American manufacturing giant, Apple, is getting set to unveil its 2018 iPhone models. So far, three models have been identified which includes the 5.8-inch iPhone XS, the 6.5-inch iPhone XS Plus, and the 6.1-inch iPhone 2018. These devices all come with a notch, full screen, Face ID, and wireless charging. There are also rumors that Apple will introduce dual SIM with at least one of these devices although recent reports suggest that this feature will be limited to China. As of now, the company has begun mass production at Foxconn but there is a bad news. According to supply chain analysts, the new iPhone will not come with a Lightning port – 3.5mm headphone jack adapter.
Gizchina News of the week
Apple eliminated the 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7 but it provided the adapter which was some sort of consolation even though it takes away any hopes of listening to music with a headphone while charging. Apple also launched the Bluetooth wireless headset, AirPods, but its price is as high as $180 or more. Presently, the Lightning port – 3.5mm headphone jack connector is currently priced at 77 Yuan ($12) on Apple’s official website. If the new iPhone really doesn’t come with this adapter, then many users will have to spend 77 Yuan ($12) extra.
Good news for Apple users, another thing that should be free you need to purchase it separate with real $.
money hungry whore
Yet another reason to NOT buy an iPhone.. greedy company that release overpriced phones, claiming how revolutionary they are when in reality the tech has been used by other manufacturers before. Remember the con in changing the original iPhone charging port to the lightening port, forcing users of older iPhones to go out and by new charger adaptors at an inflated price so that they could use new docks/peripherals etc.. Now a cheap headphone adaptor costing a few pence to make is dropped, so new owners will have to buy the grossly inflated official adaptor via Apple. What with the alleged ‘unintentional’ dumbing down of older iPhones via updates, iPhones releasing with reception issues and phone bending issues, the restrictive nature of its App store, and continuing DRM issues, I wonder why people actually buy their products.
Oh come one iphone should be loaded fools anyway, they can buy as many adapters as they want. And the first iphone did bring some innovative stuff all right, innovative enough to make google redesign their android smartphone concept.
