Apple's iPhone 12 can help gift giving this year
While Apple may be synonymous with luxury in the tech world, there are things you can pick up at its store that fall under $50 — and we're not talking adapters.
Apple is actually making a push to not include accessories in the iPhone 12, which does make the boxes smaller, but also means Apple gets to charge you for some things it used to toss in for free. That actually works in your favor during gift-giving season, because EarPods and chargers are now needed items. (And if you're someone who has never lost a set of headphones or a charger, you're a unicorn.) So this year, if you know someone who is getting one of these new iPhones, you actually have a chance at gifting them something they can use — and fits into a $50 budget.
There are more items, too — cases, colorful bands and some cool charging systems — all at prices that aren't typical Apple-busting fees.
