Apple today quietly put out new variants of its Lightning cable and its in-ear headphones.
The new Lightning cable is a half a meter long, half the length of the one that ships with Apple's latest iOS gadgets, and that's currently Apple's top seller. Despite the shorter length, both cables cost $19.
The other change is a bit more minor, with Apple adding its larger, fat-finger friendly remote to its $79 in-ear headphones. Apple changed up its design on that remote with its EarPods last September (see CNET's review of those here).
It's not unusual for Apple to make small tweaks to its products mid-lifecycle without too much fanfare. Yesterday the company released an updated version of its MacBook Pro with Retina Display,as well as the cost of upgrades to higher SSD capacities.
Correction, February 15 at 1:21 PT: An earlier version of this story used an incorrect link for the $79 in-ear headphones. The link has been updated.
