Apple 2018 Event Recap: iPhone Xs, Xs Max, Xr, Apple Watch

Carl Court  GettyEveryone who bought an iPhone X in November was probably an Apple superfan

The company removed the headphone jack in its iPhones starting with the iPhone 7 and said that it believed the future of audio centered on wireless technology.

Apple has been slowly but surely turning its back on wired headphones for years. The iPhone Xr is coming later than the other devices, and will be available to pre-order from October 19th, with the phone arriving a week after on October 26th.

If you're clinging to wired headphones, you might not like what Apple's doing with its new iPhones.

Arguably the most notable new product: the iPhone Xr delivers iPhone X style with a price cut and some caveats. But beware that if you're planning to buy an iPhone 8, it won't come with a dongle, either. So yes, that's another thing that should put you on the edge of your chair. But if you happen to be one of those people who missed it, the official videos on Apple's YouTube channel can help you catch up quickly.

Speaking of the Apple Watch Series 4 and television commercials, Apple has released its first spot for the latest version of the timepiece. Let us know your views in the comment section below! It's a sea of dongles out there and eventually you have to get on board the wireless bandwagon if you want to completely avoid this nonsense.
