Apple could stop giving iPhone buyers a free headset adapter

A new report states that the firm will not include the converter dongle (pictured), which allows users to plug a common audio cable into models that lack a headphone jack, with its iPhone 2018 line.

Apple may be planning to make it even more uncomfortable for iPhone owners to use traditional headsets with their upcoming devices.

A new report states that the firm will not include the converter dongle, which allows users to plug a common audio cable into models that lack a headphone jack, with its iPhone 2018 line.

Instead, people who do not want to use headphones with lighting cable will have to buy the headphone jack adapter separately.

A new report states that the firm will not include the converter dongle (pictured), which allows users to plug a common audio cable into models that lack a headphone jack, with its iPhone 2018 line.

According to Apple Insider, a note from Cowen analyst investor Matthew D Ramsay says that recent guidance from Apple's Cirrus Logic provider "confirms that Apple will not include the dongle DAC headphone converter in its new iPhone models."

The analyst also noted that the converter will still be sent with some older models.

The new report is just the latest in a series of rumors about the next line of Apple iPhones.

Earlier this week, a 9to5Mac report stated that the technology giant could present support for dual SIM cards with the new iPhone.

The site detected references to a "second state of SIM" in the beta beta beta beta beta developer of Apple, which suggests that the company can develop phones and software that are compatible with the use of two SIM cards.

The code refers to the "second status of the SIM card" and the "second status of the SIM tray", as well as the "dual SIM device", said 9to5Mac.

The inclusion of dual SIM support would allow users to switch more easily between mobile operator plans.

It would also attract international users who often travel to several countries.

However, Apple would be playing up to its competitors, including Samsung, Huawei and OnePlus, which offer smartphones with dual SIM support.

The company never released a dual SIM device in its iPhone line before.

Apple has been competing to gain market share in Europe and Asia, so adding dual SIM support could be an effort to attract smartphone users there.

Until recently, Apple has struggled to capture a significant portion of the smartphone market in many developing countries, but has begun to accelerate.

"Based on the latest data from IDC, iPhone grew faster than the global smartphone market, gaining market share in many markets, including the US, Greater China, Canada, Germany, Australia, Russia, Mexico and the Middle East. and Africa, "Tim Cook, CEO told investors on a call.

Some have suggested that the code of the second state of the SIM & # 39; It could be an indicator that Apple will include an e-SIM card in the iPhone, as it did in the Apple Watch.

An e-SIM card is integrated directly into the phone's processor or modem and allows the device to connect to a faster mobile network.

It is possible that Apple could include dual SIM support in just one of the devices planned for its next line of iPhone, such as the rumored "iPhone X Plus".

Veteran Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that Apple will launch three models at its annual event in September: a 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus, a 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD screen and a 5.8-inch model that faithfully reflects the iPhone X, but with more advanced components.

WHAT ARE THE RUMORS OF iPHONE 2018 UNTIL NOW?

Apple only launched the iPhone X a few months ago, but the latest rumors about its 2018 smartphone have already reached the web.

In August, rumors of the supply chain said the iPhone 9 will be available in two sizes, including one with a massive screen that would be Apple's largest yet.

According to reports, the size & # 39; Plus & # 39; it will have a 6.46-inch screen and will be sold along with a smaller 5.85-inch model in an attempt to compete with Samsung's Galaxy Note.

The filtration came from a source inside Samsung Display, the only OLED provider for the next iPhones.

The source also said that the smaller version was originally going to be a 5.28-inch model, but that the company increased it to 5.85 inches due to the growing demand from consumers for phones with larger screens.

A recent Apple leak suggested that the company could cancel the iPhone X.

One analyst says that the disappointing sales of the new model could lead to the phone being canceled, and production will be suspended as soon as this summer.

This could be the first time that Apple canceled a phone model from the iPhone 5C in 2014.

Experts believe that the lack of interest in the phone is due in large part to the notch, which many Chinese potential customers believe that eliminates too much screen space.

Now, Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities says that Apple will launch three new iPhone models, including a slightly cheaper 6.1-inch phone without 3D touch.

It could also launch an updated iPhone X with a 5.8-inch OLED screen and a larger 6.5-inch OLED model, potentially called iPhone X Plus.

The 6.1-inch phone will have an aluminum frame similar to the iPhone 8 and the screen will be an LCD panel instead of OLED, he predicted.

The 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus will have specifications similar to the current design, but an OLED screen and 4 GB of RAM, predicts.
