According to a recent report from Apple Insider, Apple will be going in a new direction concerning the 3.5 mm headphone jack that we’ve all been using since tape players, they will be removing it and now your headphones will go through the phone’s lightning port where you also charge it. Tama Electric, a Chinese Apple accessory maker has already prepared for the change by creating a lightning-to-headphone adapter for people to connect their regular everyday headphones to the iPhone 7, in simple language, you won’t be able to listen to music on the new iPhone 7 unless you have the new Apple lightning earbuds or bluetooth wireless headphones.
The rumor about Apple removing the classic 3.5mm headphone jack have come up multiple times this year, one rumor is that Apple is removing the jack to make the iPhone even slimmer. Apple is also rumored to be working on bluetooth wireless earbuds. Will the new series of Beats By Dre also have lightning port connectors? Or will they all be completely wireless?
