How to Charge Your iPhone 12
With the arrival of iPhone 12, we are faced with a difficulty – no charger will be provided in the package when you buy it. Apple says it is part of their environmental goals to not include power adapter or EarPods in the package.
To some, it may be a good thing, saving the earth, re-using USB chargers on the market. In this case, you may re-use any of the USB chargers on the market, connecting the provided USB-C connector to the lightning cable. That is provided you have a USB-C port on your computer or charger.
For those without a USB-C port on your computer or charger, you may have to get an adapter that will convert from USB-A (male) to USB-C (female) before you can use the provided USB-C cable. Alternatively, you may re-use your existing USB-A to lightning cable that you may have, and you are good to go!
For others, they would really need a new charger to charge up their iPhone 12. The options they have, is to purchase a brand new charger from Apple, or find a compatible USB-C charger on the market.
