Apple's New MacBook Pro Isn't iPhone-Friendly

This is the kind of stuff that pisses me off about Apple. Gouging your customers for $25 just so they can charge their iPhones is lame, especially after they just dropped a ton of cash on the MacBook Pro and an iPhone 7. Weak.

However, with USB-C the only game in town, you might reasonably be wondering: How in the world do I connect my iPhone to my sleek new MacBook Pro? The frustrating answer is that you won't be able to do so out of the box. Instead, you'll have to buy a dongle. This is especially frustrating because many people use their notebooks for a) charging purposes when an outlet isn't necessarily handy and b) for transferring photos and other data.
