Apple has killed off the headphone jack for good and removed the free headphone adapter from the box of all iPhone models.
It has been nearly two years since Apple released the iPhone 7 without a headphone jack, forcing users who still use wired headphones to plug them into the Lightning connector using an adapter included in the box.
Apple has since included a free adapter in the box with the iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X - but no more.
Apple will not ship the Lightning-to-3.5mm audio jack dongle with its new 2018 iPhones, or with its older model iPhones.
Instead, you will have to buy the dongle separately for A$15.
What's worse than a dongle? No dongle!
So if you’re buying an iPhone XS from A$1,629 you will no longer have a direct way to connect your wired headphones to your shiny new device.
Dongles are never a great user experience - as Samsung pointed out in their video below - but not having one when you need one to plug into wired headphones or a speaker, is even worse.
