Apple Might Stop Bundling a Headphone Adapter With This Year's iPhones

A Barclays analyst reckons Apple will not provide the headphone jack adapter with the 2018 iPhones. Now, though, it might be having second thoughts.
Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis told investors in a note today that their research indicates that Apple won't bundle a dongle with the 2018 iPhones.
For example, AppleInsider notes, "some of the Apple product packaging is off", referring specifically to all the "Chinese labeling on the Lightning to headphone jack adapter in the center of the picture". The dongle costs $9 when sold separately.
Apple's "courageous" and controversial compromise of killing the headphone jack in the iPhone continues to create contempt among critics and fans for the past year and a half.
Apple might be planning to make it even more hard to use your old 3.5mm headphones if you buy a new iPhone this year. Last year, Barclays correctly predicted that Apple would include the accessory with the Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. The company's Qi-based wireless charging solution (flaunted for its unique ability to power-up an iPhone 8/X, Apple Watch, and AirPods wireless charging case simultaneously) has been seriously delayed, however. Apple's AirPods are also wireless.
Not including the adapter could push customers to buy Apple's wireless AirPod earbuds.
Apple removing the headphone adapter doesn't mean that users wouldn't be able to use wired headphones. While it's not flawless, the adapter's absence would surely leave a bruise on Apple's reputation if these predictions are true. And it's unlikely the company would comment on such a move until it's ready to announce new iPhones later this year.
