Apple in upcoming 2018 iPhones may no longer provides a 3.5mm headphone jack converter

- Advertisment -

According to Apple Insider, a new analysis shows that Apple will not provide a lightning-to-3.5mm headphone jack converter in this year’s new iPhone case.

Apple supplier Cirrus Logic, which produces audio hardware for products such as the iPhone, announced quarterly revenues of $254.5 million this week. This number exceeded expectations. At the same time, an analyst also revealed some details about Apple’s upcoming new iPhone.

Cowen analyst Matthew D. Ramsay said in a report to investors that Cirrus’ second-quarter forecast “almost confirms that Apple will not bundle DAC headsets in its new iPhone.” The analyst said that the converter will continue to be available to some old iPhone models.

Another analyst from Barclays, Blayne Curtis, made similar predictions as early as April this year.

In 2016, Apple abandoned the 3.5mm headphone jack when it released the iPhone 7, and instead sent the audio through the Lightning interface. To help people make easy transitions, Apple offers a lightning-to-3.5mm headphone jack converter for every new iPhone. The disassembly of this component indicates that the DAC chip for signal conversion was designed by Cirrus.

In the following 2017, Apple continued to provide lightning-to-3.5mm headphone jack converters for the iPhone X and iPhone 8 series, but this is expected to end this year.
