Apple Finally Selling iPhone Dongle for Headphone and Charging

Some early adopters of the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have reported issues stemming from the built-in earpiece. Many in the industry feel that Apple is doing this to market its new 10th-anniversary special edition iPhone X which is dubbed as the costliest iPhone ever. With the second, so the point faced resident of Japan, who bought the coveted Apple iPhone 8 Plus and revealed his already damaged right out of the box.

Apple iPhone 8 series bring minor changes to iPhone 7, 7 Plus.

iPhone 8 and 8 Plus models haven't been available long, but a couple of users have reportedly experienced major problems.

The iPhone 8 Plus is now available for purchase.

Apple's iPhone X is not cheap with a base starting price of $999 for the 64GB model, with the 256GB model being priced $150 higher at $1,149.

This was a smart move on Apple's part because many people like the design of the iPhone and prefer for it to remain the same. There's a new glass back design, a True Tone display, upgraded cameras, A11 Bionic chipset, wireless charging and other changes. It's actually causing some users to experience lag and faster draining batteries.

Among prospective iPhone X buyers, wireless charging was the most appealing feature, which is a bit unusual, given that the technology is also present in the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

But on Tuesday, Apple released a software update (iOS 11.0.2) that claims to remedy the problem. The music quality is nearly the same as when it is plugged into the iPhone.

The delayed launch of the iPhone X also plays a role. You will only be able to use the 3.5mm headphone jack for audio output. While it's going to be really expensive, it could still end up being better than the iPhone 8. It's also possible that a third-party charger was used in the Taiwanese owner's case, even though the owner claims she used the Apple-provided plug adaptor and cable. Fortunately, your backup is still usable and all you need to do is upgrade your phone.
