It's an understatement to say that Apple makes many popular products that people like to buy: iPhones, iPads, MacBooks and more. But no one apparently who loved the 3.5 mm headphone jack to the Lightning Port dongle – at least if Best Buys sales data is something to join, according to a report from Ceros ( via ]. 9to5Mac ).
Yes, as the chart indicates, the humble $ 9 dongle has dominated as the most purchased Apple product in the blue and yellow hued electronics store since the second quarter of 2017, taking over the former champion: the three-foot long line cable . (As a warning, Ceros data does not include iPhones – which can be explained by how Best Buy counts different SKUs, the fact that Best Buy may not sell many iPhones, or that which including iPhones would have broken joke, although it is unclear which explanation is correct. Still it's still the most popular accessory.)
Now anyone can argue that the dongle only peaks in the chart because of the fact that Apple did the still-frustrating decision to remove an industry standard standard port from its devices or because the adapter is easily lost or prone to break. But I would say that these people obviously only encounter their fallen favorite accessories like light cable or wired EarPod headphones, and have not yet realized the brave elegance that the dongle can bring to life.
Unfortunately, in the last quarter, the powerful headphone jack dongle has been out of the way by another Apple product: AirPods. Because Apple apparently has played us all the time.
