iOS 10’s new Apple Pay integration adds a $30 cable cover
Posted On July 13, 2021
The iOS 10 update for Apple’s mobile payment system for the iPhone has brought a new cable cover for the device’s new, cheaper iPhone X and iPhone XS models.
The cover is the first time Apple has made the iPhone X a cable cover, but it’s the first iPhone to include a cable in the $30 price tag.
Apple says the cable cover adds $30 to the iPhone’s retail price.
The $30 cover is a significant price cut compared to other Apple accessories that include accessories like USB chargers, wireless earbuds and more.
iPhone X users are able to purchase a cable accessory that’s just as cheap for just $19.99 on Apple’s website.
The cable cover’s $30 is also a major improvement over the $29.99 iPhone X accessory that Apple sells separately for $15.99.
Apple has made cable covers a standard feature of the iPhone for years, but the $10 cover for iPhone X was a first.
The $30 accessory is the only cable cover to be offered in Apple’s $60 iPhone X. Apple also introduced a $25 cable cover earlier this year that features a wireless earpiece.
