iPhone 8 and iPhone X Ship with the Usual Accessories – Nothing Special, At All

Now that the iPhone 8 and iPhone X have been announced, more official details regarding the headsets are starting to emerge. We know that the smartphones are the first from Apple that support fast charging, and now we also know what ships inside the box. If at this point you are feeling excited, then you might want to dial down a bit. Both the iPhone 8 and iPhone X ship with the same old accessories as before. There’s absolutely nothing new or extra from Apple’s end.

If you were hoping for a pair of AirPods with the $999 iPhone X or a fast charger, then you’re absolutely out of luck. Both smartphones ship with the same accessories in the retail package. This includes a 3.5mm adapter, a Lightning cable (not USB-C), EarPods with Lightning and more. Things are topped off with the usual documentation and probably a SIM ejector tool thrown in for good measure.

Given Apple’s drastic migration to USB-C and Thunderbolt 3, it boggles our mind why the company is not shipping its mobile products with USB-C accessories. At least a cable and a charger that supports up to 15 watts of power is more than enough to appease users. But apparently, it seems as though ‘courage’ is not anywhere in sight when it comes to such things.

Nonetheless, the smartphones are the best that Apple have made to date. But will the greatness of these smartphones translate into healthy numbers? That remains to be seen. The iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus will be up for pre-order in a few day’s time whereas the iPhone X will go up for pre-order next month. A long wait, but we’ll see if it’s a worth it one.
