Following the launch of new iPad Pro models equipped with USB-C, Apple today debuted several new adapters designed to work with the USB-C interface.

There's a new 1m USB-C Charge Cable, priced at $19, along with a USB-C to SD Card Reader priced at $39.

Apple has also introduced a $9 USB-C to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter to allow standard 3.5mm headphones to be connected to the tablet, which no longer features a headphone jack.

Last week, Apple introduced a 0.3m USB-C version of the Apple Watch charger, which will work with the new iPad Pro models. The iPad Pro with USB-C is able to charge an Apple Watch or an iPhone over a USB-C cable.

Apple has also debuted a new 61W MacBook Pro power adapter, but it's not clear what's different about it.

All of the new accessories are available for purchase starting today and will be delivered by the end of the week.

The headphone jack adapter should be included in the iPad by default.

Isn’t this a very dumb move by Apple? It makes XS and XR looks outdated with “old and proprietary” Lightning port? And they were barely a month old?

I’m all in for USB-C port as it will be widely available and open standard, but iPad Pro will be the bastard child of iOS hardware.

Now if you own the new XS Max and iPad Pro, you have to carry around TWO type of cables, dongles and wired headphones .. WTF?!!?

Yup. Lots of dongles hanging off the new iPad Pro, for the professional musician and audio pro. MacBook Air might be a better option now. Strange they found room to keep the headphone jack on it.

Well, at least now there’s an iOS device on which native headphones can be used on a Mac as well. Still need a dongle for the iPhone regardless, and can USB-C headphones be used on an iPhone at all?

This is one more reason why my next phone may not be an iPhone. I can use USB-C audio on my laptop (plus 3.5mm of course). If I could use it on my phone, and on the iPad, then problem is solved.

If I stick with Apple, I'd need 3.5mm analog headphones plus two adapters - one Lightning for the iPhone and one USB-C for the iPad. One was messy but, ok, whatevs. Two is just dumb.

Guess what Apple - I'll switch to a different phone and I can stick to just USB-C headphones, and won't have to try to juggle multiple adapters.
The real question: why are you using 3.5mm headphones? If you’re a serious audio nut, you’d be using a portable DAC.
