Apple removing headphone adapter from iPhone 8/8+
I work at Verizon and just had a customer buy an iPhone 8. I told them they would get a dongle and was surprised to see it missing in the box. I assumed this was a packaging error as the new XS/XS Max don’t come with the dongle.
I check the packaging and it now no longer mentions the adapter on the what’s in the box section. Looks like if you buy an 8/8+ you will no longer get the dongle. Kinda jerk move to remove something out of the box a year later, but figured prospective buyers should know.
Edit: I have just looked at Apple’s website “whats in the box” and the iPhone 7/7+ also have had their adapters removed. Basically if you buy a new iPhone, it won’t come with the adapter, just the lightning cable headphones.
