Apple No Longer Bundles 3.5mm Audio Dongle With New iPhones

Apple No Longer Bundles 3.5mm Audio Dongle With New iPhones

On Thursday evening we reported that Apple had unveiled three new phones that are set to go on sale this month. This, of course, means that consumers will have to fork out extra money to be able to used wired earphones/headphones with their brand new (and rather pricey) iPhones.

iPhone XS and XS Max Specs in China: iPhone XS is the smallest device among all the iPhones that have launched at the yesterday's Apple event.

The availability date for the iPhone Xr, set for October 26, was a bit later than expected, but it won't impact unit demand, "particularly given most early adopters will skew to the Xs Max".

However, avoiding Apple's requisite dongle, which enables users to plug 3.5mm headphones into the Lightning connector, is now impossible.

Dual-SIM is here finally, as Apple adds support for the setup on all three of its newest phones, the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and even the iPhone XR as had been rumored for some time now. While consumers' desires have changed since Apple CEO Steve Jobs put a charge into the smartphone industry in January 2007, would a 6.5-inch iPhone been produced if Jobs had not succumbed to pancreatic cancer? Now these users have options, with the iPhone Xs Max having a larger screen and the iPhone Xr costing less.

Overall, Beavis feels that "the "cheap" iPhone certainly doesn't feel that way", and he came away from its design and build quality impressed. With the iPhone Xs though, Apple is taking things to a different level altogether. But if you happen to be one of those people who missed it, the official videos on Apple's YouTube channel can help you catch up quickly. However, the Xr ASP of $750 is a "modest offset".

Pricing details weren't available at time of publish. The iPhone 8 Plus, on the other hand, will sell at Rs 69,900 for the 64GB variant and Rs ₹84,900 for the 256GB variant. "Battery service at $29 may be limited to one fix per iPhone". However, given Apple's iPhone X released previous year and the fact that the price started at $999.00, the attached price-tag is one of the most important factors of any Apple release.

The iPhone XR looks like it has nearly all of the same features as its higher-priced siblings.

The new iPhone XR's release date is pencilled in for September 21, with pre-orders going live on September 14.
