Even after making fun of Apple for eliminating the headphone jack in 2016, Google ended up removing the port itself just one year later. While the reason behind this is to embrace wireless headphones, Google thankfully does provide a USB-C to 3.5mm adaptor for those who want to use wired headphones.

The accessory started out priced at $20, which was definitely quite a bit of money to fork over for a small adapter.

Apple will no longer give free dongles with new iPhones
One of the most frequent criticisms we've heard about the iPhone X is that its 5.8-inch screen simply isn't big enough. Here are all the Apple devices that have received price cut after iPhone XR and iPhone XS launch.

Spotted by Android Police, the Google Store page for the USB-C to 3.5mm headphone adapter has been updated to reflect the price and features of the new model. The new adaptor has now been spotted on Google Store, where it is priced at $12 (approximately Rs 870), which is $3 (approximately Rs 220) more than the previous variant. No, it's not new Pixelbooks, Pixel Buds or a new paid version of Google Wave.

Google has but to disclose the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones, however taking into account the worn headphone adapter has been replaced altogether on Google's achieve, it stands to cause that this would possibly perhaps perhaps also be the adapter to ship with the fresh Pixel phones. Since there is an integrated digital-to-analog converter hidden in the little cable, most of the gains are likely attributed to changes made to that section. Rather than costing $9 like the old one did, the new dongle costs $12. Meanwhile, the new adapter also offers 38 percent more music playback time when compared to the previous model.
