Apple wants to eliminate the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 - Rumor

According to the Japanese blog Macotakara, Apple has decided to abandon the standard 3.5 mm audio jack in the upcoming iPhone 7. This will "more than 1 mm" to reduce the thickness of the device compared to the current flagship.

The first iPhone, released in 2007, had a thickness of 11.6 mm. iPhone 3G and 3G were slightly overall (12.3 mm), but the next-generation iPhone 4 / 4s was much thinner - 9.3 mm. Issued in 2012, the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5s are even smaller, their specifications show the thickness of 7.6 mm. Smartphones last year, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is show a record for the "apple" phone the thickness of 6.9 and 7.1 mm, respectively. Waist latest flagship of the display 3D Touch were slightly more - 7.1 and 7.3 mm, respectively.

Apple has decided to abandon the audio connector, to make the iPhone «fine record in the history of smart phones," the source indicated. But if the company is going to take this step, the new devices the company will not be able to use the most modern headphones - they are designed for 3.5 mm jack.

How then to listen to music? It is obvious that with the release of the iPhone without audio sharply increase sales of Bluetooth-headset. At the same time Apple is ready to to give up the 3.5-mm connector. Specification Brand digital interface include the possibility of the use of headphones and headsets with Lightning-connector.

Lightning-interface is able to provide a quality sound, as well as to give the devices powered by the battery of the smartphone, so that their manufacturers can not be spent on internal batteries (some headphones, for example, with active noise cancellation systems require additional power supply). The reverse option when headphones can play a supporting role pauerbanka (portable charging) and fuel the iPhone from its battery at the time of its owner enjoys music. In any case, the new iPhone will be equipped with 7 staff EarPods supporting Lightning, so the problems with listening to music does not arise.

Refusal of standard audio connector is designed to make iPhone 7 even thinner. However, to produce a more subtle and smart phones can be when using a 3.5mm port. For example, the Chinese Vivo managed to release a smartphone X5 Max thickness of 4.75 mm, while maintaining both audiodzhek and slot microSD-cards. Nevertheless, considering the fact that the Apple become thinner, the rejection of a 3.5 mm connector looks almost inevitable.
