Crystal Baller: Killing the headphone jack and other stupid Apple rumors

  • William D

    I’m going to save this simply because I believe the headphone jack says are well and truly numbered

    • BarryDwight

      Yeah I’d tentatively agree, but this is debunking the imperative aspect of the rumor. A cordless set of Beats given away free with iphones that also still have headphone jack (or something like this) would be an indicator. Nothing yet at all…

    Give me an adapter that can have a Y cable to charge and plug a 3.5mm headphones into and ditch the 3.5mm jack off the phone. Gives more room for BATTERY.

    I firmly beleive they would never ditch a real headphone jack, especially if the next set of phones are larger. However a lightning audio connector could still be a true rumor, if you put it in the perspective of CarPlay. CarPlay requires a wired connection to the car to function. So it would stand to reason all your protocols would be transmitted through that connection … audio, mic, data, video… Anyone who has tried to use Siri through a bluetooth connected car system would pray this rumor is true.
