There have been a lot of rumors about the upcoming iPhone. It’s believed that Apple is going to ditch the standard 3.5mm headphone jack in the iPhone 7. If this happens, customers will either have to buy new headphones that are compatible with Bluetooth or the Lightning port or they will have to purchase adapters that make their existing headphones compatible with the port. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak believes that if Apple does this it’s going to irk a lot of people.
Speaking to The Australian Financial Review, Steve Wozniak said that removing the headphone jack is going to force customers to buy new headphones or adapters and that’s going to “tick off a lot of people.”
Some would argue that it would be easier to use Bluetooth headphones with the new iPhone should the headphone jack not be included. However, Woz is not impressed with Bluetooth as it is. “Bluetooth just sounds so flat for the same music,” he said.
Apple can always upgrade to the latest version of Bluetooth which addresses the issues that many audiophiles have. If that happens, Woz will be willing to use Bluetooth headphones as the latest version provides more bandwidth and improved quality. We’ll see,” he said. “Apple is good at moving towards the future, and I like to follow that.”
Apple is expected to launch new iPhones next month. Many are more interested in the iPhones it comes out with next year as it would be the 10th anniversary of the iPhone next year.
