    In Europe, maybe, where that's the new standard for cell phone plugs. I highly doubt we'll get those here in the US. At least not for free.

    iPhone 5s with iOS 7
    Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic
    Lightning to USB Cable
    USB Power Adapter

    Why would Apple give us something for free that they could instead charge us for?

    This is actually legally required in Europe whereas not legally required in the US. In the US you need to buy it...

    Yeah but I was pointing out that there is no Lightning to Micro USB adapter listed on the UK Apple website where it mentions what's in the box with the 5s.

    I'm annoyed that tiny little adapter is $20. I'm guessing they don't want to cannibalize the sale of regular lightning to USB cables.

    They are still including the headphones free. That's definitely not something they need to do anymore.
