Apple included a spare dongle in the boxes of the iPhone X, 8, 8 Plus, 7, and 7 Plus phones, but it isn’t so generous this year when it comes to including a 3.5mm audio dongle in the box. The 3.5mm dongle is no longer a free accessory and the new iPhones won’t ship with Apple’s own fast Lighting to 3.5mm audio jack adapter.
Instead, Apple will still sell you the dongle separately for $9. Despite it being the least expensive dongle that Apple sells, it still comes at a cost now.
