Apple discontinues iPhone X, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s and in-box headphone adaptors

Posted: 13 September 2018 7:09 am News

Alongside the new slew of iPhones and Apple Watches announced this morning, Apple has culled its product offerings, ending sales of several phone models as well as bundled lightning headphone adaptors.

Each year when Apple announces new iPhones, it quietly removes select older models from sale, while cutting prices (and usually capacities) for the surviving elder set of the iPhone family.

For the launch of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR, Apple has chosen to cull the iPhone 6s and iPhone SE, making the iPhone 7 its lowest-cost device. It's also (as many predicted) cut the iPhone X out of its lineup entirely, although if you're still keen there should be retail models available for a little while through third-party retailers.

That leaves the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 as Apple's lower-cost iPhone offerings from today, available at the following price points in Australia.

Model Price
Apple iPhone 7 32GB $749
Apple iPhone 7 128GB $919
Apple iPhone 7 Plus 32GB $929
Apple iPhone 7 Plus 128GB $1,099
Apple iPhone 8 64GB $979
Apple iPhone 8 256GB $1,229
Apple iPhone 8 Plus 64GB $1,149
Apple iPhone 8 Plus 256GB $1,399

Also surprisingly seeing the chop today is the inclusion of a lightning-to-3.5mm headphone jack adaptor in the box for the new iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max. It was an inclusion with iPhones ever since Apple got rid of the 3.5mm headphone jack on its handsets. You'll now have to cough up an additional $15 for an adaptor if you want to use cabled headphones with your new iPhones.
