The only one laughing at the headphone-to-Lightning adapter is Apple – All the way to the bank

Apple device owners are no strangers to being mocked.

New MacBook Pro users are ridiculed for only having USB-C ports and needing to carry around a USB-A/HDMI/SD adapter with them.

New iPhone owners are no different, with devices like the iPhone X ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack and only sporting a Lightning port.

Despite iPhone owners receiving a headphone-jack-to-Lightning adapter with their devices, it did not stop the naysayers from having a laugh.

It turns out that the only entity laughing now, however, may be Apple.

According to statistics from Thinknum , the 3.5mm adapter – which sells for $9.99 – is the third-best-selling item at Best Buy, a large tech retailer in the US.

According to the figures, the adapter has been a best-seller since it launched in 2016.

The best-selling item is the Amazon’s Fire TV stick, while second place went to Apple’s AirPods, added the report.
