Recent from the “you gotta be kidding me!” division: the brand new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR haven’t got headphone jacks, and so they do not even include a three.5mm-to-lightning dongle.
Sure, that goes even for the nearly-$1,500 512GB iPhone XS Max.
Which means if you wish to use wired headphones or every other gadget that has a three.5mm plug along with your iPhone, you may have to purchase the dongle individually, for $9.
I’ve lived in dongle hell for a yr now, with the iPhone X as my primary telephone and a 2017 MacBook Professional as my primary laptop, and I can inform you that dongles are nonetheless must-have gadgets. And that is even when you primarily use wi-fi headphones. I actually used the headphone dongle right this moment, to plug my iPhone X right into a music participant on the gymnasium — simply because your iPhone is updated doesn’t suggest the remainder of the world is.
The brand new iPhones solely include the next gadgets:
The iPhone itself (phew)
EarPods that join through the Lightning port
Hopefully Apple retains the charger within the field subsequent yr.
