Apple No Longer Bundles 3.5mm Audio Dongle With New iPhones

iPhone Xs and iPhone XR Can Read NFC Tags in Background

Parents will be able to get activity reports from their children's iPhones or iPads, and impose time limits on apps from games and news to social media and messaging.

Speculation includes talk that Apple will introduce three new iPhone models infused with features from a premium iPhone X that debuted previous year with a $1,000 price tag. While the XR does not have stainless steel edges like the iPhones X or XS, it is a far cry from plastic: the back is glass, like the high end phones, and the aluminum sides not only look premium but will be hidden when the phone is in a case, as most will be.

With the launch of the new iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR, Apple has reduced the price of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 models by £100. It is 12 percent more faster and 40% more efficient having 4 efficiency cores with upto 50 percent lower power. There's a type A cable with support of 5W lightning charger.

However, avoiding Apple's requisite dongle, which enables users to plug 3.5mm headphones into the Lightning connector, is now impossible. The iPhone XS Max is very similar but it's essentially a "Plus" version of iPhone XS complete with a stunning 6.5-inch OLED panel.

Interestingly enough, the website has removed the prices for models like iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone SE.

We know that the advanced custom OLED screen on the iPhone X was extremely expensive. The company said the new iPhones would start at USD 750, USD 1,000 and USD 1,100. iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be available for pre-order beginning Friday, September 14 and in stores beginning Friday, September 21. That underdog is the iPhone XR and let us remind you that while it sports an LCD screen, it features a lot of the things that the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max come armed with, including Apple's first ever 7nm FinFET chipset, the A12 Bionic.

But wireless service providers need a way to stand out, often offering at least semi-decent trade-in or BOGO (buy-one-get-one) promos shortly after the official announcement of an upgraded iPhone generation.
