New iPhones Won’t Come With Headphone Dongle

While they’ll not be including the dongle inside of the packaging of each new phones launched, Apple is still selling the headphone dongles for $9 (roughly RM37).

In addition to that, they’ve also launched their $159 (roughly RM658) wireless AirPods in the same day that year. It was a move that got people debating on was it a bold move by the company or they are just simply milking out their customer’s money.
