New iPhones Still Come With 5W Charger, Do Not Include Lightning to 3.5mm Adapter

Apple has revealed what's included in the box with one of its new iPhones. The company is still shipping its flagship iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR with just a 5W power adapter. Additionally, the company is no longer including a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter for free.

The new iPhones support fast charging (up to 50% charge in 30 minutes). However, to achieve these speeds, you need a more powerful charger. Apple used its 30W and 87W chargers for testing purposes. We hoped that Apple would include at least a 12W or an 18W charger with its new smartphones but unfortunately that's not the case.

Some customers will also be disappointed to learn that a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter is not bundled. If you prefer a wired connection, you'll need to purchase the adapter separately for $9.

Pre-orders for Apple's new iPhone XS go live tonight at midnight (PDT) in select countries. For the list of countries in the first batch click here.

A $1000+ phone should include a rapid charger if a $300 phone does.

Meanwhile, even 300$ Android phones get a more powerful charger that actually supports fast charge and also headphones that aren't a joke on the sound spectrum, especially in regards of the lower frequencies. The least that Apple could do would be to box a better charger, but then again, profits have to be constantly maxed..

No problem for me, I've never touched the EarPods at all. Same for the charger, I try to be as careful as possible with battery status.

What does not using the charger have to do with being careful about battery status?
