[YCFRO] Apple

Yesterday, Apple announced the new iPhone 7 and 7+ which now does not include a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Instead, they are bundling a lightning connector version of the same product and if you REALLY want to use a 3.5mm headphone connector, you can use the included adaptor.

What in the actual hell are you thinking Apple? How is removing a key feature of any device in the past 10 years ‘courageous’?

What brain did you nuke before making a design decision like this? Why are you charging $150 for a pair of Bluetooth "AirPods"?


There was nothing wrong the the 3.5mm headphone jack. I use it every day to go to and from work, at lunch, when I’m travelling and now I have to carry extra battery packs because my iPhone battery and the battery in the "AirPods" are going to die in less than 12 hours of use.

Why remove the headphone jack to include another camera?

As I joked on Twitter:

iPhone 8: Removed cellular, wi-fi and speakers!

It shall be known as the Apple Camera.
