strategy.

The potential omission has caused unrest among sections of the online tech community, with some accusing the Cupertino-based company of profiteering.
