Get ready for the shock guys, for the first time ever, Apple is not giving away headphone dongle in the package for its new phones, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone XR. One can confirm the same by looking at “What in the box” section.
This is what you going to get in the box: iPhone, charger, and Airpods earbuds. There’s no headphone dongle to plug earbuds to iPhone. You will need to buy the dongle separately, which costs about $9. We will soon be making the product available at a discounted price.
Why headphone dongle is missing from new Apple iPhones?
There is no explanation from apple about the same for now! People who are already not happy about the pricing of iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone XR are surely going to complain big time. Anyways, following could be some of the reasons why headphone dongles are missing from the box:
- Apple wants its users to shift from wired earpods to bluetooth
- To cut the manufacturing costs
- To make more profit from new iPhones
- The reported increase in the orders of dongles on Bestbuy and Amazon
Above are some of our assumptions, only time will tell the reason reason behind this!
Whats the use of Apple earbuds?
Airpod earbuds you get in the package are pretty good, you can use them over Bluetooth connectivity. If you are an old user of Apple, you must have received the dongle in the past, just use that with your new iPhone! It will work just fine 🙂 Otherwise, you need to buy headphone dongle separately to plug the earbuds to iPhone.
With headphone dongle or without, these new iPhones are surely head turners. Nobody is going to stress much about this accessory for now! All that a user wants is the new iPhone, and that is where Apple gets to choose what they want and how they want.
