If you are planning to upgrade to this year's iPhone, it is time you get your own wireless headphones, because Apple ain't planning on bundling one.

A research note has revealed that the 2018 iPhone models will not be bundled with the 3.5mm Lightning port headphone dongle, The Verge reported.

While it remains to be seen whether Apple actually skips on selling these in-the-box, a dongle-less iPhone is a push towards a wireless headphone future (read AirPods) the company wants us to see.

Analysts claim that since the AirPods were introduced, Apple has sought to move users away from the 'classic' wired headphones. However, while bundling may stop, analysts believe Apple may continue to sell headphones at online/offline stores.
