So if you want to listen to music with wired headphones on your fancy new $1,449 iPhone XS Max, you'll have to shell out an extra $9.00 for one of the clumsy, much-hated and all-too-frequently lost adapters. The story that got us to this point is actually rather long, and it involves Apple slowing down phones with old, worn out batteries to prevent random crashing. iPhone users naturally didn't take kindly to that remote throttling, so Apple made a decision to extend an olive branch to them and cut the price of battery replacement for the entirety of 2018.

Ive added that in addition to increasing the reliability of internet and cellular connectivity, Apple is planning to focus on further separating the Apple Watch from the iPhone in the future.

Many were slow to adapt to the dongle when Apple first debuted the annoying accessory, claiming it was a design failure and an inconvenience to the consumer.

"I'm so zealous about the watch because I see it as making a material difference to people's quality of life and actually their ability to be alive", Ive continued.

The cheapest iPhone is now the iPhone 7, which starts at $US449. Plus, it had a headphone jack.

Plus, the new iPhones already come at a steep price.

Apple iPhone Xc, iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max details surface online
It has happened nearly every time Apple has introduced a new design: iPhone 4, iPhone 5, iPhone 6/6 Plus, and iPhone X . According to some analysts, the new iPhone might be more expensive than the iPhone X which was launched at $1000.

Predictably, the move to charge extra for the dongle generated some criticism on Twitter.

The new iPhone XR's release date is pencilled in for September 21, with pre-orders going live on September 14.

That wasn't the only announcement that garnered some criticism on Wednesday, however. However, the iPhone SE - Apple's only offering with a compact 4-inch display, also failed to make the cut to 2018 range.

Three new iPhones are heading our way: the XS, XS Max, and the XR.

Several users said the new devices sound like the iPhone "excess" and 'excess Max'. There are still other important details we need to know about iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and Xr, such as the clock frequency of the chipset.
