>Apple has dropped the 3.5 mm headphone jack for iPhone 7, will rely on wireless

http://9to5mac.com/2016/01/05/apple-dropping-removing-headphone-port-iphone-7/


Really though, what is the point of this? is losing even more battery life worth it just to get the phone a few mm thinner?

Dont forget too that android brands are going to copy so, yall cant really shit talk about this

Elephone just made a phone with a 6k mAh battery almost 1cm thick.
I'm thinking of getting it.

DESU I like my Galaxy better with a case.
For some reason I find the added 2-3mm of thickness makes it considerably more comfortable to handle.
A cracker-thin phone would probably feel awful.

I honestly believe the iPhone 5s had the perfect size. Going bigger or thinner makes no sense.

The one upside of thinner phones is that eventually my phone will just disappear into my wallet-case, making the wallet-case about as thick as phones used to be. That's pretty cool.

It sucks if you use your phone without a bulky case though.

Probably doing it for both making it thinner as well as making it easier to water proof the phone, as that's what the rumors are saying the iPhone 7 will feature.

Either way, I prefer my S5 Active. Especially since now I have to buy the phone full price or go with AT&T Next bullshit, I doubt I'm getting a new phone any time soon.

you're retarded. 5" phones should be minimum for readability/basic functionality. there's no reason to be using 4" phones in this day and age -- you may as well be using a BB or a dumbphone if you want a small device. Also who the fuck uses ethernet on a laptop? that's fucking retarded. i bought a macbook air in 2011 and first thing i did was buy the ethernet adapter along with it. i ended up using the ethernet cord a total of 5 times since then

You're all autistic. It's not about thin or not, Apple want to down the cost of production of his iPhone. That's the same thing that a glued battery or no sd port. The ultimate goal is to make the iPhone without manpower. Just to glued a motherboard, some sensors,a chip and a battery.

Whats the advantage of keeping analog connectors around over possibly slimmer and stronger digital connectors? Other than compatibility, I don't exactly own that many headphones and I wouldn't care if I had to go buy another $40 pair anyway. Wireless is retarded though, as far as headphones go.

Was seriously considering swapping my 5S to a 7 when it came out, but if it drops the audio jack completely might have to pick up a 6S+ or some Sony phone.

I see, you still have to convert the digital signal to analog somewhere down the line, and having it on headphones would increase the price/another point of failure etc. Plus it would be hard to implement on earphones as well I assume.

It's a bad thing for customers, though. Standardized jacks and peripherals foment competition. We've had this situation before with every asshole company using their own proprietary earphone jack and it resulted in them going back to the standard 3.5 mm one.

IT's so they can roll out their own brand of proprietary DRM in the future.

Standard headphone jack can be plugged into anything that supports a headphone jack input. Speakers, radios, etc.

This lets them start down the road of having a proprietary wireless encryption scheme that will only work with licensed Apple headphones, ensuring that "public piracy" becomes a non-issue to the record labels.

Same. USB Type C would be great for phones, but I don't want to use it for heaphones

All I ask for is Android manufactures to put headphone jacks on the bottom of the phones again

Who the fuck are the people who actually demand thinner phones. Literally everything I hear about phones is complaints about battery life, no one ever comments on how amazingly thin someone's phone is. It's like the few people that design new phones want them thinner just so they can wank over the technical wizardy they have to pull to do it.

>>52266987
People with small hands demand smaller screens, not less thickness.
>>
>>52266987
small hands would mean a smaller screen, not a thinner phone. I have a z5c which is a brick compared to some others, but the screen is smaller and you don't even notice the thickness unless you look at the side.

Apple products are all beta products.

Operating systems:
Yosemite - Lags like piece of shit, graphical user interface is sloppy
El Capitan - Another fast release OS with more features, this time they tried to correct problems in Betamite, some people report having wireless bugs on it.

Computers:
Macbook - single port mac, with shit cpu and no replaceable parts.

Macbook pro 13"- Just a minor update and price rise. woow it's fucking nothing (they are stalling in making something interesting)

Macbook pro 15" - Gets uncomfortably hot when doing really heavy work on 15". Some models throttle.

iMacs - Only high ends are actually worth something but not for the price of 3 grand, problem with boot camp and having to use specific Apple drivers apparently. (on windows)

iPad pro - Tablet with no real professional programs and locked down piece of shit OS. Doesn't even come with pen. Just iPad with bigger screen and better specs with "pro" joke slapped on product name. Yes, base model doesn't even have 3g/Lte how can it even have a "pro" on it

iPhone:
iPhone 6S - let's face it, the 3D touch is gimmick bullshit and you very rarely use it, you paid for this beta test with battery life and increase in weight. Most problems lies in iOS which is too locked down piece of shit.

Misc:

Apple watch - niche product with shit battery and needs phone to get best of it. Stupid, inconvenient and expensive.

Apple pen - A 99 dollar pen accessory for thousand dollar "pro" tablet.

iOS - Locked down piece of shit.

Which is the most important point nigger. 99% of wired headphones on the market are 3,5 jack. The ones that aren't are either probably the proprietary connectors from old phones or large jack.

You can't download anything from the app or itune store without a apple id. You can't use Apple Music free trial, or dowload any free app without apple id. Apple id is linked to many services to Apple' first party software.

In addition in order to change regions on the itune store, you must provide a update billing information on your payment method

Do you have apple id when download those services? Here are the official steps of into making apple id without payment info.

Either way you have to provide a email address to download free apps from the app store. Apple ID had security measures like preventing you from downloading free apps if it's been disabled.

This seems like a deal breaker for me. iPhone isn't too think. Honestly if it gained a few mm and got a larger battery that would be fine as well.

But yeah, this is going to drain battery even faster, and it creates the need to keep your BT headphones charged all the time. So its really two batteries you have to worry about. No thanks.

Apple users. iPhones are fashion accessories. That's why every iPhone case has a circular window so you can still see the Apple logo.

>Oh you have the new iPhone 6, that's so awesome

When the iPhone 7 comes people will be amazed at how thin it is.

Meanwhile people who want to connect headphones are going to have to buy a Lightning DAC specially made by Apple.

Apple will tout it as a feature, since they will say that their Apple DAC has much higher sound quality.

Apple will also make a Lightning Beats, where the DAC will be built into their Beats headphones.

It's marketing genius. It's like Jobs came back from the dead.

Can't really blame them. It's surprising that they haven't done this earlier. After all, if you aren't innovating your stagnating. I imagine they'll come out with a compromise version of the iPhone 7, kind of like Nintendo's 2DS is a compromise version of the 3DS that can play 3DS games without being as expensive or risky to your young retarded child's eyes.
