Apple rebrands iPhone Stereo Headset, drops ‘iPhone’

Apple has quietly rebranded the iPhone Stereo Headset, dropping the device-specific iPhone name to transform it into the Apple Stereo Headset. This brings the branding of the Headset, which debuted with the original iPhone in 2007 but is now also compatible with the 120GB iPod classic, fourth-generation iPod nano, and second-generation iPod touch, in line with Apple’s more recent In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic and Earphones with Remote and Mic, both of which offer compatibility with these newer iPods as well as MacBook computers. Notably, the Apple Stereo Headset is not compatible with the third-generation iPod shuffle, while its newer counterparts are.
