Here's why these iPhones do not come equipped with cameras:

According to a Redditor, iPhones without a camera are commonly purchased by specific customers due to work policies.

These services offer conversion kits, allowing users to modify their existing iPhones to comply with workplace policies. They also offer ready-to-use non-camera iPhones at a price.

Apple does not currently plan to manufacture iPhones without cameras in the future, possibly due to a significantly increased manufacturing cost.
