The Lightning to 3.5mm jack adapter outsells AirPods and Apple Watch at Best Buy

Dongle Dangler, ya no perderás el adaptador del jack de auriculares en el iPhone 7

It is figures like these that make us realize that we are in the middle of a transition between connections. Best Buy, the most widespread and visited chain of stores in the United States, has the Lightning to 3.5 millimetre jack adapter on its best seller list .

And not only that: the chain sells more units of this adapter than AirPods, or Apple Watch units. A cable of just a few inches has become the second best-selling Apple product in Best Buy . A direct consequence of the disappearance of the 3.5 millimetre jack from the iPhone 7: millions and millions of people do not want to give up their classic headphones.

It should be remembered that this adapter is included in all iPhone models that no longer have the traditional headphone connection, but users still lose it or simply want one more adapter. Its price of $9 in the United States makes the purchase decision fast. In Spain it costs 9 euros, and in Mexico it costs 199 pesos.

This ends up being a good deal for Apple, which is pushing everyone to embrace a wireless world with AirPods. Whoever resists doing so and chooses to use those adapters does nothing wrong, of course, and in Cupertino they have known how to benefit well from it . But beware, there are already rumours that the adapter will no longer be included in the iPhones to be introduced in the autumn.
