The people (or should I say, the apple fandom) has spoken, the new iPhone 7 is here and it is revolutionary. Wireless earphones and a non-existent audio jack - go wireless, or go home that's it.
Some are not keen on the idea, but ditching the 3.5mm jack is already a rolling feature for some devices and as always Apple, with its flagship product - the iPhone 7 - doesnt include a 3.5mm audio jack which will make the idea of using wireless audio devices further pushed to mainstream usage.
As what I've published a few months ago, there will come a time that this analog port will be dropped and most likely forgotten.
Why is it gone?
Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller said the firm had been motivated by "courage" to get rid of the headphone jack.
Schiller said on stage: "Some people have asked us why we would remove the analogue headphone jack. It's been with us a really long time and it comes down to one word: courage. Our team has tremendous courage."
Another idea is the further innovation to create a thinner and more lightweight device. Consider the idea that some mobile phones, have also dropped the radio/FM antennae which also begs to differ - in the future, will every function of our mobile device point or only use wireless recievers or cloud based connections? no more use for USB?
I say, maybe. We have wireless chargers now, we have online/cloud storage for files / photos / vidoes, online content streaming, and wireless desk remote controllers from our mobile phones. The future maybe too far off to understand, but it will always start with our present innovations.
