iPhone Headphones

January 8th, 2016, 3:46pm by Jake

This rumor has been going around for years now: Apple is killing the ubiquitous 3.5mm headphone jack on the next iPhones. What’s odd is that’s the headline on Techmeme, but the story on 9to5 Mac doesn’t mention the headphone jack at all. What gives?


Personally, I use so many different headphones — breaking, losing or just alternating– that losing the headphone jack is a near deal breaker, and probably keeps me in the 5S a bit longer. Or upgrading to a 6S in a year. I had a set of Bluetooth headphones I liked, but they stopped working after two years. And never stayed in my ears well for long runs. I have over the ear noise canceling headphones for traveling. Sets I leave in my travel bag and gym bag permanently. And so on. If Apple got rid of 3.5mm headphones, it would be a major expense or hassle. What’s the rationale anyways?
