Apple makes great products, yes. But sometimes, just sometimes, it comes up with batshit crazy, utterly ridiculous, joke of a product. Presenting, the Apple Dongle.
You thought that the Apple AirPods were flimsy things that didn’t stand a chance in the chaos that’s our lives? Well, think again.
What’s the purpose of Apple dongle?
If you’ve seen an Apple Pencil charging from an iPad, You’ll notice that it sticks out of the iPad like an abomination. There’s always a danger of someone hitting the Pencil and breaking the godforsaken thing!!
Anyways, in order to ease your pain and to make charging the Apple Pencil “easy”, Apple bundles this dongle along with the Pencil.
“The dongle is meant to connect the Pencil to a Lightning cable, such as those used to charge iPhones and the iPad itself.” (Source)
However, its size makes it far from “easy” to use. The connector is so small that it’s virtually guaranteed to be lost within two weeks. And if you’re like me, in two hours.
And when something is useless, there’s no better place to ridicule it than Twitter.

Oh, and then there’s this:
I see your Orbit and raise you a Good N Plenty… or is that an Apple Pencil cap? pic.twitter.com/dPfwQwpvAg

I bet you missed that there’s an actual Apple Pencil cap in the pic!!
Don’t believe me? Go back and look again!
To cut a long story short, this is perhaps the most ridiculous thing Apple has created so far. We should be thanking our lucky stars that they are not charging us for this!! On the other hand, no one (in his right mind) would buy such a thing!
