Apple is no longer shipping the 5W Power Adapter in box with the Apple Watch Edition and Apple Watch Hermès models, MacRumors is reporting. It was previously believed that Apple Watch Edition and Apple Watch Hermès models would be the only models to retain the 5W power adapter.
Citing environmental concerns, Apple had announced at its “Time Flies” Event earlier this month that it would be removing the power adapter from Apple Watch boxes.
While the Apple Watch Edition and Apple Watch Hermès Series 6 models initially shipped with the 5W power adapters, all other Apple Watch Series 6 models have been shipping without a power adapter since launch.
Apple’s page has not been archived so it is not possible to pinpoint exactly when the change took place, but it seems to have occurred within the past couple of days. Screenshots from the previous web page show that the Series 6 Apple Watch Edition and Apple Watch Hermès did contain a 5W USB power adapter.
Apple’s updated website now also states that the Apple Watch does not include a power adapter. “Please use your existing power adapter or add a new one before you check out.”
