You Won’t Believe Which Apple Products Best Buy Sells The Most Of
The most sold Apple products at Best Buy for the past two years haven’t been its computers or smartphones – it’s actually been the dongles
Most people have a love-hate relationship with Apple’s line of dongles. Well, it’s probably more hate than love. After deciding to remove the headphone jack on the iPhone 7s, as well as recently switching over to USB-C ports on the MacBook and MacBook Pros, Apple has more or less forced its loyal customers to buy a plethora of dongles in order to make anything compatible. The dongle phase has nearly gotten so out of control that some have even gone so far as to joke that Apple is now officially a dongle company that happens to sell smartphones and computers.
A recent report by Ceros proves that the most sold Apple products (not just accessories) at Best Buy have been dongles. Specifically, the 3.3-foot USB-C to Lighting cable and the 3.5mm headphone jack to Lighting adapter have been the two best selling dongles within the past two years. Even with Apple’s AirPods taking the spot of most sold individual product in the second quarter of this year, dongles still generate the most overall revenue. Apple recently became the world's first trillion dollar company and the never ending need of Apple-branded dongles, headphones, and chargers definitely didn't hurt getting it there.
We're not going to lie - most of us here at The Sitch have at least one or two dongles lying around. But thankfully, there are a plethora of Bluetooth headphones available, which at least eliminates the need for one more dongle.
