Apple's next iPhone reportedly ditches the headphone jack


Apple's quest for ever-thinner, ever-smarter devices may produce another casualty: your iPhone's headphone jack. A rumor at MacOtakara claims that the next iPhone might drop the 3.5mm port and use the Lightning port for audio instead. The move would let Apple slim its phone even further and take advantage of Lightning's features, such as headphone-based DACs and app launching. You'd have to use an adapter for any conventional wired headphones, or else make the leap to Bluetooth. You'll want to take this rumor with a big grain of salt. MacOtakara doesn't have the greatest track record, and a lot could change in the 10 months between now and the future iPhone's possible launch in September next year.

  • Apple Boots the Headphone Jack for Iphone 7

    I don’t dislike Apple. I prefer PCs to Macs, but I’ve been a proud iPhone and iPad owner for years. However, after watching the iPhone 7 announcement I’m so glad I already upgraded to an iPhone SE, and not just because it’s the only properly sized iPhone left. We had months to prepare for Apple’s oh-so courageous decision to sell you another adapter dongle, but I still feel like preventing users from using the standard headphones that work across countless other consumer electronics is a hostile, spiteful, and arguably insulting move.
